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?

Went mountain biking for the first time here, was one of the best experiences ever. This state park singlehandedly got me into the sport. At certain points, I even thought the views were more scenic than the Grand Canyon.

Dead Horse Point State Park is a little out of the way but well worth your effort. Beautiful slot canyon that meanders for more than a mile from point of entry. Take plenty of water and some food for the hike along with a camera and tripod if you want to photograph some spectacular scenery.

This State Park could easily be overshadowed by its close neighbour, Canyonlands. I almost drove by but decided to stop in for a look on my way back from the NP. And it was really worth it. The walks at the end of the entrance road are quite lovely and the views different to those in the NP. I got... More

Absolutely one of the the most breathtaking views. I proposed to my fiance as we watched the sunset on the point. We woke early after staying in the campground to take sunrise pictures. To avoid crowds, go early or late. You will get a better view with less people especially since the shadows change rapidly on either end of the... More

This was definitely I sight to see! The viewpoints are amazing. We went on a cool day so the weather was amazing. Watch out for bikers! The photos attached are from up above. If you dare you can take a closer look if you take the dirt rd (Shaffer rd) after the ranger point in canyonlands. I have a 4x2... More

We did not even intend to visit the park until someone who works at the hotel we stayed at recommended we watch the sunset from here. Let me tell you it had the greatest sunset I think I have seen and I have seen many in many places it is a amazing overview of the canyons and the Colorado river... More

Pack sunscreen and water. This hiking trail is filled with gems for the eyes, fresh air for your lungs, and serenity for your soul. May God bless those who so meticulously marked the trails. At times we thought the trail was doubling back but it was accurate. One of our all time favorite hikes to reconnect with each other and... More

The drive on 313 off 191 to get to the park itself is an event. Just beautiful. At the park, we started off the visitor center, walked the eastern rim to deadhorse view where we simply carried on and completed the western rim. This ended back at the visitor center. Great views, great hike on fairly level ground. Total distance... More
