This cache has been archived.

Fababoo: I went to check up and they have a new sign around the corner from the old but with different info. Also, indeed, the final is missing. I think it's time to get some new caches in here as this is such a great area so I'm archiving this one to make room. Thanks to all that visited and look forward to some new caches in here in the near future.

Geocache Description:

This Multi-Cache is approximately 7.7km round trip on a packed soggy trail.(During this time of year!!!)
The above co-ordinates will take you to the parking area, and to the start point. This is a nice trail that the whole family can do.

This Multi-Cache will take you through the 68.3-hectare site. This area has remnants of a “Ghost” Canal System that was built and abandoned in the 1900’s –without ever having been used. The reservoir was constructed to connect the Trent Canal System. At that time water transportation was cheaper than rail service. The system was 85% complete when a change to the Federal Government stopped the completion in 1911.
