Worth the drive to this National Monument. We did not hike we just went for the drive and walked around at each lookout area. Sunset View Overlook, Chessman Ridge overlook and the North View Overlook. We were able to catch the Wildflower Festival which is amazing to see on my next visit would like to hike some of the trails.... More

A refreshing break from the heat. We were fortunate that in the summer (July) they have activities for kids for the Annual Wildflower Festival such as bug catch/identify and release and painting. The staff and volunteers were great help to my kids. They also have sun viewing telescopes and at night sky viewing operated by volunteers. The view from the... More

This national monument is easily experienced in a day. There are two easy hikes and four scenic view turn outs and the elevation keeps things cool. The scenery is stunningly beautiful. Worth the drive!

Wildflowers and other vegetation, birds, views, geology. Sun-viewing telescopes set up at Visitors' Center by volunteers were quite interesting. At 10,000+ feet elevation night-time sky viewing is fantastic!

It is smaller than Bryce Canyon, but the same geology. You look down from 10,000 feet above sea level.

Really lovely scenery. It reminded us of Bryce Canyon, but it is not nearly extensive. The Visitor Center is quite small. This was a nice place to spend a couple of hours as we passed through the mountains, well worth a stop for the gorgeous views.

We accidentally found this awe inspiring magestic landscape this morning when leaving the wonderful Grand Lodge in Brian Head Utah. My goal was to find a good clean upper scale hotel with a reasonable rate not to far from Sedona Ariona through the Grand Canyon to Bryce canyon. Wow is all we have to say! This is a must see...

Cedar Breaks is a great visit if you've got a few hours to kill in or around Cedar City. The drive up there from town is spectacular, winding through forests and canyons, then over mountain passes until you reach the monument at over 10,000 feet elevation. Holding a National Parks Annual Pass I didn't have to pay anything but I... More

The is a Bryce Canyon at 10,000 feet. While we were there, there were myriads of wildflowers blooming in the meadows - jusg beautiful. We took the 2 mile Spectra Point hike and really enjoyed the flowers, the bristlecone pine, and the views of the amphitheater. It is a small park and a bit off the beaten path, which really... More
