On Your Mark…Get Set…Go! The Treasure Hunt Is On In The Santa Cruz Mountains For $1000!

It’s game on in the Santa Cruz Mountains!

Somewhere, hidden in the mountains, is $1,000!

The Instagram account, “The Official Treasure Hunt”, showed up this week with clues for the whereabouts of the treasure.

The account posted a message saying, “We wanted to do something fun to encourage everyone to get outside and explore our public parks and land! Gather some friends and find your treasure!”

All that is known at this time is that cash is hidden in a box, supposedly on public land.

“What we’re going to do is post clues on our Instagram, @TheOfficialTreasureHunt, so follow us there,” said Co-founder Brendan Ruh. “You’ll get clues leading you in the general area where the box is hidden. So you can get closer and closer. Follow for weekly updates. It’s publicly accessible, it’s easy to access and it’s not in any dangerous spot. Anybody can find it.”

While it’s fun and exciting, just remember to look out for cliffs and such.
