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.

Just another of the incredible, must see, sights in southern Utah. It looks like they have a nice small campground, too. Unfortunately, I got a flat tire on my motorcycle and cell phone service is pretty weak, way up there. I was able to get through and get a tow.

We drove up on a Sunday morning and encountered few people at each scenic overlook or trail head. The changes in scenery from stop to stop were amazing (and a function of the changes in elevation). There were still some wildflowers blooming at the end of August, and the temperature was cool but not cold. We walked the Alpine Loop... More

Truly one of the most beautiful sites in Utah that is very accessible by auto. Less than a half hour off of the interstate. Breath taking views. Not as well known as other Utah areas but one of the prettiest!

This attraction is sort of like a mini-Bryce National Park, with many beautiful hoodoo-like colorful geologic structures. Being off the beaten path, many visitors pass on coming here ... their loss. You will find a peaceful natural (eye-candy) treasure, hiking trails, and lots to photograph. Don't miss this. TIPS: (1) This is at high altitude (Google it) so those from... More

The view was stunning! Red rocks in the midst of the green trees in the mountains. Totally worth the trip to see it! Two hikes, one or two miles long or you can go to the lookout that right by the parking lot.

We were at Bryce Canyon and then visited Cedar Breaks on our way to Cedar City. The actual scenic drive is only about 5-6 miles so your visit can be quite short. However, each of the Overlooks provide breathtaking views of this unique area. It is very different and worth a visit. A nice surprise was the drive down from... More

Having seen Bryce Canyon, and pictures of Cedar Breaks, it only made sense that we checked this out on our way home to northern UT from AZ. I am so glad that we did! It is not as big as Bryce but the view is just as stunning! We missed most of the wildflowers by about 2 weeks but you... More

Much smaller than Bryce Canyon NP and Zion NP, Cedar Breaks makes up for the lack of size with a park that has lush meadows, wildlife, and beautiful colors in a huge natural amphitheater. There are trails, a visitor center, and 4 or 5 overlooks from which to enjoy the scenery.

We love Cedar Breaks because it is small, not crowded and stays relatively cool because it is at 10,400 feet. We did both the alpine pond hike and the rampart overlook hike with our 7 and 10 year olds. The alpine pond hike was shady and cool. The views on the spectra/rampart hike are stunning. But if you only have... More

We wanted to escape the heat of the endless summer and decided to drive to Cedar Breaks last weekend. The drive was easy and it got cooler nearing the park. The park was at above 10000 ft elevation and as it was raining in some parts of Utah, it started getting chilly and the temperature dropped to 56 degrees. Before... More
