A visit to Cedar Breaks is a great escape for the summer heat in the valley. The views are outstanding. There is so much to see! The hikes around the edge is fantastic and an easy hike. The visitor center is quite instructive regarding the...More

We hiked several trails. There are some hidden gems. Due to high elevation, it is much cooler than that in the valley. Great for short stops.

It is gorgeous all year round but when the snow falls and covers the mountains and surrounding scenery, it is hard not to get lost in it's beauty!

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. We...More

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.

Worth the trip up the mountain! The drive isn’t at hairy as it may seem. Once you get past a couple switchbacks, it’s smooth sailing. So glad I went.

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

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... 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.
