When you visit this place there are two separate aspects. First, the cowboys fencing in the thousands of rejected horses to die of thirst with the river in sight, inexcusable even in a barbaric time. Worse than we treated Indians (well, maybe not in some...More

Very interesting history and great scenery. If you're nearby well worth the trip. If it's too far out of your way spend more time at one of the National Parks.

Must see when in the area. Interesting and nice grounds. Slightly difficult hike around for seniors but beautiful views

Not far from town is this breathtaking view. A short hike to this over look of a bend in the colorado river. The hike back up is a slow steady incline which is very manageable. So worth the trip!

The story behind the name of this place spoiled my visit. What these barbaric, heartless cowboys did with these poor horses, was more than something that I can digest. I could not help it, but every time I looked towards the Colorado River, I always...More

If you're a photographer, get there early for sunrise or an hour or so before sunset. It's breathtaking! Worth the 20-25 min drive from Moab.

There are bike rental places in Moab, Utah which is the "gateway" town for Arches, Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point. I don't know a specific name, I guess just "google" it. I am not aware of a "shuttle" but there are... More
