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 state run park is definitely worth a visit when you're in the Moab area. My family was blown away by the spectacular view. I recommend going here in the afternoon to watch the sun set. Note: This is a State run park and requires a fee that is not covered by your Arches National Park Fee. Still it's worth... More

We were at the end of a long day seeing Canyonlands, but were very happy we took the time (and paid the $10) to drive out to the point - wow! Incredible views from a very easy footpath next to the parking lot - highly recommended. We were told to go at sunset - if I'm ever back there, I... More

Wow! Just Wow! If you've ever wondered how the Grand Canyon was carved? Look no further. Desert landscape, red rocks, steps and cliffs. Wow!

We arrived just before a thunder storm hit and this only added to the beauty! There is a cover over part of the overlook and nice rest rooms nearby. Time didn't allow for us to visit the Visitor's Center but I am sure it was very good. Take a lunch and enjoy how the canyon changes colors.

Very interesting story behind this park. Very beautiful and unusual formation to look down on. Try and get there before or after a tour bus has unloaded to get the best photos.

We didn't stay long here - just went for the sunset really, we started at the look out at the visitors centre - even thought we had seen some wonderful scenery and site on out trip this was amazing, the changes on light and shadows as the sun dropped behind us were jaw dropping. We were almost alone there which... More
