I attempted to go to this claim a couple years ago with my kids. I actually found a spur off of nf 29 that takes you down near river level. There is a nice camping spot at the end of the road and a good trail that leads to "mother's nightmare" claim. The signage states that it is a GPAA claim but its nowhere in the mining guide...??? strange. We found a few flakes near the river and saw a good sized deep hole someone had dug way up dry. Unfortunately between the heat and the horseflys my crew didn't last long. Hoping to go back.

The driving directions are correct. If you add a photo it will be upside down!!!!

From Randle WA, take South 131. Then follow the signs that lead to Cispus Learning Center. About 1/2 mile after crossing the Cispus river, about a mile before the CLC there is a bridge over Yellow Jacket Creek.
There is parking for 4 to 5 vehicles near the bridge. The claim access is pretty easy from here, just hike along the waterline to the SE until you find a likely spot. The printed guide recommends turning up USFS #29, but then there is a tough descent from that parking area to access the creek. And a tougher climb to get back to your vehicle.
