A backpack route that begins at Crystal Spring in Dixie National Forest and ends in Cedar Breaks National Monument with several trail options. The portion of the hike that falls within the national monument is a Research Natural Area and is closed to camping. This area escaped the heavy grazing pressure that damaged most other plant communities on the Markagunt, and it contains species that are found nowhere else in the area.

Wonderful area to get away from it all. The life saw was either planted or walked on 4 legs. Plenty of water and solitude.
