Not Eisenhower, but readjusted, a 5 and a 3
O.K. now a 4 and a 2 then 0
Three you should see
Even before you're the hero.
Explanation:
Re-adjust 5 and 3 to 35, but not Hwy 35 (the Eisenhower Interstate system), County Rd 35 (Upper Afton Rd). Re-adjust 4 and 2 to 24 then add 0 to get the address 240 on the only mailbox on Battle Creek Entrance Rd , the three you would see before driving into this part of the park. You could also see three picnic tables from the hiding spot. Note- this clue tells you what park, which part of the park, and narrows the hiding spot if you figure it out.

This one is more than a two-stepper
I do mean this from the heart
So find a man as funny as himself
To get an early smart start.

Our coin has been out there
Since the beginning of time it seems
It's been out there so long
It's haunting my dreams.
Explanation:
The coin was hidden a little more than 2 steps away from the heart of the tree. Bill Cosby (B.C.) starred in the comedy "Himself". Smart Start is a cereal made by Kellogg, whose headquarters is in Battle Creek, MI. The beginning of time=B.C.

Before we put you in
Another kind of mental trance
This should help you find your road
Learn phonetics to advance.

Keep in view the running stream
Remember Snow, Wizardry and Magic
Elements to button up it seems
Knowing not this park is tragic .
Explanation:
Phonetically spelled Batl Krek in the first letters of each line, also put in trance road at the end of the first few lines to give you Battle Creek Entrance Road. Wizardry Magic and Snow were the themes of winter carnival buttons 3 years (57, 70, 95) it was at Battle Creek.

Without trouble think of how
I will ease your mind
Grass, woods and walkways, Pow!
And a hard 1 of a kind.

Marleys 1st name and a short comedian
Combined to make a transportation show star
All these you can see from the brown meridian
And from the treasure one near, one far.

From the treasures eye
Seen is water on high
And another that falls
Near holes in the walls.

If zone 1 was evil
And zone 2 was a fake
4 and 5 bring your advil
well its zone 3 for criminey sake!
Explanation:
he second line is from the song "A Bridge Over Troubled Water" referring to the bridge near the treasure site, and "troubled water" refers again to "Battle Creek". There is grass woods and walkways in the area. Pow! Was a Batman reference to suggest the caves, and a hard one of a kind is the missing plaque nearby. Steve is Marley's first name, and Martin Short the short comedian, combined to make Steve Martin- star of "Planes Trains and Automobiles".

Battle Creek is the park
If you're still in the dark
Go now and you will see.

In the lot park your car
Cross the bridge not too far
By the creek is a lonely tree.

Search down to the right
While keeping in sight
Picnic tables that number three.

Inside a black hockey puck
Our coin is securely stuck
In a hole covered by compost debris.
Explanation:
Pinpoints the puck.
