A ranger led Star Party will be held following the hike starting at 8:30 pm going to 11:00 pm. Go on a laser guided tour of the night sky and gaze at celestial objects through park telescopes. Those wishing to stay after the hike welcome to attend. This event is covered by your park fee. Last year the Northern Lights were visible at one of these star parties...maybe we'll get lucky!

The Cedar Breaks Wild Flower Festival starts this day so make sure to have your camera handy! There are more than 300 different flowers that grow within the boundaries of CBNM. 

Please bring minimum 1 liter of water. We dehydrate faster at higher elevations. Bring your own snacks and food sufficient to your needs. There are not facilities that sell food within the park. There is potable water at the pay station. 

***As with all GWH events, you must sign the GWH waiver before attending – it takes less than a minute to sign, and once you’ve signed it once you’re good to go for all future meetups***
