Very beautiful place. A place to see for sure when all the wildflowers are out in July. Lots of fun hiking trails too..

Stunning views. Definitely worth the drive up and then go on to Brian Head and see the ski slopes off season!

Truly beautiful to see...like sand be drizzled over the peaks. depending on where to sun is will make a difference in the coloring of the peaks. I would tell my friends they should see this. Also the meadows in the area are blooming and very colorful

Wonderful ride well worth it. We took lots of pictures. Be sure and do it. Do it a little later in the day, pictures will be better with the sun in a better position.

Cedar Breaks is smaller but I think better than Bryce. We came in June but there was still snow on the ground. It was cold. Great views from everwhere.

We went to the North View point only since the main road through the park, road 143, was closed because of snow, although it was in May. There was nobody there, it was even more fun to be with the nature. Next time we'll try to drive through the 143 Byway in the summer.

Come during the wiildflower festival and go on one of the guided tours or take one of the brochures and go on your own. The flowers abound in the wet areas along the trail that descends to a small pond. The amphitheater of red pinnacles and the open high country is deceiving--it is hard to imagine that there is such... More

Often overlooked, Cedar Breaks is a much smaller version of Bryce with the big advantage of no crowds. The views from the drive-up overlooks are stunning. The Spectra Point/Ramparts Overlook Trail is a 4 mile round trip hike. The first mile climbs 142 feet then drops 207 feet. There's a junction and straight ahead maybe another 100 yards is Spectra...

This place is a must if you're planning the whole Southern Utah road trip thing...I stopped here on the return home. If you are coming from Las Vegas you will probably have gone to Zion and Bryce. Instead of taking the same boring route back, head to Panguitch along the 143 Hwy. Stop at Cedar Breaks and then hop back... More

Cedar Breaks is a beautiful place to visit, the Monument is awesome and has 2 sections to view it from and a visitor center with information on how it was formed. The monument can be seen easily in a short time or you can choose to hike some of the nearby trails making your visit longer. The cities of Brian... More
