    The story has been around a long time. There are some facts to back it up. It all happened in the late 1800's. Robbers had a cabin at Horsethief meadows where they would hold up after jobs. Hince were the name came from. Also close by is several other camps with names like Robin hood, little John, and Sherwood. All stemming from the areas known outlaw history. Anyway in the 1920's a group was form to find the cabin and recover the stolen loot. There is information that confirms that after 2 years of searching the group did locate the cabin. There however is no mention of recovered gold. But it does verify that the cabin and loot were real. I have spoke with local residents who logged that area in the1980's. They tell of finding a musket grown into a tree and of a really run down cabin that was destroyed while logging. Now, let's hold on a bit. Was it the same cabin? That's a head scratcher. Hard to say. I did locate with my detector a metal pipe buried in a stream that was designed to feed somthing. It was located in the right area to for the cabin that the logger told me about. Still a leap to say it was the same one found in the 20's. But often cabins in those years were repaired by different people over time.
    Let me know what you turn up.

    The truth is out there.
