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...more

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
We couldn’t make it to Bryce Canyon so I did some research to explore something more local. Cedar Breaks turned out to be a breathtaking treasure with the trees turning color. The ride up was filled with stunning scenic mountains and valleys. The canyon amphitheater...More
Cedar Breaks is in many ways a smaller and more intimate version of Bryce Canyon. It is higher in elevation, with the overlooks iat 10300 to 10500 feet of elevation. A short walk uphill will put many out of breath, since most of us do...More
On my adventures in Utah i had the opportunity to see many beautiful wonders and Cedar Breaks was at the top of the list. The beautiful neapolitan peaks and valleys are stunning. Weather you go in early morning or dusk you will get a great...More
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 cleared (though you can still hike in). If UT148 is closed, you can still access North View overlook on UT143, and there is a trail head along the road just north of that overlook for Rattlesnake Creek Trail, which goes along the north edge of the park.

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.

Weather is very unpredictable at this time of year. We had some family venture up to Cedar Breaks a couple weeks ago. The weather was fine in Cedar Valley but they encountered heavy snow on their way up the mountain, tried turning around, went off shoulder and had tires spinning (They are not experienced snow drivers) My advise is check weather and road conditions by calling Utah DOT, Brian Head Ski Resort or Parks department before you head out on your adventure. Also take a 4 wheel drive vehicle, fuel up vehicle before you head out and carry emergency kit (water, granola bars, blankets) with you just in case you get stuck. Might want to check out Snow Canyon - less likely to see snow and warmer climate.
