A mere 20 minutes from the turn off from Westside Rd, this abandoned gold mine is a hidden gem on Blue Grouse Mountain. While the entire adventure is pretty short as the cave network only has two forks, expect hallway-style width and height corridors, and also 0.5ft-1ft deep water for the first 50 feet or so of the cave. Bring rainboots if you have them.
While technically it's possible to 4x4 right to the cave entrance, most cars (including a Subaru BRZ) can make it to the turn off where the forest service road turns right into a 4x4ing right. That will leave you a mere 228 meter descent, and 45 meters of elevation, from the cave entrance.
