Geocache Description:

This cache is part of the Geocaching Capital of Canada GeoTour

All you have to do is:
Find the castle
Enter the dungeon
Rescue the Fair Damsel
Claim the treasure

The “castle ruins” are actually all that’s left of the old Graphite Mine. Graphite from here was shipped to Germany to be used as a lubricant and for making pencils. The mine closed in 1915. In 1919 it was stripped of machinery and moved to the States. The fifty employees were invited to move with the Graphite Company. Many did.
On private property, this cache is placed with the owner’s permission.
There is a small parking lot at the dam on Schofield Rd. . After crossing the dam there are 2 paths leading to the cache. The gentle Tupper Trail (90m) swings to the left. A more difficult (60m) trail goes right. Please keep small children close.
