How Geocaching Works

This is a fairly easy cache by the Tour de Austria team. It is a nice little hike of about 2 km and if you continue following the trail (not necessary) it will be about 5 km.
This cache was placed to release the travel bug "Anna the Ape" (TB9F29) into the wide world. That's why this cache is one of the easiest yet.
The hike isn't long, but it takes you to a beautiful area, well worth visiting.
