We stopped here on our way to Bryce Canyon. The ranger at Cedar Breaks described the park as "tall and skinny" and Bryce as "short and fat". I think that is an apt comparison. At Cedar Breaks you've followed a twisting road up to a great altitude. From there you look down into the canyon to see the hoodoos. There are hiking trails but, unlike Bryce, they don't go down in among the rocks. We took part of the hike to the alpine lake. The aspen had turned gold and the smell of the pine trees made up think of an old-fashioned Christmas tree lot. When we visited the Visitor Center was closed. It is a small building so I don't know how much information there would have been if it had been open.
