did Mossy Cave Trail right before entering Bryce. We checked out the cave and the waterfall. The cave is very small, and you can not enter, but it is indeed cute to see all the moss live on the wall of the cave, since it is very moist. The waterfall is definitely interesting. You will be amazed to see water in this dry land. and because water is keep flashing, the rock under the waterfall is like a big piece of jade Very pretty. But this trail is not in the park. So plan your time well before you go.

We enjoyed this little side trip after being at Bryce Canyon NP. The onsite parking fills quickly but there is another about 1/4 Mile away. The hike is fairly short overall to the Mossy Cave but some parts of the trail are steep & some quite close to the edge with no guard rail. The waterfall feeds the beautiful stream & the large rocks show off all the beauty of God’s Creation. Enjoy!!

Might say the trail was more pleasurable than the cave. There was no access to the cave, was fenced off. The trail and waterfall was lovely, but not readily easy to get to waterfall,. had to walk up stream edge. would not recommend for anyone would might have difficulty with hiking "moderate" trails.

We stopped off at Mossy Cave Trail in the middle of the afternoon. It was crowded. As we were dealing with Covid-19, people were not social distancing nor wearing masks. There is a trail that winds along a river. Beautiful! the trail forks and you can either walk to the Mossy Cave or a waterfall. The Mossy Cave was cool, but not much to see. We didn't go to the waterfall due to the crowd of people not wearing masks.

This is a peaceful and easy trail with beautiful views. I didn't find the "cave" very interesting as it's not really a cave, but the waterfall was very pretty. Get their early, the parking lot is small and people were parking on the highway when we left even though they're not supposed to.

Waterfall and the cave are great to see, but keep hiking past the falls to see some awesome canyons and creek with little to no visitors. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and it was dead (which was great). No fee to get in this part of the park.

Mossy Cave Hike is a short, very easy hike into a small waterfall & a small mossy cave! The hike is less than a mile roundtrip. The cave itself is a natural, sheltering cave not a cavern. The waterfall is a product of an irrigation ditch dug by local pioneers in the early 1890s. It is a very picturesque area of Bryce Canyon & I learned later in the day that you can hike farther into the canyon if you continue on a trail past the cave & waterfall.

We had a full and hot day of hiking inside Bryce Canyon and wanted to cool off. This is a short trail. Do not bother hiking on land. Total waste of time. Park your car and walk 5 minutes to the bridge and just get in the water. It’ll cover your shoes, sandals or whatever you are wearing. It might be ankle deep at some spots. Get in and go left. It’ll take you another 15 min of walking against the current to get to the falls. It was so much fun and a great way to cool off. My kids are 15 and 12 and we stayed and played for at least an hour.

My son and I visited the Mossy Cave Trail on our visit to Bryce Canyon. This is a fairly easy hike. There are hoodoos visible and a stream that was really manmade and dug by Mormon settlers to get water to the settlement of Tropic nearby. The Mossy Cave was much cooler than the trail. We were there in May, but there was still big pieces of ice in the cave. There were no icicles, but I hear those are beautiful at the right time of year.
The parking near this area was scarce. We did find a space, but we just happened to find someone pulling out. If you go at a busy time of year be aware that parking maybe hard to find nearby.
I recommend a hike on the Mossy Cave Trail.

Wonder and quick stop on the way in/out of Bryce. Definitely worth a trip to see the waterfall/stream, along with the weeping cave. The satellite image on Google is outdated, showing a small parking lot at the trailhead and no overflow lot. The main lot has been enlarged a bit, and there is a very large RV/overflow dirt lot 1000 feet east. We arrived at 8am in an RV, and had no problem parking at the trailhead. The trail is mostly level, with a couple bridges along the way. The whole site can easily be seen in under an hour if you are short on time.
