Little Hustan Cave is part of Little Hustan Lake Cave Regional Park. It is located very close to the gravel road to Zebalos. A short walking trail leads to a viewing platform looking down at the river and a rock bridge. This is Atluck canyon, where the Atluck creek runs, connecting Atluck lake with Anutz lake. There is a huge cave portal which may be entered self guided. We recommend cautions and if possible caving equipment. Good torches, appropriate shoes, helmet, and gloves are advisable. Little Hustan Cave is said to be one of the most accessible cave on Vancouver Island.
