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.

I didn't experience wash-boarding as bad as some other reviews have mentioned so overall, this road is pretty pleasant. I managed to find a very secluded and scenic campsite which had me feeling lucky because, shockingly, there were a ton of people camping out here on a Tuesday. The views in all directions (assuming you're close to the edge) are spectacular and I would definitely camp here again.

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.
