A waterfall in the desert. The hike to mossy cave was very easy for our kids. The windows in the rocks are very cool.

The mossy cave itself was not much to see during August but the waterfall is worth the climb. This is a very easy climb away from the crowds. We did it after a busy morning in the park. It will definitely give you some unique views.

Conveniently located trail; this is a short but interesting spot. Especially recommended for kids, waterfall won't disappoint the hikers since it's visible from far away; the rocks nearby is a nice challenge to reach for youngsters. The cove was not very mossy in mid summer, still it was nice to visit this trail.

This is outside of Bryce Canyon on the way to the town of Tropic. It is short and easy. The cave is not very impressive but the waterfall side is great. Yes you can go into the water right at the waterfall. Very refreshing after hiking all day in August!

Interesting side trip that lets you get up close and personal with Bryce Canyon's eastern edge. Mossy Cave was a bit of a disappointment due to its small size.

This is an easy hike with the river and a waterfall along the way. The cave itself is interesting, and the views are great. Stop at the waterfall and cool off in the river. Kids love it.

This was an amazing little hike on the way out of Bryce. My daughter and I hiked to the waterfall and then went up to the windows above (I don't believe that is part of the actual trail, but the route looked frequently traveled). The waterfall was larger than I had anticipated from the pictures. On the way back to... More

Way fun and an easy hike lends a beautiful view of the park below you. Very interesting. Make sure that you go if you're in the park!

Great short trail, nice stream with waterfall. Some climbing and hoodoos, nice picture opps. Cave wasn't one you walk in, just a little overhang.

A friend suggested this and said don't miss this. Sure glad she did as our family really enjoyed this short walk along a river up to a small water fall with very interesting history and important need. Won't tell you here - you will just have to go and find out for yourself! The fork in the trail will take... More
