UT 148 Closed
Utah Highway 148, the main road through Cedar Breaks National Monument, is closed for winter. Until it reopens next spring, we invite all to continue to enjoy the monument on snowshoes, x-country skis, and snowmobiles.
Website Maintenance and Updates
Over the next few weeks, Cedar Breaks' website will be updated. The site will be reorganized, resulting in a better, faster user experience. However, during the update, some pages and links may not be functional. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Lakes and Ponds
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.
Did You Know?
Cedar Breaks National Monument can get about 250 days of freezing temperatures during the year. This freezing process contributes to the erosion that shapes the Cedar Breaks amphitheater.
