“A stunning out-and-back hike along the rim with amazing views of Cedar Breaks National Monument.”— Adrianne Herzog
Family Friendly Easy access from the Visitor Center and the option to turn around at Spectra Point for a shorter outing with just as many amazing views.
After about a mile, the trail will start to follow the rim more closely and you'll pass a side-trail that brings you to a historic cabin, original to the property. Also, be sure to take the short spur trail that leads to Spectra Point, where you can enjoy the expansive views and learn some more fun facts on the ancient Bristlecone Pines.
From Spectra Point, you'll continue for another mile along the rim. The trail will gradually descend until its end point and while, for the most part, it is very mellow hiking, there are some sections that are somewhat exposed or can feel like there is a drop-off, though they are very do-able. Spectra Point is a great turn-around spot for a shorter hike or you can continue on to the Wasatch Rampart at the end of the Rampart Trail for the full out and back.
