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 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.
