    Iron Door - Malad Idaho

    Hello All,

    I'm researching a topic for a magazine article about the "Iron Door," which is a local legend around the area of Malad, Idaho. (Here's a link for those who've never heard of it: http://www.maladidaho.org/irondoor.htm )

    Has anyone heard of it? If so, I'd like to hear what you've heard.

    Has anyone actually gone hunting for it? If so, I'd like to hear about your experience(s).

    Thanks so much.

    I know of the story and looked for it about 30yrs ago as a kid. I was real excited about the whole story. What I was really interested in was, if we found the Iron Door and opened it, the fact of finding a couple of dead robbers and hopefully their guns.

    I've found a few links to the story within the last 2yrs and know there are a few different versions, here are two.

    Re: Iron Door - Malad Idaho

    i have relatives that live there and i have head a few stories about it but the most thing that every story had similar was the fact that when the people found it, they would mark their course or try to and the iron doors apparently move!!!! like they will be in one spot then another!! i don't know if this is true or not!!! but i also have been told that you need cutting torches to get into these iron doors!! i think a couple of people have found them while deer hunting and they could not get into the doors!! but i have heard alot about it!!! i am going to be going there this summer maybe to look around!!! later

    Sounds a lot like Belle Starr's lost iron door treasure in Oklahoma. I read about it in W.C. Jameson's "Lost Treasures of American History" 2006, Taylor Trade Publishing, Lanham, MD.

    Yup...sounds like the Iron Door Legend in the Wichita Mtns in Oklahoma...I was planning to go there in March with my Dad..after researching all the leads from Thomas Perry's Treasure Atlas and mapping with topo program I finally got it down to a one mile area where it could be... Then I found out that the Wichita Mtns is a "National Wildlife Area"...in Big Bold Letters on their website they state..No Treasure Hunting, No Metal Detectors allowed...I wonder why in places that are full of treasure stories, outlaw hideouts, etc..the government decides to make the whole "mountain area" a refuge?

    Well, you could still go hiking in the area and take along your binocs and cameras (with telephoto lenses) to photograph the wildlife. If you actually managed to find a "treasure", then you could figure out your next steps. At the least, if your photos are good, you could sell them to nature magazines.... ;)

    Anyone want to plan a trip to look for this. Is it on private land where we would have to contact the owners?.

    I've read of the Malad story before, but never searched for it. I've done some fishing at a little lake called Samaria Res. south of Malad. Would be fun to try and find the treasure. It's nice country to hike around in.

    I have a drone with a 3 mile range. My thought was to check the area with that first. I live on the coast in Washington but have wanted to make a trip over there to search for this one.
