Geocache Description:

Yet another cache hidden near one of NB's unknown natural wonders. Catherine's Cave, though very narrow and hard to enter, is actually 1000 ft long.

Go to Havelock and then go north on the Canaan Road for 2 to 3 kms. Take a right onto the Springhill Rd and go about 2.7kms.

This is a very neat cave that's not far from the road. Park near a big cedar tree and look for the ATV trail. The cave is near the cache with a stream coming out of it. Supposedly there are stalactites (spelling?) in the middle.

Go close to the cave first then head up the hill on the right to find the cache. The cache is in a tupperware spaghetti container. I believe it's full of action figures and figurines (first person to find can confirm this).

Enjoy!

PS. If you want to know how long this cave really is without actually going in it, look for two sinkholes on the north side of the road as you leave (way past the house). According to the cave map this is where the cave ends. Amazing!!!

PSS. Archie's Hole (yes, quite the name - hold the jokes please) used to be NB's most famous cave. It is also located in Havelock with an entrance at N46 00.761 W65 17.339 Supposedly a pig got lost in the entrance and was found in someones basement miles away - thought to be the other end of the cave (sounds a bit suspicious to me!) I met a family friend on the weekend who said he used to get ice from the cave to make ice cream in the summer. Unfortunately if you go to this location now it's behind a blasting line of a cement company and they don't allow people to enter it. With all of the industry on top of the cave it seems that it plugged it up and now is only about 30m long. Too bad.
