Welcome to Dead Horse Point State Park


Around the turn of the 20th century, cowboys used the mesa top as a sort of natural corral by driving wild horses onto it and blocking the ridge. The story goes that one season ranch hands forgot to release the horses they didn't cull, and the stranded equines supposedly died with a great view of the Colorado River.
