Alpine Pond

The Alpine Pond is a natural, spring-fed water source at Cedar Breaks. It may have been formed when a cave collapsed far underground, creating a sinkhole. The sinkhole gradually filled with springwater leaving a perfect water source for many of Cedar Breaks' wildlife species.

The Alpine Pond Hiking Trail provides access to the Alpine Pond.
