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?

Not as many people go here so you can avoid the crowds. More importantly it is absolutely stunning in the beautiful views. Dead Horse Point is a must see!

With many trips to Moab and Arches National Park, I had never been to the Dead Horse Point State Park. Since we arrived early, we decided to take the road into the state park. We really enjoyed the landscape and scenery. It is definitely worth the time to see this beautiful place.

The beautiful look outs and rim trails were breathtaking. It was early in the morning, it was quiet and we only saw a few other people. After the pit toilets of the national parks of the area, it was nice to see a park with nice facilities. This would be a nice place to camp. The remoteness allowed for the utter quiet to settle around you. This was a great peaceful destination after Arches.

What went to Dead Horse State Park for a sunset bike ride. The bike ride was great; the trails are accurately rated easy to difficult. We had a hard time find where to get in the bike trails though. The scenery is amazing and beautiful.
