There's a little stream, which is nice. There's a tiny waterfall, but when I visited in May 2015, the waterfall trail was closed. The "mossy cave" is a small dropping overhang of rock. It's not a bad way to kill 20 minutes in the morning before you start a real hike, I guess.

If this little trail were in many other locations it would rate a better review, but it's a bit of a let down relative to just about everything else we did in the last week and a half in southern Utah. As others have mentioned, it's an easy little stroll, and it's free. We went when the water as flowing... More

Not sure what was best - the cave or the waterfall. This is a short walk but the small waterfall is fascinating and the water is kind of white from the minerals.. The Cave is probably best in wintertime when it is full of ice..

The cave was quite small and fenced off. Any hike is a good hike, so it was no loss per se, but all in all average at best.

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.
