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 .

This park competes very well with the NP that are nearby. Wonderful lookout points and easy to get to with good parking. Make this a must visit if you are in the area.

Good roads and a lot to see. When you get out to the point there can be high winds with blowing sand so be careful. Take plenty of water and snacks.

Outstanding views. We did not go on any long hikes but the short ones are worth the effort. Dog friendly where as the NP are not. Plan at least a half day.

We tried mountain biking for the first time here & the trails were perfect for a newbie,yet still challenging. The views here are spectacular! The staff, both at the entrance and the Visitor Center, were helpful and cheerful. A great park!

If you are in the area, you MUST see this point. If you're not in the area, you have to travel to the area and see it. Breath taking views.
