If you look at this landform from above, you see an ancient table-like field, soaring 2000 feet above the snaking Colorado River. It is one of the most dramatic overlooks on the planet. The name, however, comes from a time in the 19th century when cowboys corralled horses here, and they would frequently die from the heat and exposure. Getting to here from Moab which is 30 miles away; means taking a looping drive. This drive first goes northwest along 191 and then turns left onto 313; which leads directly to the point. At the point, you get off, go admire the overlook, take photographs, maybe hike one of the many small trails. At the onsite Kenyata Campground there are amenities - picnic tables, electricity, restrooms, and BBQ grills. It's best to reserve a spot, though there is also a first come first serve system. The most luxurious accommodations are the three yurts, each of which can accommodate 6 people and has air-conditioning, though no showers and pets are not allowed!
