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.

Clear December afternoon...all facilities were closed, as was any entry fee. Stunning scenery well worth a 2+ hour detour off I-15. Just do it if you can!

You don’t have to ski. We came up from seeing the petroglyphs and saw the fire damage on the way to Brian Head. We had a lovely drive up and yes we huffed and puffed a bit!

Is was a very cold and windy day but actually the rim area was slightly less cold than the parking lot, so I was glad we went out there. Did the 4 mile rim hike and the Alpine pond loop - both nice.

We like the Cedar Breaks Monument because it has no crowds and is every bit as stunning as Bryce Canyon, albeit on a much smaller scale. There are several drive-up overlooks and the views are spectacular. A great hike along the rim is the Spectra...More

Headed out to Cedar Breaks in the early evening. Cool. Quiet. Amazing views. Birds above. Birds in Canyon. The sharp colors of the Southwest. The Hoodoos beckoning. Truly worth a visit.

Cedar Break National Monument is a must see when in Southern Utah. Loved the beautiful rock formations and the various colors.
