There are a ton of mines that are still open near Calico out here in southern Cali. They're not hard to get to at all, but bring a couple of flashlights and a bunch of chem lights to mark your backtrail once you go in. It's nothing like cavediving, but it's still fun.

Bodie Hills, CA
My wife ,in-laws and myself went for a very easy trail ride this weekend. We stayed in Bridgeport, CA. My father-in-law has a book of Cali trials and we decided to take one. We left out at the north end of town on the Bridgeport/Mason Rd on what was described as a 3 1/2 hour trip through some old mine areas that would eventually lead to Bodie, CA. There are a series of roads through this area of BLM land. Some graded, some not and some 4wd spurs along the way. The weather was perfect and the views were amazing. Along the way we met a group of jeeps from Selway, NV and had the typical jeepers break/BS session. They were all very friendly and we exchanged numbers for future rides. Any way this trip ended up taking 7 hours wiht a lot of stops for pics, lunch and the tour of Bodie. It was a blast.
