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.

Great short hike with a star shaped arch and nice waterfall. The cave didn't have any ice on our trip.

Such a neat less visited spot. Cool little trails, just remember, you love hiking and "social trails" destroy landscapes and I could tell in just my short time here exploring that in time this little spot may be closed because people don't stick to designated trails.

Don't miss this gem. We stoped on a whim as we were on the way to Bryce Canyon from Grand Escalante. It's a short hike with great payout. The views are amazing!

Really pretty and easy hike. Perfect for kids! The cave is really beautiful with the icicles and the sign said they should still be frozen until June. Don't expect a rushing waterfall but it's still very pretty. There are three trails to the waterfall, two are closed as they walk along the bank and parts of the trail have fallen in but the furthest left one is open and is the same distance as the others and takes you to the same place. Trail ends at the waterfall but it looks like there's a (probably unauthorized) trail on the other side of the creek if you want to go further.

This was an absolutely breathtaking and simple hike. It was perfect for our 6yr old and some amazing views.

Such a fun little hike. Easy, 1 mile there and back. Very suitable for kids. The cave and waterfall is fun and this time of year, there are neat icicles. We went in with only hiking boots as the trail was packed down.
