Just Go to Bryce Canyon National Park – Mossy Cave Trail

Many people come to Bryce Canyon National Park to see the hoodoos, but few make their way over to the Water Canyon area and hike the Mossy Cave Trail.  This part of the park may seem remote, but it is relatively close to the main section of Bryce Canyon and very much worth the time it takes to get here.

This hike includes a cave (with cool temperatures that will surprise you), a gorgeous waterfall, hoodoos and even an arch.  In fact, few hikes in Bryce Canyon even have a little bit of water, so this trail is actually quite a unique experience.

This hike is fantastic for families, and highly recommended if you have the time while visiting this picturesque park.
