Mini-hunt 6 Clues - Get ready for an epic adventure

Reminder to view disclaimer at the top of this post:

Alright, everyone...the time is here! I hope you are sitting at a computer or a good phone, because Google maps is going to be your best friend for this one. Here we go.

The following is the treasure map you have been studying for the past few days. This is a general guideline, and the X's are not precise enough to be able to help you find the treasure. IMPORTANT: When you find the treasure, please post a picture of yourself with the treasure to our Facebook page or email it to us at so that we can make an official update to the blog. As we see each treasure found, we will mark it on this page.

For each clue below, there is a zoomed in, more accurate treasure map with X marking the spot of each treasure location. You will not only need to be able to figure out how to get to that spot, but you will need to very carefully follow the picture and clues that are associated with the treasure to find your cash. When you find a treasure or a treasure location (after the treasure has been found by someone else), be sure to take a picture of yourself and your friends at the location, because it will be worth something to you later on! More details at the end of the post. Let's dive into the clues, which are in no particular order:

Difficulty refers to how well the treasure is hidden and how hard it might be to find it with the picture and clue.
Climbing involved refers to whether or not you have to cross a stream on a log or a pipe, or possibly climb over rocks and up steep terrain.
Hiking distance refers to total distance traveled to find the treasure.
