Muley Point is 5 miles down a dirt road atop the Moki dugway. It's worth the drive to see, but Goosenecks State Park is more scenic, IMHO.

Truly hairraising. You need a GOOD car, not an RV, and have nerves of steel. That said, it was fabulous for the passenger - the driver had to concentrate. Steep dropoffs, narrow road, no sightlines (just be warned).

For anyone visiting the Mexican Hat, Utah area, this is a short trip that is worth taking. Just getting there is quite an experience. The dirt road road known as the Mokee Dugway takes you to the top of Cedar Mesa through a series of switchbacks and along steep drop-offs (without guard rails). Once at the top of the Mokee... More

Well worth the drive out to this overlook point, from the turnoff just above the Moki Dugway. The view of the San Juan River Goosenecks is high above and better than the outlook points in Goosenecks State Park.

The view from Muley Point of the Valley of the Gods is awe-inspiring and well worth a visit if you're anywhere in the vicinity (granted, there isn't much in the vicinity aside from Natural Bridges National Monument). We took a LONG detour on the way from Bryce Canyon to Moab in order to see the view from Muley Point and... More

There actually appeared to be both the main point and a smaller one just before it to the east. Both offered spectacular views of the San Juan river valley, Monument Valley further south and the Goosenecks down the road. If you’re not afraid of heights, you’ll want to hop from rock to rock, getting as close as you can to... More

Windy and no place for the faint-hearted. Don't camp here during rainstorms else you can't get out on the slippery road, and please pack out all dog and human waste and all trash. Primitive camping. Actually, I wish the turn-off wasn't even marked on the highway and that it wasn't included on TripAdvisor. And please people--STOP BUILDING THOSE STUPID CAIRNS... More

If you travel 95 from the Natural Bridges you will clearly see a nice sign leading to a dirt road to the right (the only none there). A few miles of dust and you will arrive at the lower point where some beautiful photos await. then, continue to the end and you will be at a higher level with a... More

A bit of a long road drive, but worthwhile the effort, be careful on the last bit as the road get very bumpy you will need a 4x4.

An amazing overlook, over the Goosenecks of the San Juan. Straight down 1000 feet, and no railings. Not a great place to let the kids run around, but the view, all the way to Monument Valley and Navajo Mountain, should not be missed.
