Sight

The view at Cedar Breaks National Monument is nothing short of spectacular. It shares much of the personality of the more famous Bryce Canyon, but is a mere 45 minutes off of I-15. If you can get there in springtime, it also arguably has the best wildflower collection in all of Southern Utah

 Guide

Cedar Breaks National Monument is a great spot to see some of the greatest that nature has to offer, from geology to botony to astronomy.

There is a short walk from the parking lot to the actual overlook, with a classic log cabin converted into a visitors center.  There are several short hikes that will take you through some of the views, and give you plenty of opporunity to view some of the local flora and fauna.

This scenic overlook is only accessible by car during certain times of the year, and the road is generally closed from about October to May.  If you are up for a cross-country skiing, snowshoing, or snowmobiling trip then you can see it year round.  Take this into consideration as you are planning your trip.

Camping is available at the Point Supreme Campground nearby.

There are lots of different events available including art festivals, the wildflower festival, and several star parties.  Check out the park website for additional information.

The fall colors are amazing - make sure to catch both the wildflowers and the display put on by the autumn aspen trees!
