Mossy Cave Trail is a break from some of the longer paths in Bryce Canyon, for it is very short and the payoff is brilliant—this was one of my favorite places of my whole time at Bryce. The path is relatively flat for the most...More

One of several reviews related to a 20 day Grand Circle tour. We visited mossy cave on the day we left Bryce (on our way over to Zion). Being outside of the park proper, this short half mile walk is definitely a hidden gem. The...More

We stayed in Tropic and saw this trail head on our way into the park. It is short, somewhat shaded, is next to a river, and has a waterfall on one fork and a mossy cave on the other. It is short and moderately steep...More

Bryce's best kept secret. The cave is definitely not worth seeing. It was an underwhelming experience (fortunately it is a short walk from the fork in the trail). The trail by the water is very nice and easy to navigate. Go right instead of left...More

Located several miles away from the main entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park, the Mossy Cave Trail is a fun and easy hike, a good way to see a hidden part of the park before or after visiting the main thoroughfare.

This trail is both easy to do and easy to get to along the main highway (near Tropic). There are very nice hoodoo views and a cave and waterfall at the end.

The waterfall is nice - don't waste the time to go to the cave unless you're there in the winter (and get lucky with icicles - it's really nothing much). It's a short hike and nice to see, but nothing compares with the actual park....More

This hike offers a nice river running through it. The hike is very short but walking along the river after numerous dry desert hike was a welcome change. The Mossy cave was a disappointment.

For a short walk in the beauty of Bryce, this is a very pretty little trail leading up to a cave. A nice waterfall provides photo ops against the unique rock formations. A good warm up trail or very walk for children who may not...More

There are no pull-through parking spots at the trailhead. It's a small lot for cars and maybe campers.

It says it runs year round. There was a drought a while back that dried it up but I would imagine there would be some moisture all the time
