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?

Went here on a whim and was so pleasantly surprised by the awesome beauty of this place. It's like a combination of the best aspects of the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion. Very accessible -- easy to do in a half day.

Dead Horse offers far better views of the Canyonlands than Canyonlands National Park (at least without hiking forever).

This State Park was a great place to stop and visit, so many things to see and do within the park. It's a must see in Moab, UT.

In my opinion this location is a must see. It's about 40 minutes from Moab but it's a nice drive. I would go in the evening and watch the sunset. It's an incredible site. Bring the bug spray! My kids had the best time climbing...More

Seriously, it did. This bend in the Colorado River is worth a stop. You can hike or bike here, but this is also a place you can do a car tour of in about an hour if you choose. There are several great scenic overlooks...More

The main attraction of this park is at the very end of the road - Dead Horse Point. It doesn't take long to get there and the view is quite famous, of the Colorado river curling around. The visitor centre is also worthwhile visiting and...More

My husband and I made a brief stop at Dead Horse Point State Park after we visited Canyonlands. While it was admittedly a bit anti-climactic after looking at other canyons all day long, it was still a stunning beautiful place to see. Definitely take some...More

As long as you want. An hour if you want to walk around.
I'm thinking about a visit in mid-May to ride Dual Sport motorcycles. Would reservations be recommended that time of year?
