Forrest Fenn’s Hidden Treasure (Lost Treasure in the Rocky Mountains) ALL CLUES
Forrest Fenn has a passion for adventure and wants to share that with the world. After finding out his life would be short lived after being diagnosed with cancer, he decided to use some of his riches to bring families together, offer thrill and adventure and allow them to share the experience of a multi-state hunt for buried treasure.
He has hidden over a million dollars worth of treasure, including gold and gems, somewhere north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The treasure was hidden in 2010 and is still waiting for one lucky person, or family, to find it!
Thousands of people have headed over to the Rocky Mountains and surrounding areas in the hunt for the treasure, but no one has discovered its location. Fenn wrote two books on the treasure’s location and he claims if you put the pieces together, you will find it.
He has also been on numerous news channels since hiding the treasure and released many additional clues, but the location still remains a mystery years later. Even his wife is unaware of its location. Below we have included the original poem, the map from one of Fenn’s books, and all the clues he has released thus far.
Forrest Fenn’s Treasure Hunt poem:
“As I have gone alone in there,
And with my treasures bold,
I can keep my secret where,
And hint of riches new and old.
Begin it where warm waters halt
And take it in the canyon down,
Not far, but too far to walk.
Put in below the home of Brown.
From there it’s no place for the meek,
The end is ever drawing nigh;
There’ll be no paddle up your creek,
Just heavy loads and water high.
If you’ve been wise and found the blaze,
Look quickly down, your quest to cease,
But tarry scant with marvel gaze,
Just take the chest and go in peace.
So why is it that I must go
And leave my trove for all to seek?
The answers I already know,
I’ve done it tired, and now I’m weak.
So hear me all and listen good,
Your effort will be worth the cold.
If you are brave and in the wood
I give you title to the gold.”
Forrest Fenn’s book, The Thrill of the Chase, contains all the information one needs to find the treasure chest, you just have to put the pieces of the puzzle together and figure out the clues. The former art dealer has buried the treasure somewhere north of Santa Fe, where he lives.
All the clues to help find Forrest Feen’s Treasure:
- There’s no need digging in the old outhouses, the treasures’ not associated with any structure.
- It is not in Nevada.
- The treasure is not in a grave yard.
Forrest Fenn released this clue, but it was more than likely a way to put a stop to treasure hunters disturbing grave sites after news reports came in of people digging up protected and restricted areas.
- The treasure is higher than 5,000 feet above sea level.
- If you had the coordinates, you would be able to find the treasure.
This suggests the treasure is visible without moving anything.
- Take a flashlight and a sandwich.
- The treasure is not hidden in Idaho or Utah.
- The treasure is not in a mine.
- It is at least 8.25 miles north of Santa Fe.
- The treasure is hidden below 10,200 feet.
- It is more than 300 miles west of Toledo.
- I never said it was buried, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t.
- If I was standing where the treasure chest is, I’d see trees, I’d see mountains, and I know the treasure chest is wet.
Forrest Fenn also claims he added a clue in a book he released after The Thrill of the Chase named Too Far To Walk. The map focuses on The Rocky Mountains but there has yet to be an official confirmation from Fenn as to whether or not this is where the treasure is located. Here’s the map from Fenn’s book:
