Hike the Sunset Trail, Cedar Breaks National Monument

Rate this Adventure 2 miles 100 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Jean-Claude Linossi

Fairly easy walk with very good views of the National Monument and many wildflowers along the trail.

Started the hike at the visitor center. The walk is fairly level and there is not much altitude gain. There are very good views of the park and in the summer there is a profusion of wildflowers. At the beginning of the trail the different wildflowers are labeled.
