Stroll along the Rim Walk, towering 2,000 feet directly above the Colorado River. The mesa that is Dead Horse Point provides breathtaking views of the canyon country of southeastern Utah and the pinnacles and buttes of Canyonlands National Park. The Legend of Dead Horse Point: Cowboys corralled wild mustangs on the Point, then chose the horses they wanted. One time, for some unknown reason, horses were left corralled on the waterless point where they died of thirst.

Well maintained trail with awesome views.

This is a really scenic trail and I would suggest you take the "stair master" route. Pretty steep but worth it!

Pretty easy hike with great views. We went in the winter and found it pretty easy to navigate for the most part. Just looked for the cairns when we started to get lost at any point.

Easy walk with a beautiful panoramic view!

Did this on Thanksgiving day. Not a lot of people around, weather was great and we had a great time. Bring plenty of water & sunscreen, even in the winter time.

Most of the rim is railed. My heart stopped when my 2 year old ran head of me and I realized that particular section did not have a rail with a 5000 + foot drop off. The weather was perfect in November. I'd love to visit again

great easy 4 to 5 mile loop. amazing overlooks!

Absolutely incredible views with nice flat hiking. It can, will, and does get hot. But it's worth the heat and magnificently beautiful.

The first mile is extreme. The first 1/2 mile is very extreme! The rest of the trail has some good technical challenges. There are several good viewing spots. Great trail - not for the faint of heart!

Very challenging! Great full day combination with Golden Spike.
