Cedar Breaks National Monument spans a total area of approximately 6,200 acres of land that is located in Iron County and in the southwestern region of Utah. To get to the main entrance to the park, visitors can use several different routes including taking the UT 143 east if they are coming from a southbound direction using Interstate 15.
If coming from a northbound direction using Interstate 15 then it is better to take UT 14 east for 18 miles before taking UT 148 north for an additional 4 miles before getting to the National Monument. The park was established on August 22, 1933, and is managed by the National Park Service. When visitors get to the national monument, they can find several attractive features to engage their different interests.
First, visitors can get to see the Wasatch Formation, which is an enormous natural amphitheater that has been eroded into the variegated Pink Cliffs that are approximately 2,000 feet thick at this spot. Secondly, visitors can also get to see how millions of years of erosion, sedimentation, and uplift have formed a deep canyon of rock walls, spires, columns, and fins, that span about three miles.
Besides these attractions, the national monument is also a great place to experience recreational activities like snowmobiling, hiking, cross-country skiing, auto touring, and camping. Visitors can also get to enjoy several conveniences at the park including the campground, picnic area, visitor center, self-guided tours, and restrooms.
Dog owners can bring their tail-waggers into Cedar Breaks National Monument, but specific rules need to be followed. For instance, all dogs must be on a leash or enclosed in a secure place. The leash should not be more than six feet in length. Additionally, dog owners should be aware of the areas of the park that are not accessible to them and to their dogs. In most cases, park buildings are off-limits to dogs.
