  • One of the best views in a trip in the parks of the Southwest, and definitely one of the best 3 between the ones you will remember when you return home. Given the difficulty in reaching a place so isolated and off the normal tourist trail, you can marvel at this wonder almost in solitude, because you will find very few people on the spot. In August, where are all the crowds of tourists, this was one of the few places where you could enjoy in peace and quiet the scenery on the horizon. Once at the top of the peak, at the end of the Moki Dugway, turn immediately left down the Muley Point Road. From here begins another dirt road and rough at times, no signs and/or signs, which in 6 Km will take you to the first overlook, Muley Point East. But don't stop here, because the overlook is the next one, which is just the tip of the Rocky Mountain, the Muley Point itself. The turnoff to the Muley Point East continue to the right and follow the road for another 2 Km. After parking the car, walk along the rocks until you reach close to the edge. The view you will get will be priceless, and with some luck you will also see Monument Valley. On site there is no structure, no toilets or assistance, but only the most unspoiled nature, so be cautious and go on site with all possible precautions, featured a good supply of water, if you travel in the summer. Since the beginning of the Moki Dugway until Muley Point, considered approximately 40-45 minutes of travel, including some stop for photos, as the dirt road and uphill there allows high speeds. Shortly after the start of the Moki Dugway the asphalt stops, leaving room for an off-beat enough land but also with a few potholes, but perfectly suitable for any normal car. In case of bad weather instead, or wet road by rains, it might be dangerous to try and reach the Muley Point with inadequate means. To properly evaluate the situation to situation.

  • This is my second time here. 10 years ago I drove up the switchbacks of Mokey Dugway with my hand shielding my peripheral vision. This time we came from the north. It's an exciting trip. Five miles dr...  more »

  • This was a long drive on bumpy gravel roads. I saw several cars, but wouldn't have done it without a truck or large SUV. I've seen lots of beautiful views around here, so I'm not sure it was worth the wear and tear...but the scenery is definitely beautiful.
  • Beautiful overlook!! It’s well worth the couple mile dirt road out to Muley Point. It’s gorgeous!! You can see all over Monument Valley. Bring a sweatshirt the breeze was cool!!
