Where is the gold?

From Jackson’s letter of 1904:
From the head of Pitt Lake and not more than 20 miles in a north westerly direction to the hidden treasure but there is no trail and nothing to guide you except that when you get within a few miles of the place you will see on a lower ridge three sharp peaks, each some 50 or 100 ft high as you face these the hidden treasure is below and to the right of these peaks. 
That is right within the area of Coquitlam Search and Rescue following the direction of the upper Pitt River.
