Geocache Description:

This cache is located on, and is accessed by, Pacific Power property. However, the property is open to the public during daylight hours.

Due to the fact that severe rains last November damaged the pipeline, and then earlier this year the wooden part of the pipe was removed,this cache is no longer accessible from the north (the Power Station). The cache is still accessible from the south (Copper dam), although now it is not nearly as exciting or unique, unfortunately. If you still want to try it, start at the small park by the dam. The dam is reached by taking Tucker Road south out of Hood River until you get to Orchard Road (on the left, across from Nobi's gas station). Go south on Orchard road until it makes a sharp right turn. On the left is Copper Dam road, which is mostly gravel, and should be driven slowly because of it's winding downhill nature, and the danger of hitting vehicles coming the other way. At the end of the road is a small park with a parking area. Start here.
