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 .

This has to be one of the most impressive sights in Utah, a state that has so many impressive sights. We just fitted this in on our visit to Canyonlands and were awe-struck by the sights just from the Visitor Centre, car park and area around. A must do.

This was the site of our mountain bike tour for the day. What views! I am a beginning mountain biker, while my husband is advanced. I did have to walk occasionally due to the elevation, but it was worth it! I would love to return again!

Dead Horse Point State Park was fantastic! There were hiking trails that were just for hiking and bike trails that were just for bikes. We enjoyed both. The visitor's center was very nice and the staff was friendly. The views were spectacular. We camped in the campground there the night we were there and the campground was great! There were... More

after visiting canyon lands we decided to spend the evening in Dead Horse Point State Park. Although we didn't plan this we liked it very much. It is very small, so in my eyes (if you don't hike) you will not spend a complete day there but it definitely was worth driving there and spending a few hours in the... More

My wife and I visited this state park after reading about it. There were very few people on the roadways and trails in this park, and we were so very glad that we toured it. The view from Dead Horse Point was as spectacular as any that we saw in Canyonland. Not to be missed!!

This state park is an absolute gem. Gorgeous views and not too crowded. Well maintained for a state park; great visitors center, a Pony Expresso cafe (trailer) next to the visitors center, and a jr rangers program for kids similar to the one offered at the national parks. So glad we made a day trip here. Bring lots of water... More

The overlook does not guarantee to see the Colorado bend in whole. The pictures must be taken from a helicopter. Good view over Shafer Trail and White Rim Road.

We traveled out west by motorcycle and visited as many parks as we could. The Arches is the best known, but this was definitely worth a visit too! Great views, well maintained!
