The topography of Cedar Hills varies significantly. With the many annexations of land from both the lower areas and the hillside zone into Cedar Hills in recent years, the City's elevation ranges from lower than 5,280 ft. to greater than 5,280 ft. The elevation could be listed as several points. Choosing the altitude of 5,280 ft. is more for notoriety than substance---we are Utah's Mile-High City. Also, one of the holes at the Cedar Hills Golf Club is named Mile-High because it (#14) is actually a 5,280 feet above sea level.
