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.

We visited 10-19, a cloudy day, a bit chilly but the view was awesome! Visitor center was closed but Rangers were working with students so we learned a lot from listening in!!

I tried to visit Cedar Breaks many years ago, but was snowed out. It's at 10,000'. This year, had a nice surprise. I'm as happy here as Bryce, and it's very easy to get to...unless there's snow.

Was staying close to Cedar Breaks and decided to take a side trip to see it! So worth the extra few miles we drove to get there!

Visited whilst in Cedar visit. We found it say it is as good a Bryce Canyon. It was not as busy. So thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is a nice area to drive through on State Highway 143. We chose this route from Bryce Canyon to Cedar City and it was well worth it. We travelled through in late August and barely saw another vehicle. The scenery through Cedar breaks is...More

The trails offer different elevations, so the flora changes as your elevation changes. There are very photogenic rock formations as well as amazing trees. Your National Park Pass works here.

Stopped by for a short time, but was thoroughly impressed by the views! I’m pretty sure I ended up taking a ton of photos from every possible angle I could get behind the tail. You get a 270 degree view of the area and can...More

Took in Cedar Breaks when we made a detour from Tropic to Springdale. Very glad we took the scenic route instead of the more direct one. It was a lovely drive through Cedar Breaks; great scenery and not crowded. As others have mentioned it is...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.
