I presume you have searched & found the stack using Spotlight.
Select "Show All" in the Spotlight menu to show the found items in a
Finder window.
Then selecting any of the found files will show the full path at the
bottom of the Finder window.
You can also right-click on any item and choose "Copy...." and then
paste it somewhere visible.
