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 .

The view at sunrise is hard to beat, especially if you are a photographer like I am. Easy to get to when in the Moab and Canyonlands National Park area. Entrance fee is $10.

Dead Horse Point State Park gives visitors a wonderful view of the canyons below, cut deep into the stunningly colorful earth by the Colorado River. The 2200-feet-high vistas give views that range for miles, and will not soon be forgotten. It costs $10 a carload to get in, but it's worth it.

We usually fit a visit to Dead Horse Point State Park when we visit Moab. We usually visit the area for mountain biking with a group of three couples. One of our favorite things to do is to take a picnic supper to one of the viewpoints around sunset. The views are incredible! After sunset it is an awesome place... More

Lots of stories told about the place, the view you get there is unbelievable, human eye-sight is not capable to take it all in!

We rode the trails at Dead Horse Point rather than Slickrock. Slickrock is more for expert riders, if you are a recreational rider who wants to see great sights, have some moderate challenge but enjoy the day - go here - its beautiful and fun

We were a little parked out by the time we got here and were sad to pay another entrance fee just to go see the bend in the Colorado at Dead Horse point but it is a beautiful spot and it was neat to see the spot they shot in the Lone Ranger. We went because we didn't think we... More

We got up at 4am to drive from Moab to Dead Horse in the dead of night :), to get sunrise pictures. It was absolutely beautiful and worth the wake up call! It is definitely a must see, espcially at sunrise or sunset.

If you don't have an ATV and cannot access the lower road, this is the best way to see the much-photographed gooseneck known as Dead Horse Point. Admission isn't expensive and the road isn't long. There are some trails, but if you have to choose between Canyonlands just "next door," and Dead Horse... Canyonlands has more going on.
