Moab, Utah: Cliff Where Thelma and Louise Exited

The actual cliff where the heroines of Ridley Scott's film "Thelma and Louise" (1991) drove off in their mad yet satisfying dash from the law and into legend.

Potash Rd, Moab, UT
Do not attempt in wet weather. Make sure you have a full tank of gas, and bring water. From Moab drive north four miles on US-191. Turn left (no stoplight or street sign) onto Potash Rd/UT-279. Drive 15 miles. When you pass the potash plant on the right, the road turns to gravel, then to dirt. Keep driving another 10 miles to Thelma and Louise Point, on the left.

Thelma and Louise Point

All descriptions you have listed for access to Thelma and Louise Point are, ironically, dead wrong. Thelma and Louise Point is not accessed in nor via any state park. There is no fee to get there. You may *see* the Point from the State Park, but you will be roughly 1,300ft (396m) above it, and about 1.22mi (1.96km) north of the Point.

Thanks for orienting us correctly to this remote location. If we'd been in charge of Thelma and Louise's maps, we probably would've driven off of the wrong cliff.

We headed out to find this spot and discovered that the fee to get into the park is $20 per car. You must decide if it's worth $20! We decided against it.

This canyon is called the "Grand Canyon stunt double," since they cannot film at the actual Grand Canyon. The Moab/Monument Valley Museum in Moab has all the behind-the-scenes photos of this area. Many films were filmed here and in the surrounding areas.

Cliff Where Thelma and Louise Exited

I was there jeeping with a friend of mine apparently when the movie was being filmed. We drove our jeep up to the area and found a ramp in place that would have been used in the film. We didn't know what it was for until a year later when the movie came out.

There is nothing there to say this is where Thelma and Louise jumped, but I googled it and a picture exactly like mine came up. This is a beautiful park and overlook. Worth the half hour drive and the $10 to get in.

The scenic cliff made movie-famous by "Thelma and Louise" is in Dead Horse Point State Park.
