Officials from Cedar Breaks National Monument near Cedar City in southwest Utah said they will reopen facilities such as restrooms and the information center based on federal Opening Up America Again guidelines and in coordination with the state, local public health officials and park partners.
All trails remain closed due to snowdrifts, fallen trees and to protect park resources, according to a statement from Cedar Breaks. Parking lots have been plowed but snow or mud might be present and visitors are asked to use caution.
Point Supreme, Sunset View, Chessman Ridge, and North View overlooks are accessible for taking in views of the canyon, according to Cedar Breaks officials.
As a reminder, heavy vehicles are prohibited throughout the monument. A heavy vehicle is defined as any vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating greater than 26,000 pounds. Road signs outlining the weight restriction are posted on all routes leading to the monument to remind trucks and other heavy vehicles to use alternate routes.
