Cool shady canyon in the forest, popular for easy to moderate top rope climbing, and rappelling on broken volcanic rock. Not the most aesthetic location in the park, but closest to the car.
This is the mouth of the old Silverado Mine where in 1880 Robert Louis Stevenson honeymooned and took notes for the book "Silverado Squatters" in a cabin near the present day trailside monument which honors the site. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_S…
The overview map here shows this as a quarry, but it was actually used for mining silver and gold. Unlike most other well known mines in the area, this was a financial bust, $80,000 was made in profit, but the investment was $140,000. It closed in 1877. If you poke around in the woods nearby you'll find some old mine shafts which used to connect.
