Superb for casual walking and taking pics

Well worth a few hours - and views of Monument Valley in the distance. Just a few minutes from the summit of the Moki Dugway.

The overlook can be reached from the Moki Dugway (first left at the top of Dugway), or if coming from the north via 261. The overlook is at the end of a gravel road. On a clear day, the major formations of Monument Valley Tribal Park are visible.

Spectacular! What else need be said? And then the drive down the Moki Dugway to the bottom was just icing on the cake.

Visited 06 Nov. Dirt road was in pretty good condition, recently graded and with no major bumps or holes. A couple of soft sand spots but caused no issues with my 2WD small sedan. The view was spectacular and with only 2 other cars there, very private. Well worth a look, but check road conditions first and slow down at... More

If you are in the area, you must do it. Yes it is a dirt road but it is not terribly bad/long but the views are just fantastic.

We are really glad that we stopped at Muley Point Overlook. The river meanders around these large mountains. We could see float boats down in the river. It made some gorgeous pictures.

You will need to drive on gravel road for about 11 miles to this point. On a clear day the 360 degree views here can expand for hundreds of miles from the cliff. We saw people camping there and having their morning meditation on the rocks - definitely a great spot for getting in touch with Mother Nature. Beware it... More

Follow SR 261 north from Mexican Hat (take in Goosenecks on route - not free) and then hold on as you drive the dirt track up the side of the mesa. Clearly it's perfectly safe, but it has the feeling of being dangerous because of the exposure. And when you get one bend from the top, the view from the... More

This is a spectacular and amazing end of the world overview - considered one of the best high views in the country. Incredible!

We took the drive up to Muley Point after our tour of Valley of the Gods. The 10% grade and gravel road made for a fun drive. And the view at the top was worth it.
