We made a loop from Cedar City. Take UT 14 east over 15 miles to UT 148. Turn left (north), driving through all of Cedar Breaks National Monument. (The first viewpoint at the entrance station is the best and offers views of Brian Head over the very dissected terrain of the breaks.) When you are almost through the park, go left onto UT 143, and watch for the Brian Head sign within the first mile beyond the park. Turn right at the sign and drive 3 miles on the good gravel road to the summit area.

Park and walk about 50 feet to the benchmark in the center of the observation structure. When satisfied, return to pavement on 143 and continue north to I-15 at Parowan, which is about 15 miles north of Cedar City.
