“red rocks for miles”
The view from Dead Horse Point is one of the most photographed scenic vistas in the world'the panorama of the Colorado River Canyon. Grandview looks down on the Needles and maze sections of Canyonlands National Park, as well as the Green and Colorado River. At the start of the spectacular scenic byway, the route passes through 14 miles of BLM's incredible red rock canyon country. Pull-offs along the way interpret the geology, archeology and scenery seen from the highway. Look for Seven Mile Canyon, the massive Monitor and Merrimac buttes, views of the San Rafael Reef and the Henry Mountains. From the visitor information kiosk at the base of the byway to the summit is approximately five miles and requires 30 minutes.
The camp sites were nice, we were not on top of our neighbors, no water but there is power. Power was needed because of the temp. We would stay again. The history of the park is sad. The views were awesome!
