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.

All in all a nice stop, but hardly worth a dedicated travel. The cave is not very impressive in late summer. The trail up to the windows is closed

The cave is more like an alcove, but the waterfall was beautiful!

Very short. Easy for small children. The creek was easily accessed and made for some fun hiking near the water.

Very easy walk, no need for anything except a camera and the clothes on your back.

Love this trail!!! Easy quick great for kids. Beautiful views. Waterfall is the best (drought years there is usually no water coming down). Mossy cave is nice not that amazing. This is a good little short hike for the family.

To find the windows, when you get to the 1st bridge stop and look up at hoo doo ahead of you and look to the left. Can you see them?

Great trail for whole family. Just make sure you stay on the trail.

It was a really awesome hike, but there were a lot of confusing parts going to the waterfall. The trail to the waterfall was also very slippery. The mossy caves were really cool through.

A very short and sweet hike in Bryce Canyon. The trail takes you to a majestic fast-flowing seasonal waterfall and a small overhang with moss on the ceilings. Very easy and great for kids!
