Goosenecks of the San Juan River

Jeep Momma Getaway


During my many adventures, I have come across some
amazing scenic stops. One of those stops is the Goosenecks State Park in Utah with the most spectacular views. 



This park sits on the edge of a deep canyon, 1000 feet above the San Juan River. The sinuous river meander is known as a gooseneck, officially called entrenched meander. 
The San Juan river makes a series of tight turns below the state park. 



The river has carved out a deep canyon at this location which Geologists say over 300 million years of erosion has uncovered a record amount of rock. There are six miles of the twists of the entrenched meander, the distance of one an a half miles.


There is room for primitive camping at the state park but spots are limited. The views are breathtaking and I highly suggest you add this stop to your bucket list.
