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.

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.
