Absolutely amazing views and great shorter trails through charming woods and meadows with more great views of the canyon.

Beautiful View! It is a bit steep, but we took a 5 year old and a 3 year old and they made it :-)

Alpine Pond - Lower Loop Trail

Lower loop was still covered with lots of snow and mud in spots. Manageable but got shoes wet. Pond is pretty. Upper loop was dry but didn't have as nice of a overlook of the canyon as the lower loop.

Great trail. Moderate difficulty. 4 miles total if you go to the second overlook. A little of everything. Beautiful overlooks, wildlife (marmots), flowers, pine forests. A bit steep in parts and 2 feet wide in some other spots with steep drop offs to the side of the trail so not for anyone with impaired mobility or young kids. Overall beautiful place.

Loved this trail. Absolutely beautiful and and easy one for our 5year old daughter. We saw a family of dear on the trail and plenty of chipmunks. Easy, fun, relaxing. Bring a sweatshirt. Even in the summer it can be pretty chilly.

Cedar Breaks National Monument is breathtaking, and not nearly as busy as nearby Bryce Canyon National Park. Amazing views!

Alpine Pond - Figure 8 Loop

GO IN JULY!!!...The wildflowers are at their peak and add a ton to the scenery on the trail. The lower loop of the trail is the more scenic of the two, winding through forest and fields of wildflowers and passing by the occasional view of the breaks. The pond is best described as peaceful. Great spot. Bring the mosquito repellent. The lower trail is overgrown at some parts and I recommend long pants as some of the overgrown plantlife is thorny. The upper loop basically parallels the highway and the passing traffic. Less impressive than the lower loop.

This was a spectacular view of the Cedar Breaks Amphitheater. The hike was about 4 miles round trip with the majority of the up hill climb on the return trip. I thought is was moderate to easy and did the whole walk in under two hours. Great scenery.

This is a great ride for downhill lovers. If you can handle the steep grade and the loose rocks you'll love it. The trail has some amazing scenery as well as being known in Brian Head as a downhiller's dream come true. It'll work your shoulders and legs and you won't be disappointed. Watch out for the altitude though. It'll kick your butt if you're not ready for it.
