Muley Point

Muley Point is a remote, scenic overlook near Mexican Hat offering stunning panoramic vistas of sweeping desert landscape. Extremely remote, Muley Point is located about 25 miles south of Natural Bridges Monument, accessible via a five-mile dirt and gravel road from SR-261. The road cuts through remote BLM lands until the turn-off just before Moki Dugway. There is a viewpoint about four miles in, but Muley Point is the real showstopper. On a clear day Monument Valley, the Four Corners, Valley of the Gods, and the Goosenecks are visible. Muley Point is a landscape of enormous boulders with cracks up to ten and even twenty feet deep. This is a place where you can sit still and hear the wind blow. The secluded overlook is considered one of the best free camping spots in the region, where overnighters can set up camp on the edge of sheer cliffs. The end of the gravel road enters the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
