Spent about 2 hours in September here. Did the Point Supreme Overlook and the Spectra Point Overlook trails. The rocks are colorful and beautiful. The Point Super Overlook is a great trail and leads to great views. Definitely worth a stop if close to area.

By accident we came across Cedar Breaks National Park whilst heading to Cedar City for a night-stop. It is actually only 21 miles from Cedar City. It is a mini Bryce Canyon equally picturesque but on a smaller scale. Very worth while checking it out.

The rock formations of Cedar Breaks are nearly as beautiful as those of Bryce Canyon, but most of the park is preserved as wilderness, so the casual visitor has only the short scenic road along the top of the cliffs and a handful of viewpoints...More

We visited mid-October when it was bitterly cold, with snow falling. It was well worth it as the scenery was stunning, a smaller version of Bryce.

The views here are magnificent. They have some relatively short and easy walks. However, the ground is uneven and would not be suitable for everyone.

Most of the trails start along UT148, which is a paved road. Check the park website to see if the road is open before you go. The park is at a high elevation and gets a lot of snow; UT148 won't be open until the snow is... More

It really depends on how much rain we get over the summer. The moisture in the leaves can make a spectacular fall, or a dry brown fall. Both weekends would work. Everything depends on the weather! Sorry.
