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 to investigate. There are a couple of trails that connect the viewpoints, but we didn't try any of them.

We visited mid-October when it was bitterly cold, with snow falling. It was well worth it as the scenery was stunning, a smaller version of Bryce.

The views here are magnificent. They have some relatively short and easy walks. However, the ground is uneven and would not be suitable for everyone.

Had no idea this place existed. We were driving down to St. George and had planned to visit Kolob Canyons but found out that the road was closed for several weeks for repairs. We looked for an alternative and found this online. Seemed to have some good reviews so we gave it a try. The short detour from I15 was well worth it! We visited at the beginning of October and the leaves of the Aspen trees were on the turn which added to the already stunning scenery. It would be very easy to breeze through and not pull off into the viewing areas - but this would be a mistake!
The drive climbs very quickly to over 10,000ft - the change in temperature is noticeable.
Check out my photos. . .

It is hard to describe the grandeur and awesomeness of the Cedar Breaks. It is a short drive from Brian Head to the vistas that await you, All the shades of red & grey rocks will take time to digest. As you spend time to sit and watch the cloud shadows spread and recede you will be struck by the majesty that nature provides.

Make the short drive and take the short hike on the lake trail for different perspectives of the Cedar Breaks vistas.

This isn't a well-known place to stop. We took a chance and it was one of the best decisions we made. It so happened that the day before they had their first snowfall of the season...it was earlier and more snow than they had ever had. Just BEAUTIFUL!!! The rangers had made snowmen in different locations. One was right at the overlook which made for breathtaking and fun photos. Watching the ranger raise the American flag among the tall snow filled trees was magical. How lucky were we!!! We were told that the Monument would be closing in a few days, so plan your trip before say the third week of October.

The beauty of the national parks and national monuments Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, Arizona, South Dakota and other parts of the American West is that there aren't two alike. Each has its own character and identity, a different footprint, a different signature attraction that makes it stand out from the rest. Take Cedar Breaks National Monument, for example. It isn't as celebrated as Grand Canyon or Yellowstone or Arches or Canyonlands or Bryce or Zion. It attracts more visitors than some, fewer than others. Located near Cedar City, Utah, it is a natural amphitheater that stretches across three miles with a depth of over 2,000 feet. It is the headwaters of Mammoth Creek, a tributary of the Sevier River. The elevation of the rim of the amphitheater is over 10,000 feet above sea level. The eroded rock of the amphitheater is more eroded than but otherwise similar to formations at nearby Bryce Canyon National Park, Red Canyon in Dixie National Forest and select areas of Cedar Mountain. Its rim visitor center is open from June through October but, because of its elevation, snow often makes parts of the park inaccessible to vehicles from October through May. Established in 1933, the National Monument is located near the west end of the Colorado Plateau and covers the west side of the Markagunt Plateau, the same plateau that forms part of Zion National Park. The area is a form of badlands--canyons, spires, walls and cliffs so steep and confusing that the lands, while of great aesthetic value, are of little utilitarian worth.
