Trail Overview

This is a well-graded two-lane dirt road leading to the Cedar Mountain Recreation Area. The road begins near Cleveland, Utah, traveling for about 20 miles to reach the Cedar Mountain Recreation Area. The area overlooks the San Rafael Swell with good views of Mexican Mountain and The Wedge to the south. The road begins in ranchland and open range at 5,800 feet in elevation near Cleveland, slowly ascending through pinion and juniper to 7,659 feet at the Recreation Area. Cedar Mountain Recreation Area includes multiple overlooks, a pit toilet, and a picnic area. There are many dispersed camping sites on BLM land along the road as well as one large area across the road from the picnic area. There's good cell coverage likely due to the cluster of towers nearby. The road can become rutted when wet after rain or snow. The higher portion of the trail may be snowy in the winter. Cleveland, Utah, has a small general store with basic supplies and gas pumps. The Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry National Monument is nearby.
