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

Pictures nor words can describe the Moki dugway and muley point. The view was marvelous. Three miles of switchbacks on gravel road was a rush and one of the highlights of our trip. Not for the faint of heart or fear of heights.

Access is by way of a not well marked slightly rough dirt road off of UT 261 near Moki Dugway. Well worth the drive. Great views in almost all directions, especially early & on clear days.

An unmarked dirt road at the top of the Moki Dugway takes you to a spectacular view over the goosenecks of the San Juan River with Monument Valley in the distance. There were 4 other vehicles when we went there on a Tuesday in late April. See it before some clowns start charging admission and putting up guard rails.

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.
