Main lookout point 5 minutes from entrance, barriers with a deep drop off. Fantastic views, very safe even if you do not like heights.

Cedar Breaks is especially beautiful in the Fall. The drive up during fall is joyful with the aspen trees wearing bright yellow leaves. Cedar Breaks is an awesome view and well worth the small fee and short walk from the parking lot. It is described as a naturally formed amphitheater and it reminds me of Bryce National Park.

Cedar Breaks is located approximately 24 miles from Cedar City. The drive is very scenic to the park that is located 10500 above sea level. The climb to the park is very scenic especially in the fall when the aspens are brilliant yellow. the valley below Cedar Breaks is filled with them. The park is smaller version of Bryce Canyon...

These views are pretty abundant in this part of Utah, but if you're staying near Brian Head and don't want to drive 90 minutes to Bryce, this is the place to go. The Rangers will tell you all about the environment and how the Breaks came to be. It's very beautiful.

We figured to stop by Cedar Breaks National Monument before heading to Bryce Canyon. We drove from St George, about 90 miles North to Cedar Breaks. We got there early, around 9:30am, paid $4 per person at the entrance. If you have the National Parks Pass, you can get in for free. There were about 5 overlooks that you can... More

This is worth the short drive off the highway. It's hugely wonderful, especially in the fall, seeing the autumn colors. It's easily a one-day or half-day trip. You will not regret it it all. Stop at all the viewpoints as they are each unique in their own way and add to the experience. At the south end, take the dirt... More

This park is really small. There are about five overlooks. There is a campground. I didn't see anything like hiking or anything of that sort that allows you to go down into the canyon. I see this park as more of an intro for driving from Cedar City to Bryce Canyon National Park. It is quite pretty with the evening... More

Most people drive right past this less-known national park, and head to Bryce, or Zions, or Arches. Don't miss this one! It's a great half day stop. Hikes are 2 or 4 miles, and the views are stunning. Be mindful, though, of the elevation. 10,000 feet is not much oxygen for those not used to hiking at this height.

This park is not far from i-15 and is worth the visit if you have the time. A good pass-through on your way to Zion or Bryce. We were there in early October and the yellow leaves of the aspens were brilliant. We miss fall color and this is probably one of the best places in the NV, UT area... More

There aren't lots of hikes here but the views are stunning. It will take your breath away, this place is high enough to affect your breathing on a strenuous walk if your not used to it.Compared to all the major parks we visited this place is quiet. Enjoyed the drive and colours of the turning autumn trees.
