I went there last night with a friend, the place had 2 other groups in it. One group frequented the area and said it was busier than usual. It's a neat place, not much to find but it would be good for paintball. The other groups were local teens, who also told us about the best way to get there. I've attached a picture of where to park (old church parking lot, now a disk golf field) and the path to follow to get there. It's not amazing, but it is a fun place to hang out if you're nearby.



I like parking at the end of 163rd street and using the tracks as a landmark. It's easily visible from the train tracks (which are active) and it's probably the best way considering that you don't have as much as a walk and you're not going to get lost if youre a first timer. The only bad part would probably be the people that live on 163rd I have no idea if they are nosy and call police or anything because ive only been there twice.

We parked there at first, but moved after we were told of the other location by a group that we met in the factory. I don't know if the locals would have called the cops, but we were close to houses.

This is a pretty cool place still. Not much in it besides the hull of the building and an old furnace type thing (not entirely sure what.)

Best place to park is behind the high school there at the nature center. You can take the nature trails back in, then cross a small field, and in you're in the woods.

A few pics of the inside. (If this is what you're talking about @ 4Valhal) I'm pretty sure that tank was some sort of fluid storage, it didn't appear to be set up to handle pressures of heated water.
