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.

This is not a terribly large park, but the views are great. We unfortunately didn't have the time to hike some of the trails but would have love to have spent more time there. It's well worth the $5 per person entry fee.

It is so beautiful. It is like a little Bryce Canyon. The different colors are amazing. It is worth seeing.

We were unable to get through Zion on a return from Kanab, so ventured north through to Cedar CIty with stop at Cedar Breaks for a short hike. SO glad we took the extra time to do this. Not only was it so much cooler, with nice cool breezes, but it afforded another view of the rampant gorgeousness that abounds... More

The elevation of Cedar Breaks, at 10,300 feet, means that the temperature is typically 10 to 15 degrees less than Cedar City, sometimes 20 to 30 degrees less. When we were there, the temperature in Cedar City was 95 degrees, and the temperature at Cedar Breaks was 65. It's a wonderful panorama, beautiful colors, and a breathtaking trip up highway... More

This is a "must see" that is often overlooked because of Bryce and Zion National Parks being so close by. The viewpoints are spectacular.

Lived in Utah all my life, getting to Cedar Breaks was never a high priority. Had a family reunion in Panguitch Utah, so we decided to hit Cedar Breaks just for the afternoon. Well worth the trip.

Fabulous red rock vistas at a national monument that is not overrun with visitors like many of the southern Utah parks. Beware the altitude - over 10,000 feet above sea level. Takes your breath away - literally.

Nice drive up from Cedar City. The overlooks are just amazing. Hiked to the Alpine Pond. The lower trail was a lot of up and down and the upper trail has a pretty severe switchback section near the pond. Well worth it. Sorry l missed the wild flowers.

We happened to be in St. George over July 4th and saw information in the paper about this being in the typical two-week period that the wildflowers are blooming at Cedar Breaks. We drove up I-15 to Cedar City and then over to Hwy 14 to go up the mountains. Hwy 14 was an excellent road, although the curves and... More

If you are in Zion, or Bryce Canyon, you owe it to yourself to take a trip to Cedar Breaks. A beautiful alpine area that is a treat to see. Like a smaller/newer version of Bryce, but at over 10,000 ft it is a great experience.
