Goosenecks of the San Juan River

Jeep Momma Getaway Idea

Goosenecks State Park Utah

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.
