Description

Added by Chris Engelsman

A short walk to see ancient Fremont Indian pictographs.

The Cave of 100 Hands is a fascinating archeological/historical site that is easy all-ages and strollers. Over a thousand years ago, the valleys along what is now Interstate 70 near Sevier, Utah were home to the largest community of Fremont Indians ever discovered, and the Cave of 100 Hands has some exceptionally well-preserved pictographs. 

It's not clear why it's called, the Cave of 100 Hands since there are only 31 handprints made by applying pigment to their hands and pressing to the stone wall.  Also, it's not really a cave, but more of an overhang. Bars have been placed in front of the opening to keep people from vandalizing these ancient pictographs. 

The Cave of 100 Hands is located within the Fremont Indian State Park, and there is an $8 day-use fee, but the museum is free.
