You guys should try hunting for the Forrest Fenn Treasure again! I found some hints from the internet! Somewhere in the Rockies, in the roughly 1,000 miles between Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the Canadian border, may be the treasure! What I did while watching this video, i just searched up "Where is Forrest Fenn Treasure" I clicked on the very top website and it came up with some good results! I hope this helps!

I think they should go out again and see if there’s more info they discover and just give it another try, but try for a longer time❤️

My theory pertaining to Fenn’s statement of “I walked less than three miles” is actually a huge hint, Horowitz up in the country my brother and I use to go hiking a bunch, and one time we got a little ballsy and walked pretty far for our little feet, and realized that “oh crap now we have to walk back” so we walked a good 3 miles and then turned and walked another three miles back to the house, equalling 6 miles, so I think this hint is that in total you should only walk less than three miles, so that could mean the treasure is only within a 1.5 mile radius of where you started your hike, and that theory is further proven by the fact that an 80 year old man did it, I’m 20 years old and in fairly good shape, and I’ve hiked more than 3 miles before and it’s not for the faint of heart, which could also follow up the clue of “not for the meek” meaning that in that 3 mile round trip you’ll encounter some uneven and potentially treacherous hike within that 1.5 mile radius. So I’d say it’d be hidden with a 1.5 mile radius from where warm water halt with the home of brown to the left and possibly downstream going down the canyon. That’s just my two cents

you guys have to go back to that spot! i think you should have been looking for slashes or paint marks in the trees for the blaze! because the clues said to look down after the blaze, which means the blaze was likely on a tree, and the treasure would have been at the foot of the tree,

Out of curiosity...'the blaze" could refer to the colour the water turns into when it's going down in the waterfall. Maybe it's by the waterfall??

Thing is, Brown was capitalized at the end of a line in the poem, seeming to not be used as a word for a color or as an adjective but as a name of some kind.
