Geocache Description:

This is the first cache in Hauho. It is hidden at one of the many forthills of Häme.
Tämä on Hauhon ensimmäinen kätkö. Se on piilotettu yhdelle Hämeen monista linnavuorista.

In the municipality of Hauho, near the villages of Sappee and Mustila there's a forthill of Hyypiö. Hyypiö translates into something like 'creep', 'oddball' or 'oddity', but the original meaning for this old Finnish word is 'Northern eagle owl' (Bubo bubo).

There are probably several ways to the area, but at least one of them is to turn to Sappee direction from the highway 12 near the parish village of Hauho. After couple of kilometers there's a junction to Mustila, and when you take that road, there's a sign of 'Hyypiön linnavuori' to the left quite soon. From that point you have to continue on foot.

The cache is somewhere at the magnificent cliffs of the forthill.

Hauhon kunnassa, lähellä Sappeen ja Mustilan kyliä, sijaitsee Hyypiön linnavuori. Sana 'hyypiö' tarkoittaa alkujaan huuhkajaa (Bubo bubo).

Paikalle on luultavasti useampiakin reittejä, mutta ainakin yksi niistä on kääntyä Sappeen suuntaan valtatie 12:lta lähellä Hauhon kirkonkylää.Muutaman kilometrin päässä on Mustilan tienristeys, ja sitä tietä ajaessa löytyy hetken kuluttua vasemmalla Hyypiön linnavuoren viitta. Tästä eteenpäin on jatkettava jalan.

Kätkö on jossain linnavuoren jylhillä kallioilla.
