Description

The Dead Horse Point State Park is an amazing and expansive bit of scenery that looks over the beautiful Colorado River. If mountain biking is what you and your family are into, then you are in luck when you visit the park. In fact, the Dead Horse Point State Park hosts the Intrepid Trail System, which offers 16 miles of dedicated, non-motorized singletrack trails for you to enjoy. 

These trails wind through some stunning backcountry, with Slickrock and mixed terrain providing bits of excitement as you speed down these beautiful paths. The difficulty here ranges anywhere from moderate to pretty challenging, so make sure to get your map from the Dead Horse Point State Park's central office before setting out for a journey. The main trailhead can be found immediately next to the visitor center parking lot. Unfortunately, there are no canines allowed on the Intrepid Trail System. 

Hiking is also hugely encouraged here, with roughly 7 miles of trails winding around the rimrock and desert landscapes contained within Dead Horse Point State Park. These trails tend to pretty easy to navigate. However, the terrain can be a little varied so make sure to wear some sturdy hiking shoes or boots. These trails are built primarily to enjoy the views offered here, so make sure to take breaks and soak in the sights. Canines are allowed on all of these trails, provided they're on a leash at all time. 

Doggie stations exist at each hiking trailhead, so make sure to clean up after your doggie companion if you take them out with you. A great third offering here is geocaching, which is offered by the park's department. They regularly stash several geocaches around Dead Horse Point State Park that contain things like park souvenirs and gift cards. You can rent a GPS from the central office if you'd like to enjoy this particular past time. 

Dead Horse Point State Park officials ask that you refrain from leaving any additional items at these sites. Long-term yurt rental is available here if an overnight stay is what you're looking for. These sites are usually booked about a year in advance, so it's wise to plan your trip as soon as you can. Canines are strictly forbidden from entering the yurts or occupying any of the grounds surrounding them.
