Dead Horse Point State Park
Is a state park of Utah in the United States, featuring a dramatic overlook of the Colorado River and Canyonlands National Park. The park covers 5,362 acres of high desert at an altitude of 5,900 feet.
The park has several overlooks and a 9-mile loop hiking trail that allows access to the East Rim Trail and the West Rim Trail. Safety concerns include the relative isolation of the park (gas, food and medical care are over 30 miles away in Moab), lightning danger and unfenced cliffs. Nearby Moab is a noted center for mountain biking. Bikes in the park are allowed on paved roads, and there is a mountain bike trail called Intrepid Trail with 17 miles of single track trails near the State Park Visitor's Center with loops of varying levels of difficulty.
The park is so named because of its use as a natural corral by cowboys in the 19th century, where horses often died of exposure. Dead Horse Point has frequently been noted on lists of unusual place names. The area was also used in the final 'Grand Canyon' scene of the 1991 film Thelma & Louise.
Arches National Park
Located in eastern Utah, United States, the park is adjacent to the Colorado River, 4 miles north of Moab, Utah. The park contains the highest density of natural arches in the world, more than 2,000 natural sandstone arches are located in the park, including the well-known Delicate Arch, as well as a variety of unique geological resources and formations. The park consists of 76,679 acres of high desert located on the Colorado Plateau. The highest elevation in the park is 5,653 feet at Elephant Butte, and the lowest elevation is 4,085 feet at the visitor center. The park receives an average of less than 10 inches of rain annually.
Canyonlands National Park
Is located in southeastern Utah near the town of Moab. The park preserves a colorful landscape eroded into countless canyons, mesas, and buttes by the Colorado River, the Green River, and their respective tributaries. The park is divided into four districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze, and the combined rivers—the Green and Colorado—which carved two large canyons into the Colorado Plateau. While these areas share a primitive desert atmosphere, each retains its own character. Author Edward Abbey, a frequent visitor, described the Canyonlands as "the most weird, wonderful, magical place on earth—there is nothing else like it anywhere."
