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?

We had a really good visit at Dead Horse with our first impression of the view was breathtaking due the the height. Wow. We also enjoyed the view from Dead Horse Point which showed the goose neck in the Colorado River. We like the story on the naming of Dead Horse in which no horses died.

Wonderful views from two lookouts we visited. Well worth the trip from Moab. I enjoyed it more than Canyonlands. Views of the Colorado River and Canyonlands National Park.

Dead Horse was fantastic views, with dramatic rock formations. Early morning was intense with colors and the sun's rays making a wonderful scene.

If you happen to get a cloud free evening and see that sunset...so worth it. We did and then went back in the morning for the sunrise, which was fantastic as well

Beautifully maintained state park has trails of all levels of difficulty, and some of the most amazing views around. There's even an overlook on a flat approach, complete with benches and a shade structure, that may be appealing to people with walking difficulties.

When in the general area, don't miss visiting this beautiful location. Incredible overlooks and fairly easy hikes won't disappoint you. Stop in the Visitors Center for explanation and overview. This is another of the must-do stops in the area.

We drove by on our way to Canyonlands and the scenic view is well worth it. Entrance fee is $10 as it is a State Park hence not covered by the National Park pass.

We weren't sure what to expect as we drove out to the park to see the sunset. We were greeted with a breath-taking view and a peaceful place to view the sunset. Can't really vouch for what it's like for camping or day activities.

My friend and I drove first and then did the hike. It was an easy hike that provided great scenery. About 45 mins from where we stayed in Moab but worth the drive.
