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

Well worth the 20 mile trip from Cedar City. The scenic drive itself is an experience.
It feels like the drive-through version of the Grand Canyon. You drive-up, walk 20 steps et voila - spectacular canyon views as far as the eye can see.
Cedar Breaks is a fascinating site. I visited during their winter season, so all the visitor centers and facilities were closed. Either way, you don't need a visitor center to appreciate superlative natural sites. I was the only person there during my visit.
Spent about 2 hours in September here. Did the Point Supreme Overlook and the Spectra Point Overlook trails. The rocks are colorful and beautiful. The Point Super Overlook is a great trail and leads to great views.
Definitely worth a stop if close to area.
By accident we came across Cedar Breaks National Park whilst heading to Cedar City for a night-stop. It is actually only 21 miles from Cedar City. It is a mini Bryce Canyon equally picturesque but on a smaller scale. Very worth while checking it out.
The rock formations of Cedar Breaks are nearly as beautiful as those of Bryce Canyon, but most of the park is preserved as wilderness, so the casual visitor has only the short scenic road along the top of the cliffs and a handful of viewpoints...More
Had no idea this place existed. We were driving down to St. George and had planned to visit Kolob Canyons but found out that the road was closed for several weeks for repairs. We looked for an alternative and found this online. Seemed to have...More
It is hard to describe the grandeur and awesomeness of the Cedar Breaks. It is a short drive from Brian Head to the vistas that await you, All the shades of red & grey rocks will take time to digest. As you spend time to...More

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 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.
