Best view of Lake Zumbro by a damsite! Will need to approach via water, either above or below the dam. If above, try mooring your craft near N44 12.755, W092 28.658. There is no direct, land based access without trespassing. The cache container is a padlocked ammo box, combination is 24-38-16
Steep, rocky, short trail, with some poison ivy. Trail at lake shore has recently been cleared, for easy access. Cache is located within 4 feet of trail, no need to bushwack! You may be able to canoe/tube/raft across, below the dam (Macs Park Place). Do this only when there are low river flows. You can find river flows at my personal website. If lake level is above 920.5, then DON'T GO!!!
The portage trail from below the dam has been cleared, as well. You may wish to follow the lower path down to the dam face. You can launch your craft at a number of places on Lake Zumbro, including a public DNR ramp (near Ponderosa/Grandpa Eds) directly across from the cache site, near N44° 12.674' W92° 28.943' This cache is rated 5 due to the rule that states a boat is required for access. However, it is definitely worth the trip, if only for the view! Cache is an ammo can.
