Monsoon season  Sucess!

Picked cedar breaks for camping because it was at 10000 feet and wouldn't be too hot in high summer. Was correct, no heat...just pounding rain and thunder storms the like which haven't been seen since bibical times. Every. Freakin. Night.

Other than being hit with a 500- year storm and the roads flash flooded out, it was a good time on the uncrowded tourist trails. A short drive to Bryce Canyon and Zion too.

Totally worth it.

Wonderful backcountry skiing  Sucess!

My wife Penelope and I skied to Cedar Breaks NM from Brian Head in late January 2016. As this was mid-week, there were no other people in the Monument. The winter scenery from the 4 viewpoints along the rim was really great and we had most wonderful 8 miles RT of AT touring. The place is fabulous in winter.

Very uncrowded and peaceful  Sucess!

Despite being a Saturday in late June, Cedar Breaks was uncrowded and peaceful. My wife and I did all of the "advertised" above-the-rim trails, including the Ramparts Trail in the afternoon, which we practically had to ourselves. The area is amazing -- walking along the rim and seeing green forests with streams, animals, and flora on one side, while seeing the breaks dropping off on the other side, is an experience unlike any other. I hope to make it back to do an overnighter on the Rattle Creek trail on the north end of the park.

Been Here A Couple Of Times  Sucess!

The Alpine Pond Trail in June still had lots of snow. And we really enjoyed seeing the bristlecone pines, even though the older ones are "mostly dead".
