Needle in a Haystack
Traverse the Enola Low-Grade Trail until you find the location shown in the image below.
Standing in the spot where the picture was taken. Turn to your 8 o’clock position and walk until you find the hole above eye level in the wall of this small valley.
Look inside the hole to claim your reward.
If you can complete the Uncharted Lancaster: Enola Low-Grade Adventure, you will be rewarded with one of the 882 coins of cursed Aztec Gold. The Aztec Empire delivered a stone chest with 882 pieces of Aztec gold to Hernán Cortés in an attempt to stop the slaughter of their people.
But in his greed, Cortés refused to halt his conquest. In response, the heathen gods placed a curse upon the gold, so that any mortal who removed a single coin from the chest would be punished for eternity. The only way to lift the curse was to return all the Aztec gold pieces to the chest and pay the heathen gods back in blood.
So, it goes without saying, remove at your own risk.
