Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks are stunning places to visit and should be on your itinerary but both are very busy, Bryce in particular. If you want an awesome viewpoint to yourself then head over to Strawberry Point where the pink cliffs and rock formations are a stark contrast to the deep green of the forests behind them. It’s located at the top of Cedar Mountain, near Duck Creek and Cedar City and on a good dirt road off Highway 14.

 

At the top there’s a 100 yard trail (with exposure) onto a narrow finger of rock overlooking thousands of square miles of virgin territory. A great place for a sunset picnic.
