From the prominence of Dead Horse Point, 2,000 feet above a gooseneck in the Colorado River, an ever changing landscape unfurls. Immense vertical cliffs meet with canyons carved by ice, water and wind creating a visual masterpiece. Plants and animals surviving on the edge of existence face many challenges of extreme conditions within this high desert environment. Stories of ancient hunters, resting along the cliff tops while knapping chert in preparation for the next hunt, and cowboys of the late 1800's, chasing wild mustangs onto Dead Horse Point, using the narrow neck to block off the natural corral . What story will you discover on your visit to Dead Horse Point State Park?

A great place to visit when you have only a short time to see the awesome canyons and breathtaking beauty of this part of Utah. A mini-Grand Canyon. You'll need only an hour or so to visit here as it is not as huge as one of the nearby national parks. Great food and drink stand at the visitors center!

Totally Awesome. We rented Mtn bikes from Moab Tuorism Center (who are great). They recommended this spot as it has the best scenery. We had a great time riding the trails, taking pictures.. just a great day

We stopped after a quick trip to Canyonlands. It's $10 to enter, but well worth it. The views are amazing, even more so than Canyonlands.

This place is spectacular from a viewing standpoint. Colorado river 2000 feet below and a mix of red rock and greenery. Probably one of the best places to take photos, especially at sunset. Early evening it is a scouts honor payment system. You drop $10 in a mailbox after filling out an envelope with your name and car information.

Decided to hit this park on the way to the Canyonlands and so glad we did. The views were spectacular and the $10 entry fee was nominal. Enjoyed the east and west rim trails. Missed some cairns (stone markers) though and got a little off-track. Wouldn't have been so bad but had taken the dogs with me on my little... More

There is not much here but the view, but it is worth the drive if you are in Moab. There is an entrance fee of $10 and the facility has good restrooms.

The sun rising in this state park is spectacular!! There are so many levels to capture from the sun from pre-dawn to dawn. It was fun to photograph.

The views were amazing, like nothing I've ever seen before. The drive up was beautiful too. I would highly recommend it.

The views are spectacular! Highly recommend taking the time to visit. We went hiking to all the view points. The visitor center is very nice with a deck on the side where we ate our lunch. We purchased sandwichs, chips and a drink. It has a nice view.

Wow! What a beautiful park and experience. Although the roads and trails area a bit rough once one gets off the park thoroughfare, the views and the experience are well worth a visit. Bring your camera to capture what your minds ey cannot take in.
