Cedar Breaks National Monument is surrounded by the Dixie National Forest. The Southern Paiute called this area the Circle of Painted Cliffs. In winter, the Cedar Breaks Amphitheater, filled with fins, hoodoos and arches, is dusted with snow, highlighting the vibrant red and orange colored sedimentary rock.
Most of the park is closed in winter, except to people partaking in winter sports, but North View Overlook is one of the best views in the park, so we are satisfied with our chilly, New Years Day visit.
Four Points pointer- In order to get here from Duck Creek it is necessary to drive around to the northern section of the 148, since the 148 that runs through the park is not plowed.
