Cedar Breaks National Monument, UT-  Cedar Breaks Scenic Drive known as State Highway 148 and Information Center/Book Store are now open for the summer season. The Information Center hours are daily from 9 AM to 6 PM. The Point Supreme Campground opens on June 2. Visitors, aged 16 and older, are expected to pay a park entrance fee of $6.00 per individual. The Alpine Pond, Spectra Point and Ramparts Trails are currently closed due to excessive snow drifts, fallen trees and to protect park resources from damage. Park overlooks plus the Sunset & Campground trails are open but have snow and mud in some areas, visitors are advised to use caution.

Cedar Break National Monument would also like to remind the public that, heavy vehicles will be restricted from using SR 148. A heavy vehicle is defined as any vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating greater than 26000 lbs. Road signs outlining the weight restriction are posted on all routes leading to the Monument to remind trucks and other heavy vehicles to use alternate routes.

We are looking forward to hosting visitors from across the globe and another cool and colorful summer season in the high country of Cedar Breaks. Throughout the summer, Cedar Breaks will conduct a number of special activities and events.

·  Ranger programs will be offered daily at 10 AM, 1 PM & 4 PM.
·  Junior Ranger Programs will be held Fri-Sunday at 3 PM from June-Labor Day.
·   On Saturday nights from June to Sept 2nd, visitors will be able to join Star Parties held at Point Supreme including laser-guided constellation tours and telescope viewing.
·  Our Annual Bio-Blast held June 23-24 gives the public the chance to assist local scientists with the collection and identification of various birds, bats and bugs found in the park.
