Saw this on the map and decided to call. A lovely walk up to the Frozen waterfall, very unusual and worth the walk up there.

This is a quiet area of Bryce away from the main canyon area and just off Highway 12 to the east of the park. The walk is wonderful as you make your way alongside a stream bed and over a bridge with the big red rock spires looking down on you, but the cave, which is not accessable, is dissapointing.... More

We hiked the trail in the late afternoon and found it to be quite enjoyable along a pretty little stream with the most amazing pink rocks in and along the stream. At the end of the trail the left fork leads to Mossy Cave which was very disappointing; just a cave with moss. The right fork is where the views... More

Unfortunately, the trail right up to the waterfall was closed, hence only three stars from me! The mossy cave itself was terribly disappointing; there' s nothing to see!! Nevertheless, the stroll over the bridge and through the valley offered fantastic views, so it was a worthwhile short hike.

This is an easy hike along a stream (although the stream was basically dry when we were there) that takes you past a small waterfall and up to a cave with, what else: moss growing in it. It took us about 45 minutes to complete the round trip; and we took time to enjoy the sights along the way. We... More

This trail is really worth it! The trail is called mossy cave trail, however the cave itself is not really that impressive.. however, the waterfall it leads to is totally worth it! it is a short hike along the river and finally leads to either the cave, or water fall. definitely recommend everyone to go there!

We hiked to the Mossy Cave but it isn't an actual cave you can walk into. The "cave" is fenced off. You can see the moss growing on the walls and ceiling but if you are looking to go in a cave, this isn't it. The trail does take you along running water and you can hike up to a... More

It was really nice to step out of the car and take a small hike to a tiny waterfall and small cave. We walked to the top of the small falls and then came back on our steps to walk the riverbed to the falls. Nice to step behind the falls and feel the cool water trickling on you on... More

It was a lovely day out, playing in the river and under the waterfall. The only disappointing side is that your not actually allowed in the cave. If you were allowed into the cave that would have been nice.

This is a nice, relatively short (15 minutes each way with slight uphill) walk, with a sampling of the typical Bryce red-rock pillars scenery. The "cave" itself is actually a slight overhang perhaps 30 feet wide with moss growing on a few spots. As such it isn't terribly exciting, though perhaps for somebody living in the southwest seeing that amount... More
