This is a wonderful walk which is not too difficult. The views are spectacular and should not be missed. You walk along a river surrounded by rocky outcrops like those in Bryce Canyon. Walk takes approx 45 minutes to the cave and back. There is...More

Since the trailhead is actually located outside of the park on RT12 about 10 minutes east of Bryce, it is overlooked by many Bryce visitors. We actually made this stop leaving Bryce NP on our way up to Capitol Reef NP. It is an easy,...More

The waterfall and walk along the river were beautiful and peaceful, easy walk. The cave itself is more of small outcrop and not impressive. The waterfall and riverwalk though were awesome!
