We took a tip from another biker and took a side trip here while visiting Canyonlands. It's an incredible view and a short ride.

This small state run park is so beautiful,that will impact your imagination.. Nice visitor center with a small outside snackfood truck, then a walk through the trails.....like a walk in the sky. Do not miss this park. To visit before or after visiting Canyonland Park. It is on the same main park road..this is a must go park. Bring your... More

The views of the canyons and painted cliffs are well worth the entry fee. This is a must stop while in Moab. You can either hike out to the point from the visitors center, 3 miles round trip, or drive. If you can hike, do it. You will see things that you won't from the car.

I only give this 3 stars because Canyonlands is much better and right next to Dead Horse. The scenery is basically the same between these 2 parks so I don't think its really worth going to both.

There is a small snack and coffee shop nearby that also sells ice. Camp ground is well maintained with nice bathrooms that have sinks. Please... More

We thought this was a little expensive for what you get. It's the same price as Arches and Canyonlands National Parks but you only get a 3 day pass instead of 7 days. There are a few hikes and overlooks, yes you can see the Colorado River, but not much else.

The amazing view was worth the stop. We did not go on any hikes here but it looked like there were some good options. We also heard it was a good sunset spot but we weren't there at the right time.

About 30 miles outside of Moab, you can find Dead Horse Park. This park has a nice overlook of Shafer Trail in Canyonlands Park.
