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.

The trail is not as long as pictured because there is a parking lot on the road closer to the cave. You don’t need to walk from the visitor center. The hike is mainly a flat walk along a barbed wire fence. The cave wasn’t anything great. The name is misleading because we only counted about 27 hands.

Interesting archeological/historical site, but not much of a hike. You are along the highway. The woman in the Visitor Center was very helpful and informative.

Hiked from the visitor center and almost missed the road crossing because I wasn't paying attention. I seen hand prints on rock but never this many.

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.
