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.

A much smaller but more accessible version of Bryce. There aren't many hiking opportunities, but if you're traveling with someone who has mobility issues, this is the place. There are 3-4 drive up vistas that are breathtaking. No big crowds, no need for a shuttle.

This is a beautiful place to visit for rim-side viewing. There are no official trails to hike below the rim (according to the volunteer interpretive guide I spoke with). It is a smaller, and much less crowded version of Bryce Canyon. If there were some...More

This is a cool and very unique place! It's also very nice because of the weather - always a few degrees cooler than the surrounding towns. It is similar to Bryce Canyon, but different enough to be worth the visit. Stop at all of the...More

We drove up to this monument never having been there before (while on a camping trip heading to Canada from San Diego). Very pretty park. Lovely scenery including spring flowers. We enjoyed a picnic outside even when it was very chilly. I was surprised it...More

This National Monument is much less visited than the many other parks located in Utah, but just as worthy and beautiful nonetheless! The bowl of red rocks viewed here are the same ones that erosion formed on the eastern side in Bryce, yet so different.

We took a side trip on our drive home to visit Cedar Breaks. It is amazing! Wish we'd had more time to take one of the two short hikes that started at the Visitor's Center (1 and 2 miles each). The air was about 20°...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.
