Notes

Mossy Cave in Bryce Canyon is a very easy hiking trail in southern Utah that is great for kids and features incredible scenery. Mossy Cave is in the northern section of Bryce Canyon National Park. The trail takes hikers up close to hoodoos and spires without thousands of feet of elevation change, making it ideal for hikers with young children. Towards the end of the trail hikers come to fork, the right takes you to a small waterfall, the left to Mossy Cave. Check out both and happy hiking! Bryce Canyon National Park has two campgrounds, Sunset and North Campgrounds.

History

Mormon Pioneers settled Bryce Canyon in the early 1850’s. The park is named after Ebenezer Bryce who homesteaded in the area in the 1870's. The stream along the Mossy Cave Trail was originally created by early pioneers to irrigate crops.
