Overview
More
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.

We went here thinking that with a name with the word Monument in it, it must be man made, we were surprised to find out that it wasn't. Parking was very bad here and it was hard to find a park. When we did we...More

Beautiful views and a few hikes. They aren’t strict on their fee policy but pay it to help with the up keep. Several look outs to view and take photos and Brian Head is nearby for more hiking.

Its only twenty minutes from Brian Head. Every vista you stop at is more beautiful than the last. With out a second thought Utah has the country most beautiful National parks.

One of the best National Monuments in our country and should not be overlooked simply because you've been to Bryce Canyon National Park. It's been said a million times before and I'll say it too, Cedar Breaks is like a mini Bryce Canyon. But why...More

My brother took us to see the view by the Forest Ranger's station. I guess that's the same area that the wildflower festival takes place and we visited on the day after it ended. There were rangers there talking about the plants people could find...More

We arrived around 8:30 am and pretty much had the trail to ourselves for an hour or so then people started to come. After we got back from hiking to Rampart Lookout (4 miles roundtrip), the parking lot was full. So my advise is to...More

My mom (77 yrs old), my son (16) and I hiked out to the Bristle cone pine and back (2 miles round trip). Great views and worth the effort! Yes, it's 10,500 feet in elevation but take your time and enjoy!

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.
