Attraction details
Owner description: 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 beautiful place that is as enjoyable getting to as it is being there. The scenic byway that leads to the park has many twists, turns and great views. The park itself has many different hiking trails for different abilities.
We walked from the visitor centre to the Ramparts viewpoint--a trail designated as 'strenuous'. It is easy enough to get to as it is mainly all downhill but as always, "Down is optional, up is mandatory"!
it was a lovely quiet walk with great views of the park--well worth the effort of getting back to the car. 'Strenuous' is definitely a relative term!

My husband and I drove up from Cedar after eating at a great restaurant in the mouth of the canyon. It was a gorgeous drive, a little windy in areas. We stopped at several of the vista points, the colors were extra vibrant and glowing as it was just an hour before sunset. July is a good time to come because the wildflowers are abundant. We liked the visitor's center where they had marked names of the flowers. We continued over to Brian Head. Not a lot going on there we could see, but a beautiful area. We drove through charming Parowan and then hit the freeway and went back to Cedar City. The whole evening (including dinner) took us about three hours.

This park is like a developing Bryce Canyon. One can imagine just how magnificent it will become in a thousand years or so. We were there during the Wildflower Festival, early to mid-July. Gorgeous!!

This is a great hidden gem of Utah. I don't know how many times I drove I-15 and saw the turn off for Cedar Breaks but never gave it much thought (because it wasn't Zion or Bryce), boy was I missing out. It is a beautiful drive getting there and a beautiful view once you are there. Now it isn't a large national park, but a place that has 4 different outlooks of Cedar Breaks. It is a uncrowded place to see the wildflowers, trees, meadow and take a few nice hikes. You are over 10,000 while you are at the monument so make sure you have your sunscreen and water.

The wildflowers were in bloom! There were several rangers available. One gave a guided talk, another was taking photographs of the pollinators. Even the guy in the entrance booth was enthused and informative. It was a hot day down in Cedar City but a welcoming and cooling breeze was blowing up at Cedar Breaks. Find out why they call it Cedar Breaks by visiting. Find out about the 15 plants that are unique to this environment!
