Upcoming Events

There is always something to do at Cedar Breaks from our annual festivals to our Star Party activities. You are sure to find an activity just for you.


Cedar Breaks offers three trails accommodating all skill levels. Whether its a shady stroll through the forest or a hike along the rim, our trails have something for everyone. There is also a fourth, more strenuous trail just north of the park for experienced hikers.


Cedar Breaks offers a spectacular camping experience at 10,000 feet elevation. Ranger-led evening programs are offered on weekends in the 26-site campground.

Ranger Programs

Join a Park Ranger to learn more about Cedar Breaks National Monument. Topics include geology, animals, plants, human history, and more. Programs include guided hikes, interpretive talks, and evening programs at Point Supreme Campground. All programs are free. Check with the Visitor Center for times, places, and subjects.

Wildflower Festival & Fall Colors

Cedar Breaks is an excellent location for wildflower walks in the summer and brilliant leaf color in autumn. Visit Cedar Breaks during our annual Wildflower Festival in July. Late September to early October offer the best views of leaf colors on Cedar Mountain. Cedar Breaks was rated by USA Today as "one of the top ten places to experience fall colors" in the United States.

Star Parties

To celebrate and share the beauty of our dark night skies, Cedar Breaks hosts an annual series of "Star Parties." Star parties take place at Point Supreme overlook, and are free of charge. Telescopes are provided for viewing, although visitors with their own telescopes are invited to bring them along.

Junior Ranger Program

During your visit, make sure to stop by the Visitor Center to pick up your Junior Ranger booklet. Once completed, see a Ranger to receive your badge!

Plein Air Art Event
Artists are invited to paint in the park, and offer free painting demonstrations for the public at Point Supreme! Come see nature in the act of inspiration!

Winter Activities

Cedar Breaks is open in winter! When several feet of snow cover the roads and meadows, Cedar Breaks becomes a paradise for snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling.
