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?

This is a stunning state park. There is a ten dollar admission fee. The Visitor's Center is very well designed with interactive displays. There are hikes of different difficulties to choose from. The canyon views are spectacular. The history of the land is very interesting. There are salt flats as well as deep canyons, gorges, and stunning rock formations. There... More

Bring your mountain bike or trail running shoes and be prepared to cover some distance. Trails are a combination of dirt roads, jeep roads and single track. The views are amazing. Gradual uphills, smooth, couple short, steep sections but very rideable and runnable.

The National Parks in the Area steal the show, but this State Park is also worth a stop, particularly if your not into hiking to get a striking panorama. The entrance fee is $10 and there is a nice rim hiking trail that is sure to please, or just drive to the end of the road to be treated to... More

It is not quite as beautiful as Arches or Canyonlands, but it is definitely worth a stop. You turn left about 2-3 miles before Canyonlands. You can do both parks in one day if you are a casual observer. It is amazing how different all three parks are. Moab is beauty overload!

My wife and I took our bikes here for our first rides in the area. Most of the way we rode along a rim with just incredible and varied vistas. The trail was nice and easy (my wife is game but not into gnarly). The ride was great and we got our first contact with slick rock. Dead Horse Point... More

Similar to Canyonlands National Park in some of it's scenery, it is still a unique experience. Since it's a state park, we were able to take the dog and actually hike. We hiked all the way around the park--both the east and west rims. I can't wait to go back again.

Didn't have time to go to Canyonlands NP, so visited this beautiful state park instead. You can enjoy parts of Canyonlands from the overlook. Incredible views. Highly recommend!!

As others have mentioned, there is not a whole lot to do other than enjoy the impressive view at the end of the road. The easy trail near the visitor center was also pretty good. The restrooms were super clean - probably the cleanest I have seen in a public park. I think that alone is worth the 10$ entry... More

This park has some outstanding views as does Arches National Park. The story behind the name is both sad and interesting but you don't know if it's legit but it makes for a good story to tell the kids and friends. You get to see the Colorado Rivers and the Green Rivers at different locations in the park and you're... More
