Trail Information

Highlights

Muley Point is a dramatic vista that offers unparalleled views of the San Juan River Valley and its iconic Gooseneck formations. Sitting 2000 feet above the San Juan and 1000 feet above John's Canyon Trail, there is much to see in almost any direction. Even the monoliths of Monument Valley Tribal Park are seen in the distance to the south. Watch out for the edge! There are no railings to keep kids and pets back.

A lot of washboard along the road and some ruts, but nothing of concern. Superb camping can be found along a spur road (37.27785, -109.94293) that shoots off to the east. More private than at Muley Point and excellent views.

After doing Valley of the Gods trail, we headed up Moki Dugway and went out to Muley Point. The road is dry with just a bit of washboarding. It is easily doable by almost any vehicle, low clearance vehicles may have a a bit of trouble. The views at the end of the road are well worth taking the road. There are camping spots if you look for them.

Visited Muley Point during a 4 day overland trip to the area. It's always such a treat to camp out in such a spectacular location!

What an awesome spot to camp and enjoy spectacular views. I don't think there's an exclamation that doesn't apply. Fantastic, breathtaking, awesome, well, you get the idea. There was an amazing lightning storm this night, so loud I had to crawl in my rig for survival. It was surreal seeing the spires of Monument Valley backlit by lightning. All the famous spots were occupied but there are plenty of other dispersed spots. I'd have to say the best camping is at the Moki Overlook. This is an easy trail but I can see how it would be impassable when wet. There were a couple of deep sand spots encountered about 3/4 of the way out there.
