A new clue has been revealed in the hunt for art collector Forrest Fenn's million-dollar buried treasure. The treasure hunt drew media attention last month when the millionaire appeared on the Today Show.

Yesterday, Fenn revisited Today to announce an eleventh clue to the treasure:

"No need to dig up the old outhouses, the treasure is not associated with any structure."

Fenn's goal to get Americans away from urban centers and out into the wilderness becomes clearer with each hint. According to Today, New Mexico, Fenn's home state and where many assume the treasure is buried, has had scores of new visitors in the past month.

His tenth clue stating that the treasure is hidden more than 5,000 feet above sea-level sent thousands flocking to New Mexico's peaks. Avid treasure-hunters continue to seek Fenn out for more information and even caused his website to crash just hours after the second reveal.

HuffPost shared Fenn's poem with the original nine clues in February, and Fenn revealed the tenth on the Today Show on March 1.
