The park had just opened mid May and there is not much hiking in the park but with the snow on the hoodoos it was a amazing. A mini Bryce.

Stopped here on the way to Yellowstone. Facilities were still closed for winter. Beautiful view and scenery, little bit of a detour, but definitely worth it. Lots of snow still, but so beautiful. Allow a few hours to see it.

We visited Cedar Breaks several days ago and found it to be beautiful. The park was opening for the season the next day, but we were able to get to all of the viewing areas. There was still snow everywhere, which just made the orange/red cliffs more spectacular. I'd like to go back when the weather is a little warmer.

Unfortunately we did. In the summer of 2014 we spent 2 months in the Southern Utah area around Panguitch and did not make it to Cedar Breaks. But today on our way to Cedar City on Utah 143, we took the cross way, Utah 148, past Cedar Breaks and decided to stop. It was spectacular and this was during a... More

It is the middle of May, and there is still snow on the ground. Snow came the prior weekend and might occur again this week. The ranger station and related amenities (think restrooms) don't open until the last weekend of May. Oh, the sights you will see. Due to the snow on the ground, we did not take any hikes... More

What an amazing campground. Located about 1/2 mile from the visitors center. It has spaces for both tents and RVs, a great restroom & shower, fire rings, tables, trash contains, and if you forgot...firewood for sale from the camp host. ($3 a bucket). We had limited cell service IF you need it. We were there 3 days, ($14 a day... More

Way off the beaten path and high in the sky, this is on a side road you may try when driving between Zion and Bryce National Parks. The road is fabulous and when you get on to RTs 14, 148 and 143 the traffic is much lighter and you have the place to yourself; RT 89 can get a tad... More

This place was absolutely stunning. While my husband was reluctant to take the side trip off the highway to get here, I just knew that this place would be special. First off, this is a steep climb for your car. At the very top, you are well over 10,000 feet in the air, positioned on the west side of the... More
