Overview

From the prominence of Dead Horse Point, 2,000 feet above a gooseneck in the Colorado River, an ever changing landscape unfurls. 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 . What story will you discover on your visit to Dead Horse Point State Park?

After Arches, I drove the additional 30-40 minutes to Dead Horse Point! The view has been in many commercials... It is like a painting! It is worth the $10 entrance fee!

Easy to get to and plenty of hiking trails. Because it is a State Park, dogs are allowed making it nice for dog lovers!

An awesome, only slightly off-the-road place to visit in Utah. May look familiar, as it is in many movies. Take the time to walk out to place where they drove the wild horses, a narrow peninsula overlooking the canyon, that has a twenty foot wide...More

The drive out here is as spectacular as it looks on the map - especially on a motorbike. The views are beautiful down to the Colorado from the platform. There is a a covered/shady area with seating when it is hot.

Didn't initially plan to do this state park, but so glad we did, on our way to Canyonlands NP. Spectacular view of the Colorado River horseshoe bend, and surrounding scenery. Don't miss it!

Of all the Moab Red Rock areas this is my favorite. Peaceful, less crowed, leisurely hiking, grand beauty.

What a fantastic trip! Loved the history, the visitor’s center. The state park employee was sooooo helpful. I wish I could remember her name. Great hikes and phenomenal places to pull in to eat your packed lunches. A must see for the whole family!

We arrived late afternoon. Not too many people so easy to look out over the cliffs. Beautiful! Information Center was closed and that was disappointing but we had picnic there. Legend of the name was heart breaking, but not the views.
