We've been to various places nearby in the past but Cedar Breaks has never featured before - what a shame. The road winds up through this park and if coming from the North you will actually have seen all the park before you get to...More

Very similar to Bryce NP but it’s own charm . Colder st the top as over 10,000’. Plenty of free camping in Dixie National Forest.?

We went at a time when all the flowers were in bloom! The formations are amazing! We all loved the views! We definitely want to come again.

Yes, there are “big” national parks nearby, but this national monument shouldn’t be snubbed. It’s not far from I-15 and US 89 and the overlooks, trails, etc. are easily accessible from UT 148 that parallels the amphitheater. A visit to just take in the expansive...More

I drove here last week from St. George in the morning. The drive was great because you can see all the leaves on trees that changed colors, some yellow and some red. It was very cold too, due to the high elevation (10,000 ft). I...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.
