Dead Horse Point
Dead Horse Point is a popular outdoor destination near Moab, featuring stunning views of the surrounding canyons and desert landscapes. We recommend stopping at the main overlook to take in the views, but if you have extra time there's plenty of short and long scenic hikes in the park.
The park gets its name from a local legend that states cowboys used the area to corral wild mustangs and then blocked off the only entrance, leaving them to die of thirst. Despite the morbid history, it is a great stop with incredible views.
