Here’s where Oregon Hidden Bottle Hunt bottles were found

All the bottles in the 2022 Oregon Hidden Bottle Hunt have been found.

Six commemorative bottles were hidden around the state of Oregon to celebrate more than a half-century of Oregon’s Bottle Bill. Each bottle were placed in parks and trails throughout the state.

The hunt was divided into six geographical zones. Deschutes, Jefferson, Crook and Harney counties are in Zone 4. Klamath, Lake, Josephine and Jackson counties are in Zone 3. Eastern Oregon is in Zone 5. Southwest Oregon is in Zone 2 while Zone 1 has been split into an east and west region covering Portland and Northwest Oregon.

The finders get to keep the bottles and will get to choose one of the 5,000 BottleDrop Give nonprofit partners to receive a $1,000 donation.

Here are the clues for each zone and where the bottles were discovered:

Zone 1W Clues

DAY 1

Welcome to the treasure hunt’s second year!
A quest for hidden bottles on the Oregon frontier.
This scenic path divides region 1E in two,
Its mother was kindred spirit to Maud,
and Clarke’s predecessor, too.
To find the treasure from this skyline track,
Be a dear, sugar –
Keep this wild, wild country to your back.

DAY 2

These acclaimed few call this institute alma mater –
A tech inventor who was a bottle bill early adopter,
Quirky Barry, who was later a doctor,
A gourmand and prolific cookbook author.
Make a line east and west from this reactionary place
And stay south to win the hidden bottle race.

DAY 3

On fur trade wealth they had a tight grip,
But they had bad luck with sinking ships.
The first was scuttled, an explosive scene,
The second encountered the pleistocene.
Now name a metro trail that is 5 of 22 miles complete,
And these three places remain to compete.

DAY 4

We don’t talk about Bruno (no, no, no!)
But he was the star of Walt’s Hollywood show.
Head to this smart town, former site of Tektronix,
Where you can find your redemption at # 5-1-6.

Once interned at Topaz,
Robert’s canvas was water and stone.
Three works are in this town,
But one must be left alone.

DAY 5

Gus’s nut grove is now a park,
Where kids can play and canines bark.
Sluggers have five spaces to bat,
But cable trees are where it’s at.
Steer your raft clear of Oregon’s state tree
A search near the populus trichocarpa is key!

Zone 2 Clues

DAY 1

Betty, Tom and Paul were able to get it approved
But where did a quarter of the coin come from?
If you solve this brain twister, good for you
North of that spot lies a good outcome.

DAY 2

For twenty days a behemoth
Stretching from Wonderland to the shore
Now it’s just well above average
Upon these grounds someone will score.

DAY 3

Gabby and Abby should be there
Seb will be there for sure
He’ll send people to the waterfall
But only those who truly endure.

DAY 4

The bottle’s hidden in a prime location
To reward your dedication
If you want this hunt to deliver
Go to this park with a creek, not a river

DAY 5

This fella didn’t go extinct
When all around him went away
Keep a safe following distance
It’s the line of least resistance
Take a seat and call it a day.

BONUS

Look east of the creek
In the home of warrior Greeks
Just on the other side of Ma-Lik.
A bench, it’s not so chic
But near a bush you should seek
This should your interest pique.

Zone 2 Location

Amazon Park

These commemorative bottles celebrating Oregon’s bottle redemption bill will be placed throughout parks and trails in Oregon.

Zone 3 Clues

DAY 1

The day is here, the time has come
Crack the clues, and you’ll have won
I’ll tell you now the bottle’s not on the playa
It’s hidden in a county named after aging carya

DAY 2

The county is vast so let’s narrow in
It’s tempting to say Gold Hill is where to begin
But for this hunt you should search somewhere south of center
This place wouldn’t exist without the help of a mentor

DAY 3

Does the hunt have you watching Caliban and Desdemona?
You might try looking closer to where Oregon hits California
Nobody said it would be easy to find the bottle
But you sure aren’t going to get any help from Othello

“Klaatu barada nikto” might ease your labor
But the words would surely get jumbled by a friendly neighbor

DAY 4

It’s true that Medford stole this city’s seat
But later they struck a deal that was pretty sweet

Scenic woodlands surround –
But the treasure’s on the least “appreciated” property around
Don’t surmise that’s because it’s got a vice
It was sold by a guy so nice they named him twice

Find the story about a young kid’s gall
Leading to a trail that reminds us of John Paul

So step, stride, stroll your way
Trek, trudge, traipse all day
Just when you think you’re too tired to continue the quest
Your search will put you on a loop, near a peaceful place to rest

Zone 3 Location

Quarry Trail near the Jacksonville Cemetery

Zone 4 Clues

DAY 1

Reduce the field down to two
To find Zone 4’s hidden bounty

Seek Seek Qua-t you want to,
But not in this namesake county

Don’t get stuck in a porcine battle
Cut Mad Bear’s county that’s replete with cattle

DAY 2

You’re one step closer to mining the gold
This county’s Aunt took them in from the cold
She charmed Sourdough with stylish flair
Last wishes fulfilled by Abigail’s heir
This hunt impels you to use your wit –
Come on now, Yukon do it!

DAY 3

The Depression hit, and finances dried up
This town looked for a way to keep its chin up.
Dutch floated a grand plan to bring in the masses
An event that hailed the town’s finest lasses.
Queen reigned supreme, court on cygnet dreams,
Designs and arches each year surpasses.

DAY 4

Moira’s Johnny is no appleseed
Butlers and pilots for every need
Apples don’t grow in this district anymore
But Johnny would be at home in this store
The very last one on earth of its kind –
A place where time and technology can rewind!

DAY 5

Travel the lane to a former timber ranch homestead,
Where crops were shared and dairy cows bred.

A life began in an atomic blast
Peaceful cultivation will help it last.

Your spirits won’t be dragging –
Lily’s shed helps with the conceal

Keep those tongues from wagon –
This treasure is for wheel!

Zone 4 Location

Zone 5 Clues

DAY 1

If numbers aren’t you’re thing,
you may want to further consider 21’s meaning.
However, be sure to stay clear of a Victorian’s fling,
with an 18-years-old mayor leading.

DAY 2

Our treasure is sure to be highly sought after,
but if this game is to be your fun,
search between the state’s deadliest natural disaster,
and the ancient one.

DAY 3

“More Hints” and you may celebrate!
Archie’s story was left unfinished,
yet agriculture caused this place to inflate,
to become the largest and leave his legacy undiminished.

Zone 5 Location

Riverfront Park in Hermiston, in a culvert under the walking path.
