Treasure hunting is a great way to earn some extra gold in Red Dead Redemption 2 and this guide will walk you through the Poisonous Trail treasure maps.
Where to Find the Poisonous Trail Treasure Map
The first map of the Poisonous Trail treasure map sets can be found inside the Cairn Lodge on the south-east corner of Cairn Lake. You will find it inside one of the chests inside the lodge.
The first map points you in the direction of Face Rock just north of Rhodes. Head to the large rock formation that resembles a face, and look for a broken off tree on the south-east side of the rocks. There are several of these in the area, so check the image below and look for the “Search” action prompt to appear when you’re at the correct tree. Inside, you will find The Poisonous Trail Map 2.

The clues in the second Poisonous Trail map point towards a unique set of stones in a field just west of Van Horn Trading Post.
Looks for the pavement like rocks with a hole in the center and pull out The Poisonous Trail Map 3.

The final part of the Poisonous Trail maps takes place inside a cave behind the waterfall pictured in The Poisonous Trail Map 3. This waterfall is located at the north end of the Elysian Pool.
Once you’ve stepped behind the waterfall, you’ll find a cave system that is both confusing and deadly. To help you navigate it safely and reach the treasure, we’ve created this short video showing you a safe path to the gold bars you crave.
Don’t forget to sell those gold bars to a Fence for a total of $2,000.
