Wider and better view than Gooseneck State Park. SUV is recommended. Considering its position, you may see less back light when taking photos. If you plan to drive to Nature Bridge National Monument after visiting Monument Valley by driving UT261, try come here if road condition & your car allowed.

Driving north, there is no sigh for Muley Point. It's the first left once you clear the dugway. If you have driven a bit and wonder if you have missed it, you have. Go back, and yes Virginia, there is a sign that says Muley Point just before the dugway starts. It's a few miles down the dirt road. Just... More

Personally, I think the views from here, though similar, are better than the more well-known Goosenecks (of the San Juan River) State Park, near by (but a few thousand feet lower!) UT-241 diverges SSW from UT-261 at the top of the Moki Dugway, on the S end of Cedar Mesa. It's a flat, easy, 4-mile drive to the end (which... More

This is a one-destination road off of Rt 261 near the Valley of the Gods at the top of the Moki Dugway. We drove a rental SUV over this gravel/dirt road on a clear, dry day and had no problems getting to the point, although I will say it is a bit bumpy and rocky but this IS a dirt... More

Spectacular views of goosenecks on river and monument valley in distance. Road is much smoother than Mukey Dugway, but do not attempt if wet. Would be an impassible mucky mess. Amazing panorama which would probably best viewed about 10am in morning. We arrived after lunch and was getting hazy in distance. It is remote with no services so ensure you... More

Sure it is a gravel road and it is really really rough in spots but this place is an excellent view that I had never heard about until my Father in Law took me. If you need ADA accommodations, sorry you will need to check out the Grand Canyon. But if you don't mind 5 miles of rough road and... More

The view is breath-taking; and it doesn't take very long to stop by and see this. My kids loved it; they thought it was awesome. We were there July 2013, but I saw this many times as a child.

It's a tough road to get to Muley Point on a Harley dresser. But we did it. Found that 20 mph was smoother than 5 mph. Still, you'll take a beating. The view from Muley is what you'd expect. Very picturesque. If you like photography, you'll enjoy the visit. Muley point is about 1,100 ft off the valley floor; and... More

Doable but slightly risky in a normal (non-SUV) car. basically you're driving down the middle of the road on bedrock, and would need to put 2 wheels into sand on either side if something comes the other way (we were lucky, nothing did). Basically, you can get very similar views from the top of the Moki Dugway and Goosenecks State... More

Muley Point is accessed via a turn off from the US-261 at the top of Moki Dugway. The road to Muley Point is about 3 miles and is unpaved - it really is very bumpy and you can't go more than 5 mph, that's the reason why I only gave it 4 rating as really if the road was paved... More
