Indian Cave state park is a major must see when in Nebraska. With 20 miles or more of hiking/ bike trails, and an area to bring your horse to ride, or you could even rent a horse for a guided tour, adventure seems to be around every corner. If Wildlife viewing suits your fancy, there are wild turkeys, Deer, Hummingbirds, eagles, cranes, and other types of wildlife to be seen. I think you may even catch a glimpse or two of a wild child. They frequently have living history programs for the visitor to the park. Indian cave state park is at the site of a long forgotten fur trappers settlement. You may stroll among the headstones at the two historic cemeteries inside the park, or take a lesson or two from the Blacksmith at the log cabin. If broom making sounds interesting take a shot at it when you stop by the general store.The park rangers are knowledgeable and very very friendly, always willing to help point you in the right direction. If heights don't bother you take a walk out the boardwalk to the viewing deck and catch a glimpse of the breathtaking views of the Missouri River Basin from atop the trees. After you are done taking a gander at the river, head on down to the Indian cave at the far end of the park where you will find a stair way that leads you to the cave. Inside the Cave you will have the chance to search for petroglyphs carved into the walls. Farther up the stair case is a chimney, that historians believe the Indians used for cooking their food. It truly is a must see. Make sure you check out the museum inside the park. And try your hand at camping in the park. Bring a hummingbird feeder to help attract the already plentiful hummingbirds into your camp.If camping isn't your thing, you can always stay in a hotel in nearby Fall City, Nebraska.Make sure you check this one out!
