What You Should Know
The Cedar City area is at a higher elevation and therefore a great way to avoid the scorching sun that hits southern Utah in the summer. This makes it a much better option for young kids. However, we have yet to truly explore the area as to what is family friendly. If you know of more information that other families would find useful, please click on the contribute information tab and let us know.
Brian Head, The Over Look Area
The climbing in this area is pretty amazing. However, the trail is a steep downhill path that would be too dangerous and difficult for a young child and the landing would provide no room for your child or baby. We, however, were able to climb here because we had a group of adults. We had two adults stay where the cars were parked to play with the kids and took turns climbing – this was possible because the approach was only about a minute or two.
Additional Family Activities
There is primitive camping all over the area and right next to the climbing. There is also camping at Cedar Breaks National Monument which you pass on your way there and is about 15-20 minutes away.
There are many labeled trails in the area with beautiful views. They include trails for horseback, hiking, and mountain biking.
