Cedar Mesa

Special Recreation Management Area - Utah

Cedar Mesa is a popular area for hiking and backpacking to see Ancestral Puebloan cliff ruins and rock art in a natural setting. Many miles of spectacular canyons lined with cliffs cut across the mesa. Some ruins are amazingly inaccessible, perched high on ledges and under overhangs. On its eastern edge the mesa's caprock dips sharply downward toward Comb Wash. Many canyons cut through this area. Other attractions include the scenery and wildlife, as well as the solitude of desert canyons.
