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...more
We went here thinking that with a name with the word Monument in it, it must be man made, we were surprised to find out that it wasn't. Parking was very bad here and it was hard to find a park. When we did we...More
One of the best National Monuments in our country and should not be overlooked simply because you've been to Bryce Canyon National Park. It's been said a million times before and I'll say it too, Cedar Breaks is like a mini Bryce Canyon. But why...More
My brother took us to see the view by the Forest Ranger's station. I guess that's the same area that the wildflower festival takes place and we visited on the day after it ended. There were rangers there talking about the plants people could find...More
We drove through Cedar Breaks National Monument on our way from Salt Lake City to Zion National Park. The road climbs to over ten thousand feet. We had flown in from sea level the previous night and we could feel the thinner air as we...More
We arrived around 8:30 am and pretty much had the trail to ourselves for an hour or so then people started to come. After we got back from hiking to Rampart Lookout (4 miles roundtrip), the parking lot was full. So my advise is to...More
This was a beautiful place to visit. The ranger was friendly. We had our adult daughter with multiple disabilities in her wheelchair and got around fairly easily on the Sunset trail. The overlooks are obviously beautiful. My hubby and I are afraid of heights so...More
My mom (77 yrs old), my son (16) and I hiked out to the Bristle cone pine and back (2 miles round trip). Great views and worth the effort! Yes, it's 10,500 feet in elevation but take your time and enjoy!

Most of the trails start along UT148, which is a paved road. Check the park website to see if the road is open before you go. The park is at a high elevation and gets a lot of snow; UT148 won't be open until the snow is cleared (though you can still hike in). If UT148 is closed, you can still access North View overlook on UT143, and there is a trail head along the road just north of that overlook for Rattlesnake Creek Trail, which goes along the north edge of the park.

It really depends on how much rain we get over the summer. The moisture in the leaves can make a spectacular fall, or a dry brown fall. Both weekends would work. Everything depends on the weather! Sorry.
Weather is very unpredictable at this time of year. We had some family venture up to Cedar Breaks a couple weeks ago. The weather was fine in Cedar Valley but they encountered heavy snow on their way up the mountain, tried... More
Weather is very unpredictable at this time of year. We had some family venture up to Cedar Breaks a couple weeks ago. The weather was fine in Cedar Valley but they encountered heavy snow on their way up the mountain, tried turning around, went off shoulder and had tires spinning (They are not experienced snow drivers) My advise is check weather and road conditions by calling Utah DOT, Brian Head Ski Resort or Parks department before you head out on your adventure. Also take a 4 wheel drive vehicle, fuel up vehicle before you head out and carry emergency kit (water, granola bars, blankets) with you just in case you get stuck. Might want to check out Snow Canyon - less likely to see snow and warmer climate.
