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.

Driving Through Dixie National Forest from Cedar City, we stopped off at Cedar Breaks National Monument. There is a $5 a person fee to walk up and look down on Cedar Breaks. It was super cold and windy when we stopped, so we didn't stay long, but the views were very pretty. We noticed a Yellow -Bellied Marmot sunning himself... More

Being blessed that I have been to Bryce and Cedar Breaks, I found Bryce to be far and away more spectacular. If I had one day to do either park, no question what my destination would be.

This was so much better than Zion. Zion was way over crowded and too commercial. Cedar Breaks was so much more natural. If you go to Cedar City be sure and see it!

Cedar Breaks is a beautiful surprise on Hwy 89 between Hwy 14 and Parowan. The view is breathtaking but it can be very windy any time of year and it starts to get cold in September. It isn't all that much warmer in April when it re-opens as Cedar Breaks is closed for the winter. It is at altitude -... More

We were not familiar with Cedar Break National Monument. We visited Kolob Canyon (part of Zion) and I saw it on a map just a little north of us. I asked the range about it and he said it was nice and the drive to and from it was very scenic. He was right. We drove up to it- about... More

We stopped here on a recommendation even though it was not on our original list of things to do in Cedar City. It was amazing and worth the trip. The elevation is 10,500 ft. so it was a little difficult to hike. But it was breathtaking! I would say this is one of my favorite parts of our trip.

This is a must see if you are going to zion or Bryce. Spectacular views with friendly staff. You will be at 10k elevation so expect snow anytime.

This is a worthwhile stop before going to Zion or Bryce. It is near Cedar City home of the Utah Shakespeare festival. The views are spectacular and it is much less crowded than Zion and Bryce.
