UT 148 Closed
Utah Highway 148, the main road through Cedar Breaks National Monument, is closed for the winter season. The route is groomed as a snowmobile trail until mid-March.
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.
