Description

Follow the paved path from the parking lot along the rim around the visitor center. Several signs explain the geologic history of the canyons in front of you as well as the human history behind the evaporation ponds you can see in the far. This short trail ends at the south entrance of the visitor center.

La Sal Mountains from the Dead Horse Point Visitor Center
Mar 17, 2020 near Moab, UT
Great trail - A bit windy. The weather is much different from the valley below. Wonderful views. The trail is paved in some places, slick rock in others and hard to find in a place or two
