Yesterday was Sunday, and a good day to head up into the mountains early as the tourist traffic does not get busy until a bit later in the day. There also has been road construction on the route, which doesn’t happen on the weekends. A perfect time to go up to Cedar Breaks National Monument!
I hiked the Rampart trail, which is a 4 mile out and back with a significant elevation change. It skirts the edge of the canyon. The hike out goes down, and is quite pleasant. One must climb back up on the way out, and takes more time and is quite strenuous. Best to do it in the early morning when it is cooler!
Here are some photos and video of my really nice morning.
