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.

I drove to the top of Brian head and cedar breaks had so much with a bunch of snow. The snow pack was seriously deep. It was beautiful on top, but i was not able to look over the edge to see Zion or Cedar breaks because of the snow pack. It was still fun and kind of crazy to... More

We were traveling to Cedar City when we stopped at this National Monument. Just off State Hwy 143 we used our Senior National Park/Monument pass. Lots of parking we walked toward the amphitheater on a wide sidewalk. At the end was a small cabin like visitors center and gift shop. You could stand inside and see the amphitheater in a... More

Since we only live about 15 minutes from this National Monument, it's one of our favorite must see spots to take our visitors here in Southern Utah. You start at the Visitors center for some great views, but don't just stop there. Take the drive around the rim of this monument to get different views pulling into the many vista... More

Love Cedar Breaks - Best time to stop will be after Memorial Weekend as the road always closed before that.

Cedar Breaks has spectacular views, incredible color and pristine air-an absolute paradise. And one of the great things about this area is that is so easily accessible, especially to people who are no longer particularly adept at getting around. There are magnificent views mere steps from your vehicle, and longer hikes that are worth taking for those looking for a... More

It's like a mini Grand Canyon but with more colors. I highly recommend going off season. I've gone up there when it was closed and the snow was knee high but the view was so marvelous! Just seeing the snow capped mountains were spectacular! I think Ive been here at least 20 times in the past 28 years.

A great stop on a day trip from Cedar City. The views were great and there was even Hoodoos! We went in October & it is at a higher elevation - it was cold so dress warm (and even sleeting at one point).

We live close and have visited it many times. It is easy to drive to and a very short walk to the edge of the canyon. There are relatively short hikes which include seeing Bristle Cone Pine trees which are very old. It's beautiful any season.

This is just amazing. Take the time to go here. Because of time, we did not do any type of hiking, just drove and did the pull outs. The views are beautiful.

What a beautiful place to visit. Scenery is spectacular and very similar to Bryce Canyon. We visit this area at least every couple of months. Beautiful scenery during the fall, and you may even see a herd of sheep blocking the road and surrounding your vehicle.
