Cedar Breaks National Monument is open year-round, though accessing the park changes with the seasons. Beginning around mid-November each year, Highway 148 and the scenic road through the park (Rim Road) are closed due to snowfall. Highway 143 which enters the park at the north and east entrances is plowed during daylight hours during the winter. These conditions continue until mid to late May each year.
Junction of Highways 14 & 148
Drive on Highway 14 from Cedar City or Duck Creek Village to the junction with Utah Highway 148. A plowed parking lot is maintained at this junction (except during and immediately after snowstorms). Highway 14 is kept open all winter but accessing Cedar Breaks National Monument from this direction requires traveling further distances by foot or snowmobile.
