AAA Editor Notes

Goosenecks State Park is 9 mi. n.w. off SR 261. The park provides a cliff-top overlook into the scenic “gooseneck” canyons of the San Juan River. The deep loops are entrenched meanders dug by the silt-laden river. The distance across the goosenecks is 1 mile; the river's course covers 6 miles. At one point the river makes a 3-mile curve around a ridge only 100 yards wide. Eventually some of the necks will be breached, creating new natural bridges. Note: No water, electricity or lighting is available. A cliff with a long drop is immediately adjacent to campsites and there is no barrier. Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted.
$5 (per private vehicle). Camping $10 (no reservations).
