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.
