Didn’t know for sure what to expect, but we were recommended to go here. It is small, but what a view. We walked clear out on the rim trail with hardly anyone else out there. Spectacular views with any easy hike.

When visiting Moab, don't miss Dead Horse State Park. Head for the Island in the Sky region of Canyonlands and a few miles before the park entrance take a left to Dead Horse Point. If you are short of time head up to the end...More

The beauty is so overwhelming. Definitely need to take your camera. You will have great photo opportunities. The Colorado and Green rivers make it unique.

If you can only do a limited visit of Moab/Canyonlands, don’t miss Dead Horse Point SP. Great views, easy access, long or short hikes on the rim if desired.

Dead Horse Point was beautiful. The day we went was overcast but the colors were still beautiful. It is not as crowded as the National Parks. We walked out to several overlooks and each had a beauty of their own. We did not have long,...More
