Last time I visited Cedar Breaks was nearly 4 decades ago! Following a camping experience we decided to drive there for a visit. The park was beautiful and the vistas unearthly. We paid the entrance fee and later upgraded to an annual National Parks pass. I strongly encourage visitors coming to Utah to visit our National Parks, purchase the annual... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Cedar Breaks. We have a 6 and 10 year old and were easily able to manage the hike out to Spectra Point to see the rim and the old bristlecone trees. The ranger was wonderfully knowledgeable and a pleasure to speak to. We arrived on a rainy day and he was honest with us... More

Breathtaking views, fun hike, nice little gift shop with lots of neat finds. Entrance fee was a bit overpriced for a national park

Cedar Breaks has been a favorite for me for twenty years. Beauty, quiet, minimal vehicle noise and stink, and the rangers know their stuff perfectly. CB is a true find!

We didn't know what to expect but Cedar Breaks was spectacular. It's much smaller in area than Bryce and Zion so it can be experienced in a side trip between Zion and Bryce.

We stopped at Cedar Breaks so my 93 year-old mother could get a picture to post on Facebook to show her friends. We've been to Cedar Breaks before and each time it amazes me the beauty of nature. Many wild flowers were in bloom. My mother said she felt like the view was better than the Grand Canyon.

The Annual Wildflower Festival was in full bloom when we visited, and although we didn't partake in any of the scheduled activities, we still delighted in the delicate beauty and diversity of the blossoms. We learned that the "cedar" are actually juniper and that the "breaks" refer to the badlands of steep canyons and cliffs. The amphitheater, with its brilliant... More

Mostly off the beaten path with lots of out reach. Although not as spectacular as Bryce, still fabulous eye-candy. Wildflowers, star and sky gazing, guided hikes, wildlife. Good volunteers also add a lot to the visit. Don't miss the wildflower festival in July. Spectacular.

I've been to Zions, Bryce, the Grand Canyon and Arches. Each park is beautiful in its own way. I recommend you see them all. Just not all on the same trip, then they start to blur together. We were down in Cedar City for the Shakespeare festival and tacked Cedar Breaks on the end of our trip. I'm so glad... More
