Named for the huge sandstone cavity that is the main
geologic feature of the area

On July 14, 1804, Lewis and Clark recorded that they passed a small trading post where a merchant from St. Louis traded with the Otoes and Pawnees two years previous. 

Indian Cave State Park is a real treasure for hikers, backpackers and others who like to stroll amid the beauties of nature.  The Indian Cave petroglyphs depict forms, shapes, and scenes, most of the elements of nature, mostly wildlife.

 Bear in mind, however, that the very things that make this rugged area so picturesque also require stamina in the walker. Trails range from 3/4-mile to 6 miles in length. They wind up and down hill and can be quite strenuous. Steep inclines are not uncommon. Those who are not accustomed to walking are urged to try one of the short trails first to test their abilities. Good walking shoes or hiking boots are also advised. This is a fascinating area with scenic vistas, hundreds of birds and other wildlife, and many varieties of plants that are unique in Nebraska. Indian Cave offers walkers and hikers a real opportunity to view close up some of nature's many and varied wonders.
