Cedar Breaks National Monument – This week’s National Park Getaway

CEDAR CITY, Utah – At 10,000 feet above sea level, Cedar Breaks National Monument takes your breath away. Literally. It offers stunning views of a three-mile wide, half-mile deep amphitheater colored with over 50 different hues. Cedar Breaks is a spectacular place to immerse in abundant fall colors and pristine winter activities.    

During the fall season, the park is ablaze with brilliant colors of quaking aspens that paint the park in golden yellows, sun-drenched oranges, and blazing reds. Cedar Breaks with its surrounding area has been called one of the top ten places to experience fall colors in the United States. Come experience this annual display by touring the monument’s six-mile scenic drive or hiking on one of the many park trails. Read more
