“A stunning out-and-back run along the rim with amazing views of Cedar Breaks National Monument.”— Adrianne Herzog
After about a mile, the trail will start to follow the rim more closely and you'll pass a side-trail that brings you to a historic cabin, original to the property. Also, be sure to take the short spur trail that leads to Spectra Point, where you can enjoy the expansive views and learn some more fun facts on the ancient Bristlecone Pines.
From Spectra Point, you'll continue for another mile along the rim. The trail will gradually descend until its end point and while, for the most part, it is very mellow running, there are some sections that are somewhat exposed or can feel like there is a drop-off, though they are very do-able. Spectra Point is a great turn-around spot for a shorter run or you can continue on to the Wasatch Rampart at the end of the Rampart Trail for the full out and back.
