Scenic lookouts

Scenic Viewpoint
“It's absolutely gorgeous! Cedar Breaks is a seasonal must see! The rock formations are very unique and picturesque. In the winter the access highway is often closed due to snow. Absolutely check the road status before you go. It's definitely worth the afternoon to go see. This is one of my personal favorites.”

Scenic Viewpoint
“Hard. For jaw-dropping views over Zion National Park, it’s hard to beat Observation Point. The entire hike is a beauty, but it is challenging. At 8 miles long and with 2300 feet of climbing, it is a steady climb to that final viewpoint. This is a classic Zion trail and well worth your time and effort, especially if you want views out over Angels Landing and the rest of Zion National Park. 8 Miles”

Scenic Viewpoint
“This is a wonderful day trip from Park City during the warmer months. It is a short 1.5 hour drive from Park City to Sundance, and then continue past the Sundance Resort to the Stewart Falls trailhead. It's a moderate but very scenic 6.7k hike (up and back the same way) to the falls. Good for the whole family.”
