Gaze at the results of 300 million years of time, where the San Juan River winds its way through the desert 1,000 feet below. Goosenecks State Park offers spectacular views of this amazing and rare geologic formation, known as an entrenched meander. Over a distance of one and a half miles, the San Juan flows for more than six miles through the twists of the entrenched meander. Goosenecks State Park offers picnic areas, primitive camping, vault toilets, and an observation shelter. You'll love the views for photography and the expansive night sky for stargazing. Please note: No drinking water is available. No trails; no river access.

Would love to do it if I was younger! Once hiked by Garmisch-Partenkirche in Southern Germany by the Zugspitze in Germany! I visited Goosenecks in July 2018 simply beautiful! I am a retired German/Russian high school teacher and taught at North Bergen HS in New Jersey! Look me up!

Great views. Easy hike.

This a great hike, but I would not call it family friendly or easy. There are quite a few areas with drop off exposure and when you have 1200+ feet of elevation gain/loss, it’s not going to be easy. We made it down and back up, but not without considerable effort helping the kids. I would also not do this mid day as it has constant sun exposure.

Incredible experience to walk right up to the edge of the canyon. If you head towards Natural Bridge National Park you can drive up to Muley Point Overlook which makes the view even better.

A short paved road (Hwy 316) takes you to Goosenecks State Park. Amazing view!

I've done this Jeep ride a few time with my sons Ron and Bob. Like a miniture Grand Canyon, worth the ride.
