"Goosenecks State Park" Utah Things to Do Tip by windsorgirl
Utah Things to Do: 328 reviews and 607 photos
Only about 30 miles north of Monument Valley you can visit this State Park with its fascinating meandering river. Here, the San Jan river flows for 6 miles yet only covers a distance of one mile. It makes a series of three sharp hairpin turns, resembling goosenecks, I guess.
Entrance to the park is free and it is a scenic roller coaster of a ride out there but I recommend to visit in the morning. We arrived in late afternoon and were looking directly into the sun, making photography very difficult! It is also impossible to fit all three goosenecks into the same frame unless you have a panoramic camera.
Directions: located nine miles north of Mexican Hat off of Hwy 261.
