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


Home:  permanent residence, an institution, the place where one lives, targeting, an end point

Old English for home:  Ham

Possible Browns:

Who is this Brown guy, and why do we put-in?...

Places named Brown:

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!

Brown House - right at the bottom of Browns Hill Road - near the banks of the Little Snake River.  Cemetary upstream (end is ever drawing nigh).

Browns Park National Wildlife Refuge - Warm Springs Cliff - Sand Canyon - Brown's Hole - Steamboat Rock (paddle?) - Canyon of Lodore (load ore?) - Hell's Canyon (death) - Echo Park Rd. (hear/listen)

Mt. Sheridan used to be Brown Mountain

Point Sublime named by Beulah Brown, right by artist point on the grand canyon

Norris Geyser has a trail which leads to the park ranger museum - Ranger Brown.  End is ever drawing nigh - could mean on the left.  could mean death.  could mean where a stream ends.  Could mean Tanatalus Creek (which does end here - and go up to the left - 'heavy loads' could be the weight over Tantalus' head)

Brown Mtn. Campground -> Kirwin (abandoned mining town - blaze on mountain right above)

Hmmm...  There is a Highway 237 (line # of odd-syllables) in Wyoming - right where it meets Highway 89 (lines 8 and 9 are put in below the home of Brown and from there it's no place for the meek)- and it just happens to be called Grover Auburn (Brown).

Brown Trout - any creek with brown trout

A location with a brown-related name

Possible Interpretations:

Other Ideas...:

The Home of Brown appears to be a very important clue.  

Forrest has said that, if you knew the House of Brown, you could walk right to the treasure.  So, it appears that WWWH is the first ‘clue’, and HoB is the second.

So, if you can locate the Home of Brown correctly, the treasure can be your’s in short order.  


Therefore, we consider the HoB to be one of the most important clues in the entire poem.
