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.

Cedar Breaks was by far our favorite park we visited on our 10 day motorcycle trip to tour Southern Utah. The most incredible amount of beauty compacted into a small place in comparison to the other parks.

Magnificent!! Well worth the trip. Ranger talks and trails. About 30 minutes East of Cedar City; less than an hour West of Red Canyon and Bryce National Park

Stunning views! Small gift shop and several overlooks. We visited in morning and roads were covered with layer of snow. Easy parking.

A much smaller but more accessible version of Bryce. There aren't many hiking opportunities, but if you're traveling with someone who has mobility issues, this is the place. There are 3-4 drive up vistas that are breathtaking. No big crowds, no need for a shuttle.

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.
