An easy stroll in Bryce next to a creek that brings you past hoodoos, to a waterfall, and then to a mossy cave where icicles hang in the shady places. If you feel adventurous, climb to the hole in the wall above the falls. Mossy Cave is the trail you want to go to if you have a very short time and want to do a little hike. Or, if you have guests or kids that do not like to break a sweat on a hike, this is a perfect little stroll where you can get the whole below canyon experience without the hike down into the canyon.

Short hike, easy grade with steep sections to the waterfall and "cave." The waterfall is unique in that the water looks gray from clay deposits. The side trail takes you right to the top of the waterfall (which isn't large at all, maybe 15 feet or so). The cave is more of a disappointing rock overhang with moss along the sides and slight water trickles down. The trail takes you under the overhang but above the floor of the cave. Not much of a view and very small. The views looking up at the hoodoos in the beginning of the trail are likely the best part of the trail, but views like this can be had along any other trail in the park. Save your time and hike anywhere else!

Nice view of the creek and waterfall but the grotto itself was rather disappointing. The trail is hard packed dirt from years of heavy use with some inclines but nothing too difficult for anyone. Overall I would suggest spending more time in the area on a different trail.

Very short easy hike with a beautiful cave and a cool waterfall at the end. Worth the time.
