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 is a stunning piece of God's handy work. The splendor of Utah is not too far away from Historical Cedar CIty and is only a glimpse of what the 5 National Parks accessible from Southern Utah have to offer.

And I've hiked a lot of Southern Utah. It's about 1 mile or so each way to the "usual" point. But go on out another 1.5 miles (one way) to the end. Amazing. Pine trees, creek, wildlife and or course, breath-taking red rock.

Snow fron then evening before made patches of the road slippery, but was primarily gone by mid day. However, as you drive closer to Cedars Breaks NM, the roads were fully snow covered, slippery and UT-14 was closed getting back down the... More

Cedar breaks is only a short drive from Cedar City, and it is very much worth the drive! If you are looking to take some great pictures of Southern Utah, this is the place to visit! You can see all the monument has to offer in less than a few hours, so don't worry if you only have a short... More

You don't believe you can trust your eyes: This is Bryce Canyon, isn't it? Mistake. The grand view you're enjoying is that of Cedar Breaks National Monument.The rim is there, the steep fall, the famous Bryce colors. It's too good to be true. This is how you might want to access it: Coming from Cedar City, this is the ideal... More

As we stayed overnight in Cedar City on our way to Phoenix, we thought we would take the small detour to visit Cedar Breaks. As it was late October all of the visitor facilities in the park were closed for the season. Nevertheless, we did see some very nice scenery, and would like to return sometime in the summer to...

We were in Cedar City for the Shakespeare Festival and we're looking for something to do during the day. We made the loop from Cedar City including the Parowan Gap Peroglyphs and the cemetery in Paraowan on our way to Cedar Breaks. While I don't think this compares to Bryce or Zion, it is impressive in its own way. While... More

Incredible red rock formations, good trails, spectacular views. Easy to access from I-15. Visitor center has maps and information about the area. Best light for photography and the red rocks is in the afternoon.
