Follow SR 261 north from Mexican Hat (take in Goosenecks on route - not free) and then hold on as you drive the dirt track up the side of the mesa. Clearly it's perfectly safe, but it has the feeling of being dangerous because of the exposure. And when you get one bend from the top, the view from the... More

This is a spectacular and amazing end of the world overview - considered one of the best high views in the country. Incredible!

We took the drive up to Muley Point after our tour of Valley of the Gods. The 10% grade and gravel road made for a fun drive. And the view at the top was worth it.

An amazing spot, to drive in good weather. There is no need for 4x4, unless it has recently rained. We had the spot to ourselves. I guess most people drive by the access road, and miss out on the scenic views.

The overlook is about 4 miles down a dirt road at the top of the Moki Dugway. It is a pretty easy drive with a few spots of soft but easily passable sand and a few with gravel/rock. We had no problem in a minivan. At the end of the road, there is a dramatic overlook with sheer cliffs. The... More

I visited this place many years ago, and was impressed with the view then, So when my husband and I visited the area I planned the trip so we could see it again. Coming from the North it is just fairly flat land, short stubby trees, they are warning you about gravel road ahead. I've driven on gravel before, so... More

View down to the meandering river is spectacular. You can walk down as well but it was very cold in May so we just looked.

The views from MUley Point are exceptional. The road to Muley Point begins right at the top of Moki Dugway (turn left if coming up the hill). The road is not paved (nor is Moki Dugway) but is perfectly safe for a conventional vehicle, just go fairly slow. The high altitude views of the San Juan Goosenecks, Monument Valley in... More

We had heard about Muley Point, and decided it would be on our list of things to do. I'm so glad we did. The drive up is awesome, but not for the faint of heart! It will take a while, so give yourself plenty of time. When you finally reach the top, the view is amazing!

Here you experience what an overlook is all about. Great vistas and solitude (quietness). A view which makes you humble. Great views of Monument Valley.
