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

This is probably the only trail we hiked in the park. We are older in age and a little heavy. It it very low impact walk. Worth the walk for the waterfall

At least, it was a fairly short hike. But the moss, at this time of year, is an ugly black, so not very impressive. The waterfall along the same path is more exciting.

I have gone to Bryce Canyon National Park several times but never thought of going here and that was a mistake. The trailhead is close to the park and the trail to the waterfall is about 30 minutes. The edge of the Bryce Canyon park...More

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