“Nice quick detour with excellent views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2009

The road to Muley Point in July was not in the greatest shape, but still manageable in a rental car. Just take your time, it's about 5 miles. The reward is worth it. When traveling from Natural Bridges to Monument Valley, the Muley Point Road is just before the Moki Dugway on the right. I'll let the pictures do the talking for this scenic overview.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2009

Although it's not the easiest road to find, the road to Muley Point is just off to the lefrt after you reach the top of the Mokey Dugway - although if you are heading in the other direction there is a sign you'll see.

The road is in far better condition this year (June 2009) than I'd seen it on three previous visits in the past 15 years - although I think it does suffer if there is heavy rain.

The view at the end is stunning - down into the Canyon as well as across to the distant Monument Valley. If it's a very windy day you should take extra care - and obviously children and pets need to be under close control with such an exposed drop.

The whole trip north from Monument Valley is full of top attractions - the view from Milepost 13, Mexican Hat, Goosenecks SP, Valley of the Gods, Mokey Dugway and finally Muley Point to top it all off (unless you are continuing to the Natural Bridges area, which is a bit of a let down in contrast).

“Amazing views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2008

A great remote viewpoint that few people know. After driving up the Moki Dugway on an exciting steep dirt road, you make a left (but be careful, the Muley Point overlook is not signposted) and after a few minutes you will find a spectacular 360° panorama from the top of the mesa including Monument Valley, Goosenecks of San Juan River, the dirt road crossing the Valley of Gods on the left, and the Glen Canyon NRA on the very right side. Quiet and peaceful as few places can be, it gives an impressing idea of how this landscape between Utah and Arizona can offer beauty, magnificiency and variety at the same time.

“Best view i have ever seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2008

We have travelled a lot, and seen some stunning things in the US, but this one knocked us for six and it is not all that well known. We took the Gooseneck road near Blanding and followed it until a dirt track lead us up to Muley Point. This dirt track is only about 5 miles, and very driveable. The views of Gooseneck Canyon below you, and Monument Valley in the distance as the back drop, are breathtaking. You feel so tiny and humbled that you feel you have to whisper in the presence of something so awesome. Without a doubt, this is one view that will live with you forever.

“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2003

To reach Muley Point Overlook you have to make a five mile ride out a dirt road, but you are richly rewarded at at the end of the road. The view is incredible and you can get out on the rocks and walk, and walk, and walk. A definite must see.
