Enjoyable Little Snowy Walk

Experienced this trail late in the day which afforded some interesting lighting off the hoodoos. Peaceful and easy with some interesting icicles at the end.

This area is not in the main park, but does have quite a few visitors. The rock formations are towering above you as you walk along a creek bed below. Give you a brief glimpse of the coloration at Bryce.

This was a nice hike for our family, not too strenuous for after dinner and had some nice views. It didn't take long and we all enjoyed seeing the water and reading about how it got there.

This trail is Northeast of the park entrance along Route 12. There's just a small parking lot to mark it. The first time I went to Bryce, I thought it's worth the side trip if you want to get away from the crowds - nobody was here when we were. The trail is under one mile round trip, and it... More

This was a short uneventful hike. A few good interpretative signs along the way. Head down the road to see the real thing!

We stopped here mainly to use the rest room and then decided to take the hike. It is really short. The cave it self is sorta unspectacular. But the hoodoos you see along the trail to the bridge are nice and if you turn right instead of going to the cave (left and up the hill) you will have a... More

Although interesting, the cave itself is nothing to write home about. It is a nice easy trail with a small waterfall, but just not as scenic as the rest of the canyon

My wife and I walked this fairly easy one-mile out-and-back trail while visiting Bryce in mid-October 2016. It is a simple walk up to the mossy cave (where we did indeed see moss, only then realizing we had not seen moss anywhere else since we entered Utah). Another branch of the trail takes one into the Tropic Trench and allows... More

Not a very difficult hike. Easy access and interesting site. The trail goes up a slight incline to the viewing area. Afterwards we hiked for a mile up the canyon to see the falls.

A relatively easy walk up to a seasonal waterfall and a shady overhang (Mossy "Cave"). The little kids loved the tiny stream along the trail.
