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.

I would agree this is an easy trail with few difficult inclines. The east rim has a clearly marked path in most places and you will quickly reach dead horse point. The west rim is less well marked, although there are copious cairns which were our rock buddies helping us navigate. The canyon views are stunning on both sides of the rim.

Though it wasn't geographically challenging, this was an amazing hike with stellar views of the canyons the whole way around. Make sure you pop off the trail to see the overlooks-- some of the most fun we had on detours! We also took the extra few miles to the Bighorn Overlook which was way more than worth it. Absolutely stunning views! A must see in Deadhorse.

Not what I expected. I wouldn't rate this as moderate. More like easy. This may be impressive to someone who has never been to Moab or perhaps someone who is older. There are plenty of good hikes you can get to with these views without having to pay a $15 entry. I wouldn't do it again. You can easily see the same views from your car and honestly the hike was boring and went parallel to vehicle traffic.
