Short but steep

We hiked this short trail with our 10, 7 & 3 year old. The trail is pretty steep & you slide a lot when coming down. There really wasn't a waterfall when we went but the views at... read more

There really wasn't much moss to see. It is a good little hike but unfortunately it looks like it has dried up.

The walk/hike to the cave is very pretty, easy until the end (sort of steep, but not dangerous), and worth seeing. But the cave itself in April was just a cave with some wet rocks. But it's still worth the walk, even if you stop at the steep part and don't go to the cave itself. Very photogenic along the... More

We hiked this short trail with our 10, 7 & 3 year old. The trail is pretty steep & you slide a lot when coming down. There really wasn't a waterfall when we went but the views at the top are breath taking. A nice taste of the views you'll get to see in bryce cannon.

This is a well frequented and short easy walk with some great views of the hoodoos and several natural arches on the skyline. The cave itself is basically just a depression in the side of the hill. There are some photos on the information board that show the dripping water frozen into some massive icicles. The cave is probably much... More

Nice short hike in Bryce Canyon. You can get up close to the water fall. The cave has been closed off but still can view it from a distance.

We saw the sign as we drove towards Mount Zion from Bryce. It is a short walk that gave us a leg stretch and a break from mind-numbing straight roads. There are useful information boards explaining the history of the area and the trail and bridges are well maintained. A pleasant short break for our journey

Lovely walk up the hill to the Cave turn left for the cave and right for the waterfall, both are beautiful in there own right and the scenery around is also spectacular, not a hard climb both me and the wife found it a nice relaxing walk with still specks of snow on the ground from the winter spell lovely...

This trail is extremely short but very pretty. The cave is not much of a cave and there is a very small waterfall but it is a great short stop on your way from Bryce to eastern Utah or if you can't do longer hikes it gives you a taste of the hoodoos. We went at dusk and the colors... More

We 'fell over' this small walk. I'm so glad we found it. Stunning amble, little bridges, wild flowers and a little waterfall. If your not up to a 'hike' of any sorts but want to see beautiful scenery, this is for you. Just lovely.

We came for Valentine's day to enjoy the unusual warm winter weather(40-63 degrees). This is a great taste of Bryce Canyon without having to pay the $25 entrance fee to the park. The trail head is very close to the town of Tropic just outside of Bryce. The trail starts out fairly flat and follows a river the entire time.... More
