Where is the lost White Cliffs  treasure?



In Utah, there is a place known as White Cliffs in the southern part of the state. Here there are many legends but one stands out among the rest. The story begins with a prospector named George Brankerhoff that frequented Hubbell Trading Post. He told John Lorenzo Hubbell about a find of his within a cavern in the White Cliffs of Southern Utah. he explained the cliffs were intertwined with white quartz stalactites covered with gold.

The reason the story is unusual, is that George never went after the gold himself, he just told the story to Hubbell.

Hubbell was young man in 1870 and he never forgot the story. When he turned 20, he decided to look for the treasure that George had told him all about in his youth. Hubbell followed his directions, which were:
  • Go to Kanab Utah, then off to Johnson Creek, turn east to the White Cliffs.
  • Next, go along the base of the White Cliffs until you are about three miles from Deer Springs, Washington.
  • Here you will a v-shaped cleft that points down.
  • At this point, you will have to squeeze through a small opening after which you will see a small creek beneath the v-shaped entrance.
  • The space will become wider as you enter and will open into a cavernous space. Inside this cavern you will see the stalactites hanging from the ceiling.

No one has ever been able to find this lost treasure or even the v-shaped entrance. The sad ending to the story is that now the White Cliffs are part of the National Park System and treasure hunting is forbidden. This is one lost treasure that remain lost forever.
