34330. The first attraction, some 20 m below the trail, is Gabrovška jama cave, cad. nr. 378, known for beautiful concretions. It is locked, but there is no information in sight, around the entrance or on the Internet, about when and how it could be visited. The padlock is rusty and tree roots have grown around the side of the iron door grate, firmly fastening it. From the data, available on the web, the cave was opened for tourist visits in 1934 - the year is also engraved in the metal plate at the grate side. It seems the cave was not entered in years.
