Sunset View is the highest of the viewpoints at Cedar Breaks National Monument on Highway 148 right between Highway 14 and Highway 143. It is a viewpoint with comparative solitude compared to Inspiration Point or Sunset Point at nearby Bryce Canyon National Park, or even Point Supreme, less than a mile to the south of Sunset View. Like the rest of Cedar Breaks, it is a fantastic pit stop for travelers en route between Bryce Canyon and Cedar City. It should be noted, however, that with an elevation of over 10,500 feet, the weather will play a major role in how you get to Sunset View and the rest of Cedar Breaks. Highway 148 is not plowed during the winter, and it is about a 4-mile trek from any plowed road to access Sunset View via snowmobile, snowshoe, or backcountry skis for the greater part of the year.
Sunset View offers a view that is very comparable to Point Supreme. There is no signage from Highway 148; rather, you will have to keep an eye out for a small parking pullout on the west side of the road between Chessman Ridge overlook and the visitor center. From there it is only about a hundred feet to the edge of the small viewpoint. The viewpoint presents a similar vantage point to Point Supreme, with the best views down into the canyons to the west and toward a plethora of hoodoos to the south.
