Plan A Field Trip

Entrance Fees

Most groups visiting for educational activities will not be charged entrance fees provided they are sponsored by accredited educational institutions. A fee waiver or fee exemption should be requested two weeks in advance. For forms and guidelines, please go to our Academic Fee Waivers page.

Student Groups:

Fee waivers are granted to educational institutions whose curriculum relates specifically to the resources at Cedar Breaks National Monument. Applications and guidelines may be obtained by going to our Academic Fee Waivers page, or by calling the park at (435) 586-9451. All applications must be received three weeks prior to anticipated trip. Recreational field trips do not qualify for a fee waiver.


If your group plans to hike, we recommend adequate supervision (one teacher/adult per 10 students for younger groups). Please ensure your students stay on the trails for their own safety as well as reducing the impact on the natural or cultural resources around them.

For more information on trails in the park, visit our hiking page.

Ranger Programs

Ranger programs are available upon request. For regularly scheduled Ranger programs, visit our upcoming events & calendar page.


  • Be prepared! Students should wear sturdy shoes and be prepared for wind, rain, snow and temperatures 30 Degrees cooler than the Cedar City area. Also keep in mind the sun's UV rays are more intense at higher elevations. Remember to wear your sunscreen. Bring rain gear on cloudy days. Each child should carry a water bottle if you plan to hike within the Monument.
  • Restrooms are available mid-May to late October by the entrance station near the Visitor Center parking lot. Visit our Current Conditions Page to see if restrooms are currently available. Restrooms are not available along the trails. Use restrooms before hiking.
  • Picnicking is available 1/4 mile north of the Visitor Center parking lot. See a ranger for more detailed information about the picnic areas. Please remember to search the area for litter when finished. Use recycling bins for aluminum cans and plastic bottles. Please do not feed any of the wildlife within the Monument.

Help Preserve Cedar Breaks

To ensure the protection of Cedar Breaks and a memorable experience, please follow these guidelines.

  • Choose the Right Trail: Choose a trail that is best suited for the size, age, and ability of your group.
  • Stay on Established Trails: Walking off established roads and trails can trample fragile native plants and increase the rate of erosion. On the Specta Point trail, walking near the edge off the trail can be hazardous. The rocks near the edge are unstable and could break away from the main rock at any time. Please stick to the trail for your safety and the protection of this natural resource.
  • Do Not Feed Wildlife: Feeding wild animals is illegal and can cause injury or death to the animal or the human. Keep your distance. Keep wildlife WILD.
  • Take Only Pictures, Leave Only Footprints: Enjoy rocks and flowers, but leave for others to enjoy too.
  • Carry Out All Trash: Cedar Breaks is your park. Keep it clean and beautiful.
