Dead Horse Point State Park

Dogs are welcome to join their owners at the pet-friendly Dead Horse Point State Park in Moab, UT. As soon as you step into this park, you'll feel like you've set foot on another planet. Sprawling as far as the eye can see over 5,362 acres of high desert at an altitude of 5,900 feet, you have to visit this park to believe it's actually real. Millions of years of erosion have left the park with stunning valleys and rigid mountains of all shapes and sizes jutting out high into the sky above the Colorado River below. You are welcome to bring Fido with you on the trails that weave around the amazing terrain, as long as they are on a leash and you pick up any mess that they leave behind. Visit Website

Or call (435) 259-2614 for more information.

    Good option after visiting Canyonlands

    Dead Horse State Park is great for giving your dog a chance to be out and about. After touring the National Park it was great to come here to stretch our dog’s 4 legs. The Park has great views and plenty of trails to wonder and explore. Our Golden Retriever loved it!

    Rim Hiking was great

    Beautiful scenery to enjoy with your dog. I did the west to east rim hike with some of the smaller point hikes. A summer hike requires plenty of water for you and your dog. There is a bathroom along the rim trail that was a good spot to refill the dog water bottle. Throughout most (but not all) of the hike we could find a shady spot to rest. the hiking was easy. Since there are limited hikes you can take your dog on, I recommend this park.

    Amazing Views

    It was awesome from the start! The lady at the gate told me about their full moon hike at sunset and was very welcoming. The views were breath taking and the hike was a fun 1 mile(ish) with educational stops. I thoroughly enjoyed it 😊

    Great dog friendly hiking spot!

    The ranger at the entrance gate had dog treats in the window and came out to pet our pup, and the visitor center was welcoming to leased dogs. We loved the 5 mile rim hike- there’s not a lot of shade but we brought plenty of water and our dog loved all climbing up the trail!

    Dog Friendly Near Moab

    we have done Moab proper with the pups several times and wanted to see something different.
    we stayed inside Dead Horse Point State park at the campground. it is very dog-friendly. the hiking trails to some of the most beautiful scenery are right off the campground. It is in the middle of nowhere so pack it all up and go!

    Enjoy The State Park

    Dog cleanup stations, trail was dirt easy on paws. Easy walking where dogs allowed everywhere. Amazing scenery. Shaded picnic areas. A must do as the National Parks don’t allow pets!!
