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?

I have not been up here for 15 years as the trails are a bit easy. The views are spectacular. My dog is older and the trails are pretty flat which made it easy for my dog to walk the trails.

We went here after coming out of Canyonlands - it is a great recreational area. The folklore was interesting and it was a nice short drive. The porch at the visitor center is a nice sunset spot.

State park that is on the way to Canyonlands. Very nice visitors center that was open with helpful staff. Easy to see if you have limited time in the area.

If not for the recommendation of a friend we would have missed this park all together. It's just a quick turn off the road leading into the Canyonlands National Park so it's very easy to get to. The view is incredible and one of a kind. I can't believe how easy this place is to miss. If you're going to... More

This is a "must see" place for everyone. It can be driven to, with any style of hike desired as well. The views are astounding and the grandeur and scale of the West are arrayed before you. The visitor center is small but excellent.

Drivig to Canyonlands National Park North of Moab there is the entrance to Dead Horse Park on the left hand side. It is a fascinating round view of nearly 360 degree, might be a bit cowded in summertime.

Personally I found the $10 fee expensive as it's not a large park like the others around. Basically you are paying the fee for the viewing point. However, the money goes towards the facilities so we can't complain. It's a shame they don't have a cafe on site. There was an outside hut for coffee but it was closed.
