Geocache Description:

Located along Pipeline from Spruce Hill Lake to Chain Lakes
some areas may be tricky when wet

"A walk into Spruce Hill Lake from Old Sambro Road in Harrietsfield[ parking N44 35.092 W063 38.532]is a
pleasant experience any time, but it is particularly beautiful in the fall
of the year. You will be taken back in time as you explore the northeastern
shoreline which was fortified with rock walls by local stone cutters and
labourers in 1868. The main dam, built at the same time, is still intact,
with a sluice gate that was opened and closed by the caretaker. This dam, an
earthen structure, is 1200 feet long and 12 feet wide on top, with 16 inch
granite blocks on the inner and outer slopes. The gatehouse, was built in
1889 of brick, concrete and granite. Its walls were 4 feet thick.
Unfortunately the gatehouse no longer exists. A pipeline, now in disrepair,
is used by hikers as a walking trail from the dam to the head of Long Lake
on St. Margaret's Bay Road. An abandoned hoist, used by those 19th century
workers to lay the large pipes, is still standing upright in a wooded area
along the pipeline trail.".... Iris Shea a descendant of first settlers
