Deadhorse Point

The Location

Deadhorse Point in Moab, Utah has a jaw-dropping view of Canyonlands National Park. It is located 2,000 feet above a gooseneck in the Colorado River. The park is open year round from 6 am - 10 pm. These breathtaking views are just a few steps from the parking lot. There are concrete sidewalks throughout this entire area for accessibility. Bathrooms are also available nearby.

There are also many other less well-known locations around Deadhorse Point that still get you some stunning views! There are locations called the Neck in the Road and the Rim trail. This trail is a 5 mile round trip that takes you along the whole rim of the canyon which give you some more incredible spots to shoot!

Entrance Fee Required ($20 per vehicle)

The entrance fee is good for 3 days.

Tips From Other Creatives In The Tribe

You only need a photography permit if you are doing commercial (corporate-level) shoots which will be $60. Otherwise, no photo permit is required. Couples getting married at Deadhorse Point will need a permit.

You can only have fake florals at this location, no live bouquets and always remember to pick up after yourself!
