The Stunning Hoo-Doos of Stud-Horse Point

Updated: Jun 12

I'm always on the hunt for hidden gems to share with my readers, and one that I can't recommend enough is the breathtaking Stud-Horse Point overlook in Page, Arizona. We've been lucky enough to visit three times and have been amazed each time by the stunning views, which can be reached by taking 89 North out of Page to Ferry Swale Rd. to Blue Pools Rd., then following this to Stud Horse Point Rd. before turning right on Wildcat Rd. and arriving at the overlook, where you'll be treated to a variety of hoo-doos in different sizes, all of which are absolutely amazing, as well as sweeping views all the way to Lake Powell, and even an old corral that we'll be writing about in a later post!

Perched on a high plateau overlooking Lake Powell and Glen Canyon, this scenic viewpoint provides a panoramic vista of the azure blue waters, rugged canyons, and distant mesas. The expansive vista allows visitors to appreciate the vastness and grandeur of the region, with layers of red and orange cliffs stretching out as far as the eye can see. As the sun casts its golden light over the landscape, the colors become even more vibrant, creating a captivating display of nature's artistry. Whether it's the tranquil serenity or the sheer magnitude of the views, Stud Horse Point offers a tranquil escape and a memorable experience for those seeking to connect with the awe-inspiring beauty of the American Southwest.
