Cedar City, Utah – On Monday, April 4, Cedar Breaks National Monument will close the seasonal snowmobile trail through the park. Snowmobile use inside Cedar Breaks National Monument is restricted to the designated trail along Rim Road (the road through the park). The closure is necessary to begin preparing for the 2022 Summer season, including plowing the park road and removing winter operations signage.

Snowmobile access will resume in the Fall/Winter when sufficient snowfall has once again covered the road surface. Visitors are welcome to continue snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the park while sufficient snow remains. Though snow clearing operations are scheduled to begin on April 4, there is no projected reopening date for Rim Road to vehicular traffic.

The National Park Service expects another busy season at Cedar Breaks. Point Supreme will remained closed throughout the summer as construction resumes on the new visitor contact station. Summer services will resume once the road is cleared and the park’s seasonal workforce is onboard. Additional information on the summer season will be released in the coming weeks.
