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.

The road from Cedar City up to the Monument is STEEP! Just fair warning. But once up there the landscape is overwhelmingly beautiful. Huge green meadows, deep canyons in hues of red and orange and wildflowers galore! It started to rain as we got to...More

We hit most of the View points which provided terrific views of the canyons. This is like a mini Bryce Canyon with fins and hoodoos. The weather was perfect~

If you are anywhere near, this is a must see. It is a National Monument, so is free to holders of the Park Pass. There are great trails and a nice picnic area.

The drive up from Cedar City was lovely and tranquil. We hiked the easy trail with two children, who loved being out in the cool mountains and seeing the amazing amphitheater as much as we did.

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.
