This short walk will take you to a cave that is an unforgettable part of the experience of visiting Clear Creek Canyon. Fremont Indian State Park is located along I-70 in central Utah. Admission to the park is $6 per vehicle. Camping is available at Castle Rock Campground. Before you take this hike, be sure to stop at the visitor center/museum to learn a little bit of the history of the Fremont Indians. The information for this guide was taken from a trail guide packet that is available at the visitor center. It may be borrowed for free or purchased for $2. The trail has two starting locations. The first is from the southeast corner of the visitor center parking lot. The second is from a pullout on Clear Creek Canyon Rd. The trail takes you to a 23 feet wide by 7 feet high by 10 feet deep rock shelter that has 31 hand prints and other pictographs on the walls.

Very easy, very fast trail. My kids loved the cave and the lizard we saw on our way there.

It is an Indian cave. I used to hike to this as a kid. They had to put up bars at the opening of the small cave to prevent vandals from ruining the hind prints.
Nice hike for kids and not dangerous at all. Worth seeing.

Great little trail for the kids. There are not 100 hand prints... :( it's more like the Cave of 10 hands and some really faded not sure it's Indian Cave... :)

I like this hike. This short stroll is well worth the time and effort to see this amazing cave. The color, still easily discernible, of each hand print is stunning.
