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.

Cedar Breaks has spectacular views, incredible color and pristine air-an absolute paradise. And one of the great things about this area is that is so easily accessible, especially to people who are no longer particularly adept at getting around. There are magnificent views mere steps from your vehicle, and longer hikes that are worth taking for those looking for a... More

It's like a mini Grand Canyon but with more colors. I highly recommend going off season. I've gone up there when it was closed and the snow was knee high but the view was so marvelous! Just seeing the snow capped mountains were spectacular! I think Ive been here at least 20 times in the past 28 years.

A great stop on a day trip from Cedar City. The views were great and there was even Hoodoos! We went in October & it is at a higher elevation - it was cold so dress warm (and even sleeting at one point).

We live close and have visited it many times. It is easy to drive to and a very short walk to the edge of the canyon. There are relatively short hikes which include seeing Bristle Cone Pine trees which are very old. It's beautiful any season.

This is just amazing. Take the time to go here. Because of time, we did not do any type of hiking, just drove and did the pull outs. The views are beautiful.

What a beautiful place to visit. Scenery is spectacular and very similar to Bryce Canyon. We visit this area at least every couple of months. Beautiful scenery during the fall, and you may even see a herd of sheep blocking the road and surrounding your vehicle.

This is a great place for an easy hike with spectacular views. I will be visiting again and again with just a short drive from my home.

We visited during January after a heavy snow. The scenery was spectacular, if you like high mountain snow scenery. Since road 148 was closed for the season, we could only view the southern end of Cedar Breaks from highway 14. This place is typical of most of the southern Utah National Park scenery. Dramatic red and orange colored cliffs, buffeted... More

The most beautiful scenery you will ever see. Nice areas to hike for photo opps; clear, clean crisp air and just relaxing. You just don't want to leave the area.

We reached Cedar City earlier than planned, so after a late lunch, headed out to Cedar Breaks for an afternoon excursion. The gorgeous drive up the mountains leads to the high alpine meadows, where this National Monument's visitors' center is located. It's a lovely place, with very friendly and helpful park rangers/guides and not overly crowded with visitors. After some... More
