Cedar Breaks National Monument Visitor Center, Cedar City

A natural amphitheater, the rim of Cedar Breaks National Monument Visitor Center rises 3,000 m (10,000 ft) above sea level. Shale, limestone, and sandstone--alternating stripes of orange, gold, white, and brown--run from the rim to the canyon floor. Local Native American tribes called this the Circle of Painted Cliffs. The amphitheater floor is covered with spires, walls, crevices, and cliffs that settlers called "breaks" or "badlands." The rim makes a great spot for hiking and photos.

  • This was an awesome national Park. Restrooms are clean visitor center was cute small and well staffed. The views were awesome. It was kind of neat to see snow even in July.
  • Didnt even know this was here. Went to watch the star watching event, and really enjoyed it. Make sure to bring warm clothes and a blanket, it gets cold up there on 10,000 feet. Thanks to the Park Rangers for talking to all of us.
