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 national monument is incredible! It is like a mini Bryce without the crowds! We hiked out to Spectra Point and had some spectacular views. We also hiked to Alpine Pond which was so serene and beautiful. The fall colors were amazing too!

Hwy 143 and 148 are very, very pretty drives in late September. We were there Sept 19, aspen color was peaking in the higher elevations. Compact park, easy to take in, in 2 hours.

If visiting Zion and Bryce Canyon be sure to take a side trip and see this great scenic wonder. It will be well worth the effort. Please buy a T shirt and support this attraction.

What a BEAUTIFUL place. To me it's like a mini Bryce Canyon. They have pull offs & you walk a short distance to the look out places. It is so AMAZING! It's a short drive through the park.

We were headed to another attraction and came upon this site accidentally. What a wonderful surprise to add to the many were experiencing on our SW Utah vacation. Don't miss it. It's a beautiful thing.

The Cedar Breaks national monument, like its more famous neighbour, Bryce, shows extraordinary erosion patterns on the west facing plateau cliffs. The brilliant oranges, reds. pinks and yellows display an absolutely fantastic eroded landscape of hoodoos, canyons, washes and gullies, extending for miles along the...More

It is only a very short and flat walk from the visitors center to the main overlook at Cedar Breaks. Since there is still snowpack, you may have to enter from the Brian Head ski resort side.
