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.
