The National Park Service is excited to announce the return of guided snowshoe walks at Cedar Breaks National Monument. The guided walks will begin Saturday, January 21, 2023 and continue through March. Two walks will be offered each Saturday and Sunday with an afternoon walk on Fridays. Snowshoes and poles will be provided for participants; reservations are required.

Although the roads through the park are closed in the winter there are still a variety of ways to experience the rim environment of the park. Visitors can access the park by snowshoes, cross-country skis, and snowmobiles. The guided snowshoe walks provide an introductory experience to this winter recreational activity. The walks are about 90 minutes in length and involve a 1 mile walk with a formal ranger program about halfway through the walk.

Winter visitors may access the park at any time on their own. Snowmobiles are only permitted on the marked, groomed path through the park. Staying on the marked path ensures a safe and enjoyable recreational experience for visitors while protecting park resources such as plants and wildlife.

Due to limited parking and equipment, reservations are required for the guided walks. Reservations can be made by emailing or by calling 435-986-7120. Requests for reservations will be confirmed by the Friday prior to the scheduled walk. Visitors are encouraged to make their reservation as soon as possible as spaces are limited. Programs may be cancelled due to weather.
