Often it is forgotten after spending a full day in one of many Moab's destinations. But please make sure to enjoy the unique view that you all will recognize from movies and/or commercials.

It takes about 40 minutes drive from Moab to get to the Dead Horse Point. Plan to come early before sunrise and see the changes as the sun rise. AMAZING. During the day and in the afternoon the view is still great but the sun...More

Views here are absolutely breathtaking. Keep in mind this is a state park so if you got a national park pass to visit other parks in the area, they do not work here but the cost is minimal. Totally worth it to go here and...More

This park is easy to do since it is at the entrance to Canyonlands. But there are many people and buses and the view is much better on down the road in Canyonlands. Stop by if you wish, but be sure to keep going!

Hit Canyonlands and then stop at Dead Horse in the afternoon to finish out your day and watch one of the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see in your life.

Whenever we are in the Moab area, we make a point to stop at this park. The views are spectacular, and the hikes are mostly pretty easy. The overlook of the Colorado River is not to be missed. And for a state park, the visitor's...More

Everyone is talking about Arches and Canyonland ... but Dead Horse Point Dtate Park is absolutely worth it! Weather was perfect late November ... and no crowds! Great family trip for Thanksgiving weekend.

If you have the time, add Dead Horse Point to your itinerary. It is spectacular, and though near Canyon Lands-different. We hiked sections of the rim trail, and it was quite beautiful.
