Wow what a pretty view. Overlooking the canyon below and off into the distance Monument Valley. So worth the short drive off the main highway.

Never grow weary of stopping here if traveling between Capitol Reef and Monument Valley. Pools are nice to wade in or dangle toes, with vistas extending for probably 25 miles.

We'd been advised by friends to take the route to Mexican Hat via this Gem - oh my.....this is mind blowing. The views over the canyon and out towards Monument Valley are beyond anything we could have expected. Did not want to leave. make sure you go the the end of the road and view from both points - simply... More

We rode through it on a Harley. What an experience. Beautiful scenery and such solitude. I felt rejuvenated when we reached the other side.

Well worth the winding drive to get there, try not to encounter an over-ambitious RV en-route! The views from the top are breathtaking and if you like driving up (or down) steep winding roads then you'll love this.

A 3 mile dirt road drive from the highway 261 on top of the Cedar Mesa will take you to the Muley point.

The dirt trail leading to this point is located at a turn off at the top of the Moki Dugway. Often horses are roaming along this road. It can be driven by a passenger car as long as the weather is dry. Its a simply awesome view with Monument Valley in the distance and the San Juan River winding its... More

I was hoping to do some night photography at Natural Bridges National Monument, but had about 5 hours to Sunset. I asked at the visitors center for other places to go and the ranger suggested Muley Point and Valley of the Gods. I never made it to Valley of the Gods. Muley Point is about 10 miles due north of...

We drove out to Miley point and spent about an hour laying on a rock soaking up the view. It's a great place for a picnic.
