Directions-From Bangerter drive south on Redwood Road with Utah Lake on your left and turn west, between mile marker 8 & 7. Follow the dirt road 5.5 miles to where there's a large dirt area and turn north. This road splits a few times, but if you stay to the right, you should be fine. Drive a mile or two and cross a cattle guard, then turn immediately east. This road starts you up a hillside within 200' feet. Drive till you think your car can't go any further then park and hike to the top of the hill. The cave begins as a 15' deep hole 20' to the left of the road.

Description-According to the County Search and Rescue the cave has been blocked off after about the first 20 ft on the inside. They were having too many accidents. If you contact GORP in advance you can probably gain access to the entire cave. At the bottom of the initial hole, you experience the first tight squeeze. There could be some water there. The cave immediately opens up a bit, then slide forward another 15' feet to where you can actually stand. Then you have two choices. 1-You can drop down into the most obvious hole, you'll use the ropes and drop into a straightforward hole taking you about 200' feet below the surface. 40' feet back up from the very bottom, crawl through a fairly tight squeeze for two feet, then it grows wider again. 25' feet later, you can crawl into a hole in the ceiling and experience the "Birth Canal." At the end, make an awkward right turn (a common spot for people to get stuck) into a good size cavern. If you want to explore the side tube half way along the worm hole, do so feet first or you'll have a difficult time crawling back up backwards. If you don't drop down but turn left near the entrance, you'll find yourself in the "Maze."
