Dead Horse Point State Park is located high on the rim of the Colorado River Canyon, north west of Moab, UT. It offers some of the most spectacular views in the Moab area. There is an excellent hiking/mountain biking loop trail that follows the canyon rim, for more great views. If you are looking to recreate in some of the most scenic country the Moab area has to offer, Dead Horse Point State Park is an excellent choice. Whether mountain biking the Intrepid Trail system (No Dogs Allowed), hiking along the rim trails (Dogs allowed) or just driving to the main overlook, the views are sure to please you.

Incredible views. Didn't expect such a difference between the West Rim Trail and East Rim Trail.

Beautiful, stunning views along this entire trail. Very lightly trafficked except for the two main viewing areas. Made me appreciate this region more than ever! Wonderful photo ops at so many points. My dog did really well on-leash since it's still cool outside, but she still needed plenty of water breaks (no water available- so bring a lot). I wouldn't recommend bringing a dog on this hike once it's above 75 degrees if you're going to do the entire length. Totally worth the drive and state park fee!

Pretty easy hike, you can drive up to most of the outlooks if you choose to do so and cut the hiking waayy down. Phenomenal views of red canyons and the Colorado River.

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.
