Red Hands Cave is a 400m, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.

Summary

This is a short walk down to Red Hands Cave from the Resolute Picnic Area. The walk loops from the picnic area through the heath and down to the overhang of the cave. The Aboriginal rock art is quite faded but is estimated to be over 2000 years old. This makes for an interesting historic walk great as an appetiser before a picnic lunch at Resolute Picnic Area.
