Brood Cavern is a small, one-chamber cave with a small opening to the sky. The entrance is in a small stream that flows down the side of the mountain to the river below, above the fast travel point. The entrance is guarded by two or three bears. This stream is fed by two small waterfalls inside the cave. Inside, there are two chests with leveled loot, one corundum ore vein, one iron ore vein, a dead hunter, and a dead deer.
Depending on the Dragonborn's level, there could also be frostbite spiders, or trolls inside instead of bears. The cave has served as an excellent den for bears and can be a good place to collect bear claws and bear pelts for Temba Wide-Arm. There are two more bears outside the cave, the body of a dead Khajiit below the entrance.
