Cedar Canyon is just 12 miles from Cedar Breaks National Monument, with hiking trails, guided tours and breathtaking scenery.

Just outside Cedar Breaks is the Ashdown Gorge Wilderness Area, where hikers will find 10 miles of trails and the Twisted Forest, a stand of ancient bristlecone pine.

The 34-mile Virgin River Rim Trail passes near the campground and is open to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.
