Owner description: 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?

Time it for a sunset, you won't be disappointed. I did not know Utah has a Grand Canyon, in some ways it is somewhat more spectacular than the real deal.

After leaving Canyonlands National Eye in the Sky area, stopped in the Dead Horse State Park. A state park entrance fee is required & almost didn't go. However, we paid the fee of $16.00 and drove in the park. Well worth the entrance fee for this beautiful scenic overview...several hiking trails here also.

I have been here twice and on both occasions I was awed by the incredible views of the Colorado River flowing thousands of feet below and the distant towering cliffs. A cement walking path near the visitors center guides you along the edge of the cliff for fantastic views of the the surrounding cliffs.Plenty of parking and a visitor center has many educational displays focused on the geology and history of this area of Utah.
