Very few tourists, fresh, cool air, breath-taking views of the colorful sandstone cliffs, walls, and pinnacles, along with aspens with leaves of red, yellow, and gold

Looks like a great monument but we only got to see the North View because Hwy 148 was still closed by the snow. What we did see was beautiful. Next year maybe.

A great hike - not too difficult among the Bristle Cone pines. Even in the summer it's not crowded. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the view. You will be amazed at the fabulous formations carved by Mother Nature. Makes you appreciate even more the...More

Breathtaking grandeur. Even if you're not interested in the theories of how this was formed you can hike the trail and take photos from the look out. The formation of the rising stone mixed with the trees and the colors is amazing!

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.
