We wanted to see this area that we had seen from above on horseback. It is really an easy hike down to the river and then up a moderate incline to see the cave on one side and a waterfall on the other.

This hike is for those people who don't feel like they've visited a National Park unless they have seen running water or waterfalls. Iff that's not you, you can probably skip it. The nice part of the waterfall, if interested, is that you can get behind the waterfall for come cool pictures.The waterfall is small, and the cave is just... More

We stopped here for a quick hike and enjoyed seeing WATER in motion in the arid climate. The trail is located south of the park out of the main park area as you head toward Cannonville. There is no fee to park. Look for all of the cars parked on the right side. We read signage about how the Mormons... More

This is a short drive from the main canyon and all of the facilities around Ruby's but worth a visit for an hour or two. The Mossy Cave itself isn't very exciting but the short walk up the trail, and over the bridge to the waterfall is pleasant enough. We enjoyed our stroll here and would visit again if we... More

This is a very easy and short hike. It is nice to be walking along the river and there is a neat little waterfall you can go right up to. The mossy cave is interesting, especially because the water seeps out of the rock, but it's not really a cave, it's more of an overhang. So as long as you... More

This is our second trip to Bryce canyon and we missed the mossy cave trail the first time but I'm glad we hiked it this time. Very scenic and enjoyable. The falls are better than the mossy cave but do both.

I have done this hike twice now. Once during a drought and there was no water at the waterfall and very little in the stream. It was still a nice hike, but nothing compared to what it was this year! I was blown away with the clear, turquoise water and the rip roaring waterfall and the full and luscious plants.... More

We enjoyed this short, 0.8 mile hike along a very clear river. It ends in a cave (which you cannot go in) and a waterfall. It is pretty and I'm glad we went. It is on the outside of the main part of the park and free to visit.

This is a great, easy trail for the whole family. It is a nice hike to finish out the day. You follow a stream which leads to a waterfall so if it is really hot outside this is definitely a hike to consider. The trail head is outside the park off the highway. There are bathrooms at the trailhead. Short,... More
