Park facilities, including the campground, restrooms and visitor center are closed for the season. UT 148 will remain open until snow forces its closure. Until that time regular traffic is permitted, but caution is advised in winter conditions. More »
A five-mile scenic drive runs through Cedar Breaks and provides views of the lush meadows and subalpine forests of the Markagunt Plateau. Please do not drive into meadows, which are easily damaged. Speed limits are reduced throughout the Monument to protect visitors and wildlife. Be alert, as deer and other animals frequently cross the road.
Cedar Breaks has three hiking trails, which accommodate all levels of hikers. Try the half-mile campground trail for an easy walk. Explore the looping two-mile Alpine Pond Trail and view wildlife beneath the shade of spruce and fir trees. Or climb the hills of the four-mile Spectra Point Trail and admire the scenery along the rim of the amphitheater. Click here for more information about these trails.
