Is this really a cave? We did not think so. Mossy Cave was very unimpressive, especially after having spent a few days around the Bryce Amphitheatre area and all the other areas of Bryce National Park. This "attraction" is off highway 12 at the end...More

Great short hike, mild incline at end when it branches to the right and left with less than a mile out and back including both branches. Pretty scenery along river, no ice or snow when we went this time, but no waterfall. Kids like this...More

Easy enough for early elderly. I'm 53, very out of shape and was able to do it! Helps to have good shoes as it can be a bit unstable on the gravel and loose rocks.

My teenage son and I took in this hike just before we departed the park to continue on our road trip. Although it might be a little more spectacular in May because of water runoff, it still was stunning and we enjoyed this easy hike...More

We visited here just after the ice had melted. There was no water and it was just a mossy cave. I wouldn’t have gone if I knew it had no ice or water flowing. The waterfall was ok, but the main parts of Bryce are...More

This trail is south of the main park entrance and worth the visit to. It is a short, fairly easy hike to see a small cave and then hike off of a fork in the trail to a small waterfall. The views are beautiful and...More

This short trail at Bryce Canyon National Park is in the northern end of the park on Scenic Highway 12, 3.7 miles east of the junction with State Route 63. It's several miles away from the popular Bryce Amphitheatre and outside of the fee area,...More

Separate from all the world famous scenery in the Bryce Canyon National Park, this little hike is a short, easy intertesting jaunt to be enjoyed by all groups. Small parking area off of 12 east.

Went to walk the trail in December, unfortunately there wasn't enough snow so there was no water at all. The hike was easy and went during sunset, the sun reflection was magnificent. However, we were disappointed with the main attraction (no waterfalls). Oh and we...More

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
