The Treasure Hunt named “Pouncing Pumas” comes with the clue “This big cat can ford a river over 100m (328.1ft) wide…”.

This requires you to jump into the Ford Racing Puma 1999, and land a jump at the Cascadas Danger Sign that’s further than 100m / 328ft.

This danger sign can be found at the southern area of the map, and just to the west of the Horizon Wilds outpost.

Upon completing the clue, an orange circle will appear on the South-Western area of the map around a crop circle.

The Treasure Chest can be found directly in the centre of this crop circle.
