This is a State Park so the National Park Land Pass doesn’t allow entry. Entry fee is inexpensive and the views are well worth your time and money.

If you are going to Canyonlands this is a good side trip. The park building has great facilities and displays. The prime viewing area is a good hike from the center, but you can drive there as well so do it. You won't be sorry.

Stopped here on the way into Canyonlands/Island in the Sky and were very pleased we did! Stunning scenery - a geology lesson which makes you feel insignificant in the evolution of the Earth. Guide books will tell you about the dead horse legend and about the Thelma and Louise film and supposedly driving their car off the cliff here.

We went because we were in the area and there is so much publicity about all the movies shot here. The history of how this point got its name is very sad however the view of the Colorado River from here is great. Good but not my favourite place in the Moab area. Canyonlands or Arches are my favourites, but... More

Technically this is not in the National Park, but it should be. The views are stunning and easily rivals grand view point in terms of scenery and beauty. It's a must see when in Moab.

We drove out here after a long afternoon of sightseeing in Canyonlands and were wondering if we should just bag it. So glad we didn't! What a spectacular view - well worth the drive. We were advised by our zip line guide to drive up at sunset which we didn't end up doing, but I wish we had - I... More

We toured many Nat Parks for 2 weeks and the view from Dead Horse Point was my favourite . Quite stunning........a must see. One of the lessor known places to visit. A good Visitors Centre as well .

We did a relatively easy bike trail here (newly opened in 2013 I believe) - very well worth it and the views are awesome.

This is worth a quick visit if you are staying the the Moab area. As stated before this is a state park. There is drive along the park with lots of different views. We spent there about an hour. We went late in the afternoon and the crowds were small. Watch out for wildlife as you drive in and out... More

This is not in Canyonlands, but it is close, in a Utah State Park. What that means is you have today another $10 per car to get in. But it is well worth the cost to see this spectacular view of the river on a promontory that offers you a view that does not reach 270 degrees but gets close.... More
