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?

Awesome panoramic views of the Colorado River canyon near Moab, Utah! It's worth the short drive from Moab. We didn't do much except take in the view even though there are some nice hikes along the rim trail.

We've been to Arches and Canyon lands several times in the past, but had somehow driven right by the turnoff for Dead Horse State Park without a thought. Don't make the same mistake! This park is an easy few mile drive off of the main access road to Canyon Lands, and is well worth the visit. There is a $10... More

It's hard to believe I stumbled across this place only two years ago, when I was a beginner mountain biker searching for approachable trails for my first mountain biking trip to Moab. The mountain bike trails here are very well maintained and have a great variety of trail types - smooth slickrock, alligator back, fast swoopy singletrack, sand traps, you... More

Love Dead Horse Point. One of my favorite things about it is you can spend a day hiking around, or if you only have a short amount of time you can quickly take in all the incredible views and get some great pictures in under an hour.

We traveled here in December 2016 and did the four mile loop hike that goes on either side of the highway. The park is very well cared for and the ranger was very nice, helpful. The exhibit is great at the visitors center. We hope to go back.
