Utah Highway 148 to
Cedar Breaks

The road to Cedar Breaks is closed each winter due to snow 

Cedar Breaks Road: ADOT

Highway 148 to Cedar Breaks is usually open from late May until snow forces the road to close sometime after November. 

Your annual America the Beautiful Pass allows you entrance into Cedar Breaks National Monument.

Cedar Breaks National Monument

Cedar Breaks National Monument is a gem hidden high in the forest hills of Utah's Cedar Mountain. Millions of years of uplift and erosion have designed the magnificent three-mile amphitheater of hoodoos making up the craggy landscape. The Claron formations of Cedar Breaks are colorful, red and thick; resulting in a warm hue of about 50 colors. When visiting Utah's National Parks and Monuments, geology quickly becomes an interest to those who have never thought of it before. Cedar Breaks was formed by rapid erosion of soft Teritary lake deposits. The Teritary period is the time after dinosaur extinction when geological events were active and shaped much of the geology we have today. The hoodoos of Cedar Breaks continue to erode, still exposed to the forces of nature, they continue their pattern of freezing and thawing, which carves unique patterns into their delicate structures.

Cedar Breaks Scenic Byway

Five of the Six mile long Cedar Breaks Scenic Byway is located in Cedar Breaks National Monument.  The byway begins at Highway 14 and ends where Highway 143, the Brian Head-Panguitch Lake Scenic Byway, begins.  The Mammoth Creek Road is open year round. This is the road that big trucks are required to take.   The road, when it opens, will begin near Duck Creek and provides access between Highway 14 and Highway 143.

Naturalist NotesNature Notes

The towering trees of the Cedar Breaks area demand your eye, but if you turn your attention to the forest floor you will find there are more than 150 species of wildflowers on show at different times of the year. The flower display begins late in June. Look for the mountain bluebell, lavender fleabane, beardtongue. In late July look for larkspur, lupine, penstemon, columbine and Indian Paintbrush.
