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?

Gorgeous views! Good trails and much is wheelchair accessible. Only complaint is there are nowhere near enough pull-outs to enjoy the scenery. Visitor center is ok but the view is great.

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.
