Geocache Description:

Einfache Wanderung zu einem einsamen Platz am Rande von Österreichs grössten Urwaldgebiets

Easy hike to a very remote place at the edge of Austria's largest pristine forest area.


Die Anfahrt zum Startpunkt ist schon Teil des Abenteuers. Enge, recht abenteuerliche Strassen führen durch eine enge, recht abenteuerliche Landschaft.

In Wildalpen vor der Kirche zum AV-Campingplatz abzweigen und den Alpentour-Schildern bis ins Imbachtal folgen (hierher gelangt man auch von Fachwerk aus). Danach immer der Strasse nach Richtung Startpunkt (lohnend auch für Mountainbikes) folgen. Die letzten paar Kilometer folgt man einer Sandstrasse.

Parke bei
N 47° 44.458
E 15° 03.345

Folgt der Sandstraße bis über die Weide, knapp bevor es wieder in den Wald geht links hinauf zu einem Forsthaus. Hinter dem Stahltor das die Forststraße versperrt geht die Tour los.
Der Cache befindet sich bei
N 47° 45.453
E 15° 05.215

Der Cache ist am Ende einer Forststrasse versteckt. Abenteuerliche Naturen können hier den Bach überqueren und den Talschluss weiter erkunden.
Länge: ~4 km roundtrip
Terrain: Forststrassen

The drive to the starting point is part of the adventure. Narrow, quite adventurous roads lead through a narrow, quite adveturous landscape.

In Wildalpen, take the brnach of the street which leads to the AV-Campground (in front of the church) and follow the 'Alpentour'-Signs into the Imbachtal. You can reach this point from Fachwerk as well. Now just follow the road until you reach the starting coordinates. The last few kilometers are a sandroad.

Park at
N 47° 44.458
E 15° 03.345

Follow the logging road across the meadow and turn left before the road enters the forest again. The actual tour starts behind the steel-gate that blocks the logging-road.
The cache is hidden at
N 47° 45.453
E 15° 05.215

The cache is hidden right at the end of a logging-road. Crossing the creak and exploring the upper part of the valley is definatly rewarding.
Length: ~4 km roundtrip
Terrain: Logging-roads
