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.

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.

We saw a lot here in a short time, without the crowds of Bryce. We enjoyed the short trails along the canyon rim, from the viewpoints along the scenic drive. Very high elevation though, noticeable for us flat landers. Aspens were gorgeous in October.

Stopped here on our way to Bryce and didn't make Bryce that day. There were some stunning views and a lot of places to stop and enjoy the scenery. The road through makes a nice loop away from Bryce so we had an enjoyable relaxing day and saved Bryce for another day.

While not the most spectacular of Utah's beautiful red rock geographic beauties, worth a stop if you're in the area.

We drove to this park from Bryce after being told the road was open. Yes, it was open, but they failed to mention it would be icy!! As we neared the entrance to Cedar Breaks, the road became very icy and slippery, not to mention scary! Ice and snow covered the trees and the canyon which made it all quite... More

The "Alpine Pond" is one of our favorite easy hikes. We have hiked it over a dozen times and each time it renews our spirit. The view of the "breaks" is always spectacular no mater what month.

Just a short drive to the east of Cedar City, Cedar Breaks is worth the visit. I sort of call this a 'mini Bryce.' The views are amazing. Just a close walk from the parking lot. The elevation here is over 10,000 feet, so you may want to take it slow. Even in mid October it was cold here only... More
