Adventure Description

Adventure Description

At 10,350 feet above sea level, Point Supreme is an excellent viewpoint and the pride of Cedar Breaks National Monument. Located just off UT-14 on the way from Interstate 15 and Bryce Canyon, Point Supreme shows striking similarities to Inspiration Point in Bryce Canyon National Park. This Point Supreme amphitheater is deeper, however, and you are unlikely to compete for views with hoards of visitors such as those that see Inspiration Point each year. Because of its location, Point Supreme is a great side trip for those traveling to Bryce Canyon. It is also near Zion National Park, which is around 40 miles due south of Cedar Breaks as the crow flies.

Point Supreme shares a parking lot with the visitors center for Cedar Breaks National Monument, and both are adjacent to the Cedar Breaks Campground. The campground offers 25 campsites, 10 of which can be reserved in advance during the summer season. While Point Supreme is a great place for snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and backcountry skiing in the winter, it (like all of Cedar Breaks National Monument) is not accessible by car during the snowy winter months. Additionally, the visitors center is not staffed from October through March.
