The Cliffs’ propensity for what geologists call “differential weathering” culminates at Cedar Breaks National Monument and Bryce Canyon National Park where colossal amphitheaters are stuffed with ornate erosional features that defy the imagination. But you don’t have to visit the national parks to mingle with the hoodoos. Here at the absolute terminus of the Paunsagunt Plateau, you can toe the edge of the Pink Cliffs and stand spellbound by the intricacies of erosion. Also, you’ll stare out over a vast region of mammoth terraces incised by rivers and bound by scarps called the Grand Staircase. Tread: Dirt, sand, and rock peppered doubletracks.
