 Stay safe
The biggest danger in Dead Horse Point State Park, as well as in other parks in the area, is the weather. High tempatures can easily exceed 100F before noon. Visitors should pack at least 1 gallon of water for every person in their party because it is very easy to get dehydrated. Also one could easily get lost if trying to get into the canyons, if you are hiking pack more food and water than you think you will need, also tell someone where you are going and have a buddy. Also, some of the cliffs in the state park exceed 2,000 feet, so DO NOT go near the edge if there is no barrier to keep you from falling off the top of the cliff, and if there is a barrier, you still need to use extreme caution while looking into the canyons. Finally, if a thunderstorm is near or over you, try to get to a shelter, if none is around, get close to the ground, and if you are in a canyon, get to higher land immedately because flash floods start easily.
