This is a good hike for an inexperienced hiker. There is a cave and a waterfall which makes the hike all the more interesting. I highly recommend this one for everyone....young and old alike.

This 1 mile short hike offers a pleasant walk which splits into two directions. We went to see Mossy Cave first, which was ok. It was smaller than I anticipated, but you were able to see the lichens and moss. The waterfall on the artificially created stream was by far the best part of this hike. There were many children...

Beautiful views after a relatively short hike, easy with kids, youngest six yrs old. Shaded, cool breeze at the end great for lunch and quiet time.

We did this trail for the Hike the Hoo doos challenge and we loved it. Got to the cave and cooled off in it. Talked to a lot of people at the cave that were friendly and just out loving life, how refreshing!! Hiked over to the waterfalls, great place for photo ops and played in the water. This hike...

Toddlers and tweens had a great time on this short hike (30 min?) ending in a chilly waterfall. It was lovely after hiking in Red Canyon on a warm day. Bigger kids can walk in the creek the whole way to the waterfall, toddlers would need a little help- or can just use the path next to the water. At... More

We had a number of children between the ages of 3 and 9 and they all had a great time on the hike and were able to do the entire hike. It is a short hike and great scenery along the way.

The trail follows the creek and crosses a bridge. The views are awesome. There is a waterfall trail that splits off from the main trail. There were a lot of people playing in the falls and wading in the water. The cave doesn't have a huge amount of water. The cave isn't super huge. You can see all kinds of... More

We drove from Torrey via All American Road, aka Utah Rt 12 to Bryce. This is the first interesting trail on our way before we entering the main park. Nice hike to see waterfall, hoodoos, windows, mossy cave and canal. A very easy hike. Pretty flat.

I would not have known about this trail if it wasn't for the Geocache there. Obviously very few others knew about as well. Great short walk, maybe 1/2 mile one way. The waterfall was like an oasis in the desert cave was worth the short extra walk up. Some folks made their way down to the waterfall and played in... More

We missed the hike the first time we were at Bryce. It's not by the main entrance being down UT 12 a little ways as you head east of the park. Keep an eye out for the signs. A short hike along a creek that leads to a nice little waterfall. Take the left fork to a rock overhang which... More
