We would have missed this had we stayed near the Bryce Canyon entrance. An easy hike along a small stream. Very nice waterfall near the end of the hike.

The Mossy Cave trail hike was great. The morning sun really highlights the wonderful red, orange, yellow and grey rock formations. The sounds of rushing water and wind through the pines is soothing. And the pine-scented smell of the air is wonderful. This is a short hike with a very high "smile per mile" ratio.

This is the perfect activity for young kids. Not overly steep nor overly long, but the kids will feel like they really accomplished quite a feat as they venture back into the canyon to see the mossy cave and the waterfall. We were there in the middle of the day, and it wasn't too hot. But you should always take... More

It's not part of the main park complex - you have to drive a little bit out of the way (scenic drive, by the way) to get there, but boy is it worth it! From the roadside trailhead, you start over a low hill and are immediately rewarded with a trail that runs along a creek almost all the way... More

This is a fairly short, fairly easy hike with some very nice scenery. The "mossy cave" is somewhat less than what one might have anticipated; so keep your expectations in check, and enjoy the walk.

Great hike short hike that allows unlimited access to creek and waterfall hole. The hike itself is short but one can linger in the water as long as you like.

This is pretty little area but I expected something a bit more. The cave is not a cave at all, it's just an overhang with some moss growing and it's fenced off. Not much too look at.

The cave is ok to see. After or before you can take the split trail to the top of the waterfall which is easily seen. We took off our hiking boots and soaked our hot feet for a while which was therapeutic on the hot day. Some others went below and soaked in the water below the falls which looked... More

Short easy hike in the canyon to hidden waterfall. Great for kids of all ages, or those woh can not hike far. Can access bottom of waterfall, and walk behind it for awesome experience. Like this better than the view points in Bryce.

This trail is a gravel path just off Hwy 12. The trail eventually follows a fast flowing stream created by early settlers who dug a channel to divert water from the East Fork Sevier River. The water is fast moving but shallow (less than 6 inches deep). After passing a couple of walking bridges you will reach an area with... More
