From the prominence of Dead Horse Point, 2,000 feet above a gooseneck in the Colorado River, an ever changing landscape unfurls. Immense vertical cliffs meet with canyons carved by ice, water and wind creating a visual masterpiece. Plants and animals surviving on the edge of existence face many challenges of extreme conditions within this high desert environment. Stories of ancient hunters, resting along the cliff tops while knapping chert in preparation for the next hunt, and cowboys of the late 1800's, chasing wild mustangs onto Dead Horse Point, using the narrow neck to block off the natural corral . What story will you discover on your visit to Dead Horse Point State Park?

The view of the river here is gorgeous! Be sure to hike the East Rim Trail from the visitor center and take it all in.

Nice views but I am not sure it's worth going so far off the main road given there are so many other incrediblel thingsto see in the area.

We love Dead Horse Point because of the many different views it offers depending on which cliff you're standing on and at what time of day (sunrise or sunset). The best part about our experience was Kayenta Campground, though. Don't miss the opportunity to stay...More

Many tourists pass this attraction by on their way to the Island in the Sky section of Canyonlands National Park and are unaware that it is one of the two or three grandest viewpoints in the Moab area which says a lot. Don’t complain about...More

This park provides a great reminder to how small we are in this universe. See amazing bluff and canyon formations created by the Colorado River. Take your camera and hope for some overcast skies to get the best photos. Even with a sunny day and...More

The views are quite spectacular from Dead Horse Point. I recommend this state park over Canyonlands National Park. If I were pressed for time this is a great place to visit rather than drive another 30-45 minutes into Canyonlands National Park on hwy 313. The...More

I really recommend this place. The drive to go to the park is already nice, the vistas as the visitors centers as well. But as from the moment you and take a walk, it is stunning. You don't hear a single thing, you feel one...More

Our family visited Moab for Christmas 2017. We visited Arches, Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point. Seeing these places during Winter was a totally different experience than the Summer. Most importantly, there were hardly any other visitors, we had the place nearly to ourselves. The views...More

Unlike most visitors, I wasn't awed by this park. I felt nearby Canyonlands had a much better variety of views and trails. Dead horse has an east rim overview/rim trail - pretty except for the scars of manmade activity, ugh - and a less picturesque...More

Must see if you visit Moab area. You can see Arches, Canyonlands and Dead Horse in a single day if pressed for time.

One afternoon in Dead Horse. Be warned, there’s an oil plant at the entrance and within the park, there is a fertiliser distillation plant. Deeply disappointing environment-wise. Beautiful if you turn your head and camera... More

Its going to be between Moab and Bryce. They are different. Moab has Arches, Colorado river . Bryce has the Hoo Doos and beautiful scenery. Both are great for hiking or just short walk views.
