Dead Horse Point State Park Info

Dead Horse Point State Park >>>


Dead Horse Point is likely one of Utah’s most scenic state parks. Dead Horse Point is located West of Moab and close to the border of Canyonlands National Park. You can view a MAPQUEST image of the park’s location here. You’ll notice that the entrance to the park is North of Moab via State Road (313).

Dead Horse Point is a peninsula of rock connected to a large mesa by a narrow strip. On all sides are sheer sandstone cliffs and the view of the Colorado River thousands of feet below is stunningly beautiful.
