A miniature Bryce Canyon, this natural amphitheater spans some three miles, and drops 2,000 feet off the plateau toward the town of Cedar City. In summer, the high rim of the canyon is dazzling with verdant forests and brilliant wildflowers. Hiking only along the rim. Open late May through mid October.
