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 views are gorgeous. The sunrise is awesome. We found it is best earlier in the morning for viewing because later in the day it can tend to be hazy. Also bring a jacket (even in summer) because it is extremely windy up there.

We visited Dead Horse Park late in the day after hiking in Canyon lands. We did the Full Moon hike together with 20 more people. It was beautiful and very informative,

This is also a good place for that beginner / advanced beginner mountain biker. Still a few places you have to (well I had to) walk my bike up or down, all in all a great ride. Loops of 3-6-9 miles. Hey they serve coffee and sandwiches here!!! Doesn't get the traffic of Arches, thank goodness, worth the stop. It... More

I love this place! It's so breathtaking. Each time we've come we've stayed just looking at the scenery. Clean park, no hiking required, park and walk right up. Picnic tables are available. It's also known to be in a few movies and shows. Anyone recognize it from the first episode in Westworld?

This is a stunning vista. The LaSalle mountains are on the horizon, and you can try to trace the twists and turns of the river as it goes down towards the Grand Canyon. The colors are beautiful any time of day and particularly exquisite in the early morning or evening light. You can hike out to the overlook from the... More

Awesome panoramic views of the Colorado River canyon near Moab, Utah! It's worth the short drive from Moab. We didn't do much except take in the view even though there are some nice hikes along the rim trail.

We've been to Arches and Canyon lands several times in the past, but had somehow driven right by the turnoff for Dead Horse State Park without a thought. Don't make the same mistake! This park is an easy few mile drive off of the main access road to Canyon Lands, and is well worth the visit. There is a $10... More

It's hard to believe I stumbled across this place only two years ago, when I was a beginner mountain biker searching for approachable trails for my first mountain biking trip to Moab. The mountain bike trails here are very well maintained and have a great variety of trail types - smooth slickrock, alligator back, fast swoopy singletrack, sand traps, you... More
