Over a 1000 years ago the Northern part of Hungary had already developed commerce on top of animal husbandry and agriculture. The ancient inhabitants of the area which contains the present county of Nógrád traded in salt and to guard the salt routes many forts and castles were built. On the ridge South of the village of Rimóc there are three hills. The Southernmost of these carries the name "Castle top", which is strange as there is no sign of anything resembling either a fort or a castle. It is possible that over the centuries and due to reforestation the signs of an earth fort did not survive, but the name preserved reference to its old function.
Before visiting the top of the hill for the cache I suggest you visit the nearby village of Rimóc where you can see several interesting exhibitions and museums, a lovely church and two pretty chapels at either end of the village.Rimóc also has over 60 old venacular houses which are still inhabited and well maintained. It is by one of the little chapels that you can park your car and walk 2 miles (3.2km) to find the cache on top of a lovely, forested hill, hidden under a fallen tree at a height of 318m near the highest point. The box measures 18cm x 12cm x 5cm.
En route to the cache you can see the castle of Hollókő at the distance and the pretty hills of the area mixed with fields and streams. It is delightful hiking country which seems as if time forgot.
