Stump Grinding

Ahoy Treasure Hunters

We are happy to announce our 1st ever

York County Holiday Treasure Hunt



Congratulations to Heather & Jeremy Reinhardt from Mt.

 Wolf who found the treasure chest at Rocky Ridge Park.


I'm in a place of outdoor fun,
A lot of trees and a little sun.

When you get there park your car,
Then take a walk, it's not too far.

You'll hear a buzz but not from bees,
Just keep going and a "BEE" you'll see.

Feeling "Lucky" take a rest,
Very near you'll find the chest.

It's not up high or underground,
But in a stump it can be found.

A treasure hunt is it not?
The legend says X MARKS THE SPOT !!!

The riddle explained.

It was at a public park with a lot of woods.

It was about a 7 minute walk back the trail with the white rectangles that begins near the parking area.

There are high voltage power lines that run through the park and you can hear them buzzing.

The "Lucky" and "Bee" clues are referring to the "LUCKY LUCY BEE" memorial bench.

It was hidden in a nearby stump.

There were two wooden X's that marked the spot.

Due to the recent snowfall, the new date will be Saturday December 26th, 2020.

This is meant to be a fun family event. Hopefully giving people some happy memories (to end a not so great year). 

It is not meant to be a serious competition so please respect others while playing. 


We have hidden a treasure chest somewhere in York County.

On Saturday December 26, at noon** we will release a clue on this page and on our Facebook page, leading to the    location of the hidden treasure.

There will be a phone number and secret code inside.

The finder must then call the number and provide us with the code and the exact location where they found it.

Once verified that this is the correct information, we will make arrangements with the finder to collect their $250 prize.
