Stopped here on our way to the main park. Well worth the half hour diversion. The cave isn’t much but the waterfall was great. Also unique views of the area.

Beautiful trail with some nice views, which are quite similar to the Bryce Canyon National Park. Beautiful creek.

This trail is called the mossy cave trail but the highlight for me was a small waterfall. I saw pictures of icicles in the cave in winter and that looked pretty amazing. I would say a fine short trail if you have some extra time...More

Mossy Cave is not in the main park. You have to go to the east side of the park. We had a bit of rain but that didn't deter us. What a treat. It's not terribly difficult to hike.

While it is a short hike, you will see everything. Arches, Windows, Hoodoo's, waterfalls, caves, Pinnacles, etc. You can even get behind the waterfalls. Very enjoyable hike

This was a nice short hike perfectly possible for small children. The cave was nothing special but the waterfall was quiet nice, still flowing with lots of water in August.

A good hike off Hwy 89 between Tropic and Bryce. 0.4 miles and minimal elevation gain make this a nice family hike. River and waterfall were running well in August.

You can't miss this trail. It is a quick hike through a narrow canyon (not slot.) If there is water, a waterfall will be running. The cave is cool to see but don't expect to go in; there really isn't a cave. The history here...More

This was the first hike we did in Bryce. You access outside of the entrance to Bryce canyon. It was summer so the river was pretty lame but the mossy cave was nice. You can get a "I Hiked the HooDoo's" rubbing on this trail....More

This hike right at the entrance to the Park is a short easy trail that leads to a very small waterfall and the Mossy Cave. It won't take you breath away but it is interesting and a nice warm up for longer more challenging trails...More

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

It says it runs year round. There was a drought a while back that dried it up but I would imagine there would be some moisture all the time
