Overview

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 have been to Cedar Breaks on two separate visits 30 years apart, and we love it there. The vibrant vermilion "hoodoo" rock formations are very similar to those at Bryce Canyon National Park, but are concentrated in a smaller area. Cedar Breaks is less...More

We passed through not knowing what we were in for. Perhaps one of the most beautiful places we've seen. The wildflower meadows were in full bloom. If I could rank this 6 out of 5 stars I would.

The Monument is a marvel of earths forming. You can see where giant faces have collapsed to form this part of the high altitude mountains. You are standing at close to 10,000 feet looking down at this grandeur.

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.
