You walk up the steep muddy path.
The woods are thicker here and the path harder to walk. But you make your way to the top of a steep muddy path, there is a prominent tree nearby with a large X and an arrow pointing downwards carved upon it. It might be worth searching the base of the tree.
To the southeast the path is muddy and goes downhill.
You search at the base of the tree and you find a treasure chest!
