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.

My uncle brought me here. Showed up in a sweatshirt and shorts only to find it 34degrees and snowing!!! Very beautiful. Would have loved to hike, but not my uncle's thing.

We drove from Bryce to Cedar Breaks, skipping Zion for this only to find out at the end that the road is closed. This might have been due to the storm but it should have been clearly stated at the beginning of he highway.

Until the park opens, the only vantage point is from highway 14. Quite an amazing sight, super colorful.

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

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.
