A smaller version of Bryce Canyon, this 2,500-foot deep basin filled with strange limestone formations in a vivid array of colors and hues offers breathtaking views on a five-mile drive along the rim. This naturally formed amphitheater has guided walks in the summer and a few designated hiking trails.

Best little getaway if you want to breath some fresh air and forget about the city.

There is so many trails with so much to see. The air is fresh and crisp, such a sweet little gift from nature! It's like a little Grand Canyon.

MINI GRAND CANYON!! Don't miss it, really gorgeous. Also up in the mountains and always 15020 degrees cooler than Cedar City. We visit and re-visit EVERY year. One of nature's magnificent spots. If you have Natl Parks Pass, you can enter for free!

I loved the views and trails. It was described as a mini-Bryce, but it's actually unique and beautiful. I can't wait to go back. Everyone was super friendly.

Beautiful viewpoints and easy to get to. Small but adeqaute visitors center. We even saw a wild Marmot (sort of like a squirrel) right next to the trail.

We loved it! The kids both earned another Junior Ranger badge here. They had great ranger programs, and we were impressed by their new Junior Ranger activities. Really, they were among the best our kids have done - and they've done quite a few Junior Ranger programs around the country. There are a couple of 1-2 hour hikes you can... More

We decided to drive here for the day from St George to get away from the heat of 108 and what a wonderful retreat from the heat. It was 65 degrees at 10,350 feet and quite refreshing. Do not miss the Spectrum Point trail which gives you panoramic views of the canyon and takes you right to the edge. This... More

This is a well-managed, very scenic national monument with spectacular views of the weird red sandstone formations.

This is a hidden gem. You can walk the rim of the canyon that contains the geological formation in Bryce Canyon National Park and you can loose yourself along a trail leading to a quite Alpine pond. The views are as dramatic as they are varied. What the park lacks in amenities like dining and lodging, although they do have... More

The view from high above the amphitheatre into the rock layers and hoodoos is amazing, but be aware it can be cold up there. We had left behind temperatures of almost 100 degrees at Canyonlands, but it was only just over 40 degrees at the Visitor Centre. Three was still enough snow lying on one of the paths to force...
