Cedar Breaks Yurt Hot Coco
At the beginning of January you can find volunteers at the Yurt located at the Alpine Pond Trailhead each Saturday handing out hot coco to all the visitors. Perfect to warm up after an adventure such as snowboarding, sledding, skiing, or snowshoeing.
Winter At Cedar Breaks
Due to heavy snowfall, Highway 148 is normally closed during the winter. Luckily, it becomes a groomed trail perfect for snowshoeing and cross country skiing throughout the park. Enjoy Cedar Breaks red rock formations, and explore the trail as far as you’d like for free (or very cheap).
