Cedar Breaks National Monument, UT – Join us at Cedar Breaks this August 22 to celebrate the park’s 84th Anniversary, and a ribbon cutting formally designating our new paved ADA-ABA accessible Sunset Trail! After the celebration will be birthday cake and a ranger guided stroll down the Sunset Trail.
Using the Antiquities Act, Franklin D. Roosevelt designated Cedar Breaks a National Monument on August 22, 1933. Since then, this area and the plants and animals that call it home have flourished under the support and protection of numerous park employees and volunteers. The visitor experience has improved as well, with new programs, events and park features added every year.
Cedar Breaks’ most recent improvement is the newly built Sunset Trail. This easy two-mile round trip paved ADA-ABA accessible trail leads visitors past the Point Supreme picnic area and campground and ends at the Sunset Overlook. Built to offer all ages and abilities the opportunity to enjoy a walk in the woods and avoid steep grades, this trail provides gentle slopes and offers many rest areas. The path is also great for children, the elderly, those using mobility devices, those wanting a pleasant stroll or those wishing to avoid mud and dirt. Do not miss the views seen from the end of the Sunset Trail. They are stunning.
This event is free and open to the public. Come celebrate Cedar Breaks and its efforts to make the park accessible for all!
