One of Utah's most amazing state parks, Dead Horse Point is a geologic marvel and a land of legend. This park is so emblematic of the great American West that it is frequently used as a location for filming episodes of HBO's Westworld.
From the prominence of Dead Horse Point, 2,000 feet above a gooseneck in the Colorado River, an ever-changing landscape unfurls. Immense vertical cliffs meet with canyons carved by ice, water, and wind creating a visual masterpiece. Plants and animals surviving on the edge of existence face many challenges of extreme conditions within this high desert environment. Stories of ancient hunters, resting along the cliff tops while knapping chert in preparation for the next hunt, and cowboys of the late 1800s, chasing wild mustangs onto Dead Horse Point, using the narrow neck to block off the natural corral.
A key filming location for HBOs "Westworld", Dead Horse Point exudes the spirit of the West. If you are going to Canyonlands National Park, Dead Horse Point is on the way, just off of Highway 313. Don't miss it!
