SNOWMOBILING IN SOUTHERN UTAH

THERE IS PLENTY of snow on the high mountain trails and winter access to some of America’s most unique scenery, make this one of Utah’s premier snowmobile complexes. This complex includes trails leading to the spectacular scenery of Cedar Breaks National Monument.

Below are some specific items of interest about the trails included in the Cedar Mountain Snowmobile Complex. Check with local U.S. Forest Service offices for trail guides and travel maps of ungroomed trails and other areas open to snowmobile use.

High Mountain Trail (A)
This wide, well-groomed trail located high in the Cedar Mountains provides riders with excellent views into Cedar Breaks National Monument. Early American Indians once referred to this enormous red rock amphitheater as the circle of painted cliffs. This is a great trail for riders of all abilities and one of the most scenic in the complex.

Brian Head Trail (B)
Running parallel to State Highway 143, the Brian Head Trail provides snowmobile access to the community of Brian Head and to the Brian Head Ski Area. High mountain views and vistas are everywhere along this trail as it approaches 11,000 feet in elevation. Several side loops and play areas are accessible via this trail.

Cedar Breaks Trail (C)
The wide, well-groomed Cedar Breaks Trail is an ideal ride for snowmobilers wanting to experience the grandeur of Cedar Breaks National Monument. The trail enters the monument and provides winter access to many scenic overlooks. Easy access to this trail is through the Mammoth Summit Trailhead located just off Highway 143, and via the Midway Trailhead located adjacent to Highway 14.
