Whatever it is, it’s small! So small that there is no pencil or log book. Inside however, is a paper with a one-word description of something you will see here. Drop us an email, or a “nano-gram” if you will, with the word when you claim your find.
There is no need to leave terra firma or do any climbing of any sort to grab this cache. It is perfectly acceptable however to descend the ladder and take in the workings of the dam from the steel catwalk and the cribwork piers. Exercise caution however, and keep a close eye on children in the area. Dogs MUST be on a leash and you must clean up after them. Take some time to walk around and enjoy this unique and historical location.
Upper Dam is a beautiful site located between Mooselookmeguntic and Upper Richardson Lakes. An access road leaves the S.E. side of Rt.16 at approximately N44*55.741 W070*54.580. You WILL NOT get locked in by the gate near the highway, but you will encounter a locked gate before reaching the dam. The remaining walk is a pleasant one of less than a mile. Upper dam can also be accessed via water from either lake.
