Cedar Breaks Ranger Programs

The national park service at Cedar Breaks offers daily seasonal programs free to visitors. As the snow melts away and spring arrives it is time to enjoy the high mountain air of Cedar Breaks. The 10,000' high alpine meadows of wildflowers and billowing aspens are as much a part of the ranger talks at Cedar Breaks as the magnificent hoodoos and rock sculptures. Enjoy this hidden part of Utah, high atop Cedar Mountain, while spending the day in a non-commercial and rustic park.

Geology Programs

Geology talks are offered from late May to mid-October between 10 am and 5 pm daily. Meet at the Point Supreme viewpoint. If weather and trail conditions permit, then a Cedar Breaks ranger will guide a 2 mile round-trip walk/talk along the rim of the amphitheater or present a talk at Point Supreme. Along the rim walk, the world's oldest species of tree, the Bristlecone Pine, is pointed out. The ranger will discuss the unique geology of Cedar Breaks as well as the flora and fauna of the park.

Evening Campfire Programs

After sunset, about 9 pm, meet the ranger at the Point Supreme campground amphitheater. Every night during the camping season (mid-June through Labor Day) campfire talks are offered. Check the current schedule at the Cedar Breaks Visitors Center for the topic of the night. It is cool at Cedar Breaks after the sun sets, so bring jackets and enjoy the brisk night air and the warmth of the fire.
