This is a nice and relatively easy hike. The waterfall is pretty and the mossy cave is exactly that, a mossy cave. It's a great view and a nice filler between hikes.

This cave and water fall is located on hwy 12 about 15 minute drive from park exit. turn right onto hwy 12, look for the cars on right side. Maybe a 20 hike to cave and waterfall. It's another great place to see.

This is a short and easy hike just off Highway 12 between the park entrance and Tropic. You'll see a small parking area next to the highway, with restrooms. The hike is easy, with little elevation climb. It's about 1/2 mile to the cave, which is not particularly exciting. But the trail splits off and goes a few hundred yards... More

After walking a few of the shorter trails, we decided to add this one to the list....we were glad that we did... we hiked it EARLY in the morning and it was perfect!

We found this place by accident while driving scenic Highway 12. It's a very easy trail and well worth the effort. Also view the lovely little waterfall.

it is the waterfall which makes this attraction unique and worth visiting. It is a relatively short trail to the waterfall around a mile and an extra 1/4 mile to the cave which is not worth mentioning

A park ranger recommended this trail when I expressed some reluctance about being able to do the Queens Garden trail. This was a nice trail, and easier because you drive down about 2,000 feet before getting to the trail. However, it is not spectacular like the views within the canyon itself.

The Mossy Cave trail is a short, but very nice trail that is located outside of the Bryce Canyon National Park. The hike is a little bit less than a mile, but brings you close to quite a few hoodoo rock formations, as well as a milky colored stream. The hike brings you to either the cave itself, or to...

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.
