CEDAR CITY, Utah — The roads to and through Utah's Cedar Breaks National Monument opened Monday after a busy winter season.

According to the National Park Service, the roads reopened sooner than normal due to a limited snowpack, and "thanks to the hard work of the Utah Department of Transportation crews."

Visitors who drive through the park are still advised to be cautious as snow and ice patches still cover many of the paths.
