We have been here several times since moving to Southern Utah. It is an easy drive and has a spectacular view. In the summer there is a Wildflower Festival with nature walks by Forest Rangers. There is a nice gift shop there with very friendly rangers to answer any questions.

I really liked the views and seeing the power of erosion. There is some really nice trails along the rim to hike. I would caution hiking them in wet conditions as the clay becomes slippery.

If you like the color combinations of the 5 National Parks in Utah, you'll love Cedar Breaks. Canyons come in many brilliant colors and vistas go forever. Take the short dirt road (good one if dry) to Brian Head mountain' stop for amazing views of 3-4 states --panoramic shots on iPhones encouraged! There is a small admission charge as this... More

We did this hike in the morning because we heard it was not a big tourist attraction. We thoroughly enjoyed a leisurely hike, seeing some spectacular views and enjoying the wildlife on the trail. Afterwards, we drove to Bryce and although it is exceptionally beautiful, it is teeming with tour busses and loud people. Not nearly as serene and calm... More

Don't miss this! Worth the drive and short hike to view the rim of the canyon and the bristlecone pines, one of which is purported to be 1600 years old!

If you are in Cedar, you need to go up the mountian to Cedar Breaks. I don't know how to describe it except mountian eye candy. The colors and shapes of the breaks are beautiful. It is worth it, even if you only have a short time to visit. There are 4-5 different overlooks to stop at and gaze out... More

This place is GORGEOUS! Myself & 3 daughters (twins age 16 and an 8yr old) have hiked both the Spectra Point and Alpine Pond trails, and went stargazing and for all being at the same place, they are all very different views - love them all! I've gone into Cedar Breaks both from north of Cedar City (from Parowan) and... More

The amphitheater was the best picture spot of our whole trip- totally recommend for photography buffs or travelers hoping to look like they had an epic time in Utah. As impressive and beautiful as this spot is it was very easy to get to- you drive almost all the way there- a plus for our group that had some members... More
