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.

Cedar Breaks is a compact little monument - you can see the main sights and hike the main trails within a half day. It's just as pretty as some of the big boys in the region. We did two main hikes: Alpine Pond Trail: From the trailhead at the Chessmen Ridge Overlook, you head north along the rim of the... More

We've visited the area hiking the National Parks but always wanted to hike Cedar Breaks. The Monument is located about 14 miles from Cedar CIty, Utah and is an easy, beautiful drive. We did 2 hikes while in the Monument, one along the rim which was about a 2 mile out and back and one a loop trail, farther down... More

Cedar Breaks NM is a small part of Dixie National Forest. We stumbled on it, and were pleasantly surprised. We got an intimate view of the grander amphitheater we would see in a couple of days at Bryce Canyon NP. Cedar Breaks is a great example of the way that erosion can show you what happened geologically over millions of... More

At the time of the year we traveled, the road to Cedar Breaks is usually closed from where we were driving, so we were pleased it was still open. We were glad to show our kids a little bit of cool Utah geology. We actually ate our Thanksgiving picnic at an overlook spot at Cedar Breaks. We didn't expect there'd... More

More often than not, we visit Cedar Breaks National Monument in the summer. This time, however, we thought we would take a look during the colder or winter months. It did not disappoint.

Check travel conditions before setting out, as much of the road way is 9,000 feet plus and will ice. Early November, roads were perfect and Canyon views are magnificent. Equally thrilling is the changing vista as you climb. Road condition is excellent and quite safely maintained.

Nice drive to get there and nice place to visit. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Fantastic views. Gift shop inside. It was either free or a very small fee.

The views from all of the lookouts at Cedar Breaks are absolutely amazing! Depending on the time of year, you can catch everything from the blossoming mountain flowers to the lightly snow dusted peaks. An absolute must see!

A breathtaking view up Cedar Mountain. It has a beautiful overlook and trails that you can hike. The gift shop is charming and the people are great.

While camped in Kanab waiting to win the lottery for a permit to North Coyote Buttes, we visited this national monument, before route 148 closes (after the first heavy snowfall). It is about 1.5 hrs from Kanab. The visitor center was already closed but the park itself was open. There were a few visitors; this added to our enjoyment since... More
