Geocache Description:

The real cache is NOT at the title coordinates, do NOT try to search there.

This cache was created for cacher who really enjoy hiking.

To take a shower of Phytoncid, to enjoy the anion, to view the great scenery and to feel the inviolable Blessed Virgin Mary, I recommend you this trail with heartfelt.

Marian Hiking Trail is 6.7 km in length from the parking lot to St. Mary Villa, the drop height is about 850 meters, your goal is to solve five questions along the trail to the summit just like pilgrimage, then finally you can get the real coordinates, thank god.

Unboiled spring water is available in every pavilion along the trail even though in St. Mary Villa on the summit, it's a good idea to bring a tabletop cooking device to have some hot tea or coffee even noodle.
