Go underneath the rock, past it and take a right. On the right, you should see a pathway that leads you to the top of the mountain. Climb it. Go all the way to the top and then zig zag your way to the top. Then at one point, you’ll see a waterfall on your right. Go underneath the waterfall to the other side.

Just keep going straight and at the edge of the mountain, you will see a golden chest waiting for you to claim it. 

Chest #21

The 20th is also within the same vicinity, just a little further away. Stand where you can oversee the waterfall and a mushroom field. From there, you turn around to go in the opposite direction.

When you get off the big rock you’re standing on to oversee the mushroom field, underneath the rock, you should also see a small opening to the mushroom cave at the bottom. Head inside the cave and keep going straight.

Move a little to the right of the cave and continue going straight. Hug the right wall as you go. If you see the water wheel that’s dipped in the lake, that’s when you know you’re going in the right direction.
