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 a couple of times (and attempted to go a few others, only to have the roads closed by snow). It is always a pleasure to be there. And this year we were there at the peak of wildflower season!...More

Definitely a must see. The beauty is breath taking. Make sure to cover the main area and also the pull overs/viewing areas. Rangers and volunteers are so helpful. Right now they are tracking sun spots through telescopes. The colors are wonderful with the red rock

While there are only three lookout, the view is spectacular. There are trailhead for those wh o want a closer look at the meadows and red rock hills.

It is only a very short and flat walk from the visitors center to the main overlook at Cedar Breaks. Since there is still snowpack, you may have to enter from the Brian Head ski resort side.
