About

Cedar Breaks Information

Resting on top of the Colorado Plateau at over 10,000 feet in elevation, a breathtaking view at Cedar Breaks National Monument awaits.

Millions of years of sedimentation, uplift, and erosion are carving out this giant amphitheater, that spans some three miles, and is more than 2000 feet deep. Chiseled from the variegated Pink Cliffs (Claron Formation) near Cedar City, Utah, Cedar Breaks National Monument preserves a deep canyon of rock walls, fins, spires, and columns. The rim of the canyon is forested with islands of Englemann spruce, subalpine fir, and aspen, separated by broad meadows of brilliant summertime wildflowers.
