Hints & Clues to Help You Find Forrest Fenn’s Treasure!


Forrest Fenn’s treasure poem has six stanzas and nine clues.  

The 4th stanza:

The fourth stanza contains four commas and one period, making for one single sentence.

Only two other stanzas are comprised of a single sentence (1 & 3).

If you’ve been wise and found the blaze, look...

The final few stanzas are believed to give you the fine-detail which will allow your to pin-point the treasure-chest once you’ve arrived at the final-location (you’ve been wise and found the blaze).  So, all of the clues in this stanza might refer to things that you could only recognize with ‘boots on the ground’ at the final location, in person.

That means that all of the study in the world isn’t going to help you.  Maps aren’t going to help you.  Satellite images aren’t going to help you.

But, of course, that’s all supposition and you can’t possibly ignore half of the poem, as there’s probably a clue or two in there that you need beforehand.

Some time in the middle of 2010, wealthy author/collector/archaeologist Forrest Fenn hid a medieval chest filled with gold coins and other valuable artefacts somewhere in the Rocky Mountains for anyone to go and retrieve.  He wrote a book called ‘The Thrill of the Chase’, in which he hid clues to help people find the treasure.

Inside the book is a poem which secretly encodes the whereabouts of this treasure chest.  If you can solve the puzzle, you can go and collect hundreds of thousands of dollars (if not well over a million) right now!

But, hold your horses!  It’s not that easy.  Thousands upon thousands of people have tried - with absolutely no luck whatsoever!

Fortunately for you, we’re here to help guide you right to Fenn’s gold!


It appears that at least 3 people have now died while searching for the Fenn Treasure!

Make sure you follow all safety precautions - and remember that an elderly man hid the treasure, you won’t need to go anywhere that’s that dangerous!

Other Ideas...:

Right up there with Stanza 3 as the 2nd most important stanza in the entire poem.
