Best Time of Year: Jun 01 - Nov 01

A picturesque walking trail, located in Cedar Breaks National Monument, leads to a surreal alpine pond. Perfect in the summer to view wildlife and wildflowers. Early in the season this trail may have drifts of snow or be muddy.

This loop trail forms a figure-eight through forest and meadows. There are multiple ways to experience this trail. Starting at the trailhead, you can start on the lower trail for excellent views of the amphitheater or the upper trail for views of meadows of native wildflowers, spruce-fir-aspen forest, and ancient deposits of volcanic materials. The lower trail also leads to Alpine Pond, just after the pond, you may choose to take the cut-off connecting to the upper trail to return to the trailhead (one-mile round trip option) or continue on the lower trail till it connects with the upper trail and then return to the trailhead (two-miles round trip option).
