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?

Great state park with well paved roads, lots of overlooks and trails. Great views - some of the best of the Colorado River.

We hit the park at sunset. Spectaular vistas. Also, enjoyed a very fun, albeit tame, mountain bike ride. Definitely worth adding to the itinerary.

Shorter slightly easier hiking. Mostly flat. Beautiful overlooks. Nice visitor center. You can drive to the Dead Horse point if you don’t want to do a lot of hiking and see beautiful views. Little lids can’t run wild or they could get hurt. Small entrance...More

Breathtaking views of endless vistas & canyons. Great hike to the point. We saw a hiker sitting on a rock ledge so high up & extending over the canyon. Would strongly recommend against that! It's mesmerizing to look at this point and think of the...More

Decided to try this park for a day - great decision! Scenery is spectacular and the full rim walk enjoyable and not too strenuous. Take time to go for a decent wander - well worth it.

Breath-taking views. Well worth it. Very beautiful. Highly recommended to visit, even though it is a little out of the way.

Glad we didn’t miss this one! After a trip here you should also take Moab Jett and do a tour down the river and through the park. What an experience!

Nature with millions of years of work is stunning. I don’t believe for a second the story of how the place got its name. We visited on a cold day, but if you are here in hear and you hike, carry and drink much water.

There is one stop at the Visitor’s Centre, and another at the Overlook at the end of the road. There are easy walks that you can do from both points, or you can do a circle hike around the whole rim. It’s so different from... More

Walking the rim (completely or partially) is worth the effort, many great views that give different perspectives on the canyonlands below.

Keep in mind that US school summer holidays start mid June, which might result in more people in the parks. This also counts for the weekends. On your way from Bryce to Arches you might opt to take a southern route pending... More
