Overview

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.

Clearly Cedar Breaks NM is NOT equivalent to Bryce NP. Anyhow, on a limited area and in a limited time (less than two hours doing all overviews and the Visitor Center with no hikes), you can get a good view of the hoodoo phenomenom. Don’t...More

Exertion in this small park may leave you huffing and puffing since the altitude is above 10,000 feet. There are overlooks and some trails. Even in June there was still some snow on the ground. The vistas of hoodoos are beautiful. Park fee, bathrooms available,...More

What a wonderful surprise! After leaving a busy day at Zion, we had the place to ourselves. They guys were throwing snowballs while wearing shorts. So glad we stopped.

My family (8 of us) ventured to Cedar breaks this week a day after seeing Zion Canyon and honestly I enjoyed this almost as much. It's not as big, of course, but the fact you climb a couple thousand feet to the top and look...More

It's definitely worth stopping for...the views are amazing and full of color. There's a variety of hiking trails not long and short. We enjoyed walking around with our young daughters for an afternoon. If you're in the area then it's worth a half day of...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.
