Geocache Description:

Your way to the cache on the Massingsattel isn't boring at all. There are lots of things to see; a stream, an Alpine hut, a forest, a little swamp, and nice views of the surrounding mountains. Enjoy your search.


This cache was placed by Team Tour de Austria to release the travel bug "Sharona" (TB9A4C).

The hike will take about 1.5 to 2 hours.

Park your car in the village of Hinterthal and walk to the starting coordinates. There you see an apartment building. How many garage doors has the building?
If it's 6 then go to the coordinates N 47° 24.850 E 12° 58.894
If it's 7 then go to the coordinates N 47° 24.684 E 12° 58.722
If it's 8 then go to the coordinates N 47° 24.405 E 12° 57.944

You will see several metal signs. Where does the blue route lead to?
If it's Hinterthal go to the coordinates N 47° 25.342 E 12° 57.310
If it's Massingsattel go to the coordinates N 47° 25.951 E 12° 57.151
If it's Jufen go to the coordinates N 47° 23.827 E 12° 56.501

On the bench you can enjoy the view, it's very quiet and relaxed. Behind the bench you see the edge of the forest, there you will find a big tree with red/white stripes (indication hiking route). I which orientation are the stripes painted?
If it's horizontal go to the coordinates N 47° 24.991 E 12° 57.739
If it's horizontal and vertical go to the coordinates N 47° 25.312 E 12° 57.202
If it's vertical go to the coordinates N 47° 25.865 E 12° 58.614

This is the final location where the cache is hidden. Please beware of the very wet area (swamp) between the trail and the location of the cache. You need to walk around the swamp a bit. Happy hunting!
