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?

Dead Horse State Park is in the same general area as Canyonlands National Park. I stopped at Dead Horse after I left Canyonlands. I had limited time so only drove to the park road to Dead Horse Point. The views are as good as those...More

I spent a morning at Dead Horse with Andy Cook's Rocky Mountain Reflections photo workshop. We got there before sunrise and waited for the show. The sun came up and it was spectacular. Like a mini grand canyon but without the crowds and hassle. It...More

Dead Horse Point is a gem tucked away near Canyonlands and Arches, but it's worth the stop. The canyon views are incredible and there's a good abundance of local desert wildlife. It's easily on par with much of what you'll find just down the road...More

Rented a car and a mountain bike at one of the local shops in Moab (Chili Peppers) and for a few extra bucks was outfitted with a handy bike rack. Its less than 30 mile drive from Moab to DHPSP, a few miles before the...More

We loved this little park and stayed for about a half day which gave us enough time to hike the east rim trail. There are beautiful views along the trail. Most trails seemed fairly easy with little changes in elevation. Easy hikes for young children.

The views were fantastic. The story about how this park got its name is just as interesting. Don’t forget your camera.

Dead Horse Point has fabulous views, great kid friendly bike trails, and allows furry friends which makes it a great alternative to Canyonlands National Park. The topography is fascinating and the drive coming into the park is stunning.

The views of the canyon are beautiful, the visitor center is nice with a friendly/helpful staff, and there is a small coffee cart just outside of the visitor center. For mountain bikers there is a nice stacked loop trail system that starts from the main...More

This viewpoint is great. Very good for photo shooting. Breathtaking views. You need to prepare a nice camera with wide angle lens.

One afternoon in Dead Horse. Be warned, there’s an oil plant at the entrance and within the park, there is a fertiliser distillation plant. Deeply disappointing environment-wise. Beautiful if you turn your head and camera... More

Its going to be between Moab and Bryce. They are different. Moab has Arches, Colorado river . Bryce has the Hoo Doos and beautiful scenery. Both are great for hiking or just short walk views.

Usually campsites are relatively easy to come by. A little harder to book are the yurts. The later in the fall you come the more available. This is an amazing park and area, have fun
