Beautiful viewpoint. You can drive right up to the top. Did it in my Prius with careful driving. There is a lower parking lot as well with and out house that we like to start from and walk the road to the top to get a little more exercise since the "trail" at the top is just a little path to the old station and only about 50 yards long.

Took the lower trail. Beautiful views and flowers. My four year old did great.

It’s easier to park on the northern side. Pleasant walk on the higher route, leads to the ridge overlook. Pond was a little scummy so not the best.

Not real exciting, but enjoyable. Upper loop has a rock formation we liked climbing.

Cedar Breaks is a beautiful view and has some very dark skies. A nice park and look then go type of thing. This hike is nice and short but you do not really see anything different.

Top of the world views. Seldom can you peak with so little effort. Had to do it quick, a Missouri boy was feeling the altitude.

Altitude wasn't an issue with the minimal elevation change. Nice views and variety.

Nice, easy hike.

Breathtaking views!

Beautiful views of Cedar Breaks. The switchbacks at altitude are tough, so be prepared. Well marked trail.

Pretty, easy, casual hike. Great overlooks of Cedar Breaks.

If pressed for time, skip the second lookout - it takes an extra hour and is more strenuous than the first half. Very fun hike with spectacular views. Snow on December 28th was packed and fine to walk on with decent shoes.

The view is amazing but the road is too bad. There are lots of big rocks on the road makes it so hard to drive on.

Hiked the upper trail. Just a note, signs said no dogs allowed, even on leash.

Fairly easy

The view is gorgeous but the hike isn't much. We took little kids and had to carry them. It is nothing but steep rocky pathways, the kids slid and fell every time they tried to walk.

Beautiful views! We parked about a mile down from the summit to get a little hike in :)

Lower loop is gorgeous, definitely check it out! Upper is relatively boring but would be good for trail running.

We only had time to do Spectra Point, but it was well worth the mile or so hike each way. It is a bit steep in some places, but easy for a kid to do. You get to walk along the side of narrow cliff and the overlook is beautiful.

The best thing about Cedar Breaks in the summer is the cool temperatures, at least 20 degrees cooler than in Cedar City below. This is really the only moderately difficult hike in the monument. The other options are either very short or very long. The views on this hike are great, but beware that it is pretty much all downhill on the way to Rampart Overlook and you are going to have to climb back up, at an altitude that is going to make it tough if you are not acclimated. Also, note that there are often torrential thunderstorms in the afternoon, with hail possible, and the mud on the trail makes it like you are walking through clay. I did this one year in August and it snowed.

Great views and outlooks!

Beauty of Bryce with peace, wild flowers, and a stream. My 6 year old had no problem and while there are some drops the trails plenty wide so there's never much danger.

The hike leads to Spectra and then onto Rampart. Great views and photo ops, and much less crowded than Zion. Not good for kids- the canyon ledges are sharp. Highly recommend this hike!

Beautiful hike and wide vistas. Mostly shaded and very moderate. Not bad for kids - if you keep the aww from the edges.

Skirts the Cedar Breaks area, goes through some beautiful Aspen groves, drops down into the river gorge. Also passes by flanigan arch, though a lot of people miss looking up and back at it. Long but so worth it, especially in the fall when the leaves are changing. Take two vehicles as this technically comes out on Cedar Canyon Hwy and is 12.6 miles one way... park one car at the end and one at the start.

Beautiful breathtaking views less than a mile from the trail head. Unfortunately there was a good 50"+ of snow and couldn't find the trail anymore. It's gorgeous in the summer as well!
