Cedar Breaks is only 16 miles away from Pinewoods by car and can even be reached in summer by bicycle or in winter by snowmobile or X-C skis. Originally known by local Native American tribes as the "Circle of Painted Cliffs," the fantastic, richly colored cliffs fold and twist along a canyon rim that rises to over 10, 000 feet with amber and purple tinted slopes and spires filling the 2,500 ft. deep main amphitheater.
The largest known natural bridge in the world, Rainbow Bridge stands 290 feet above the dry stream's bed and spans 275 feet wide. With its deep reddish rock and almost perfect arch below and above, it truly qualifies as a "red rainbow". While considered sacred by many local tribes, it is also known as one of the natural wonders of the world.
Grand Staircase-Escalante is one of the country's largest national monuments comprising nearly 1.7 million acres of pristine mesas, red rock canyons, sandstone cliffs, natural bridges and arches. Within its borders are major paleontological and archeological sites containing fossils and petrified wood along with remnants of prehistoric dwelling and rock art. A multitude of trails offer hiking, backpacking and mountain biking throughout the monuments.
Due to its rare natural spring and expansive grasslands on the Utah-Arizona Border, Pipe Springs became an early pioneer cattle ranch that has now been restored. Along with a dramatic history of Indian skirmishes and survival on the western frontier, it also served as a way station for travelers between St. George and Kanab, Utah.
