Goosenecks of the San Juan
Goosenecks of the San Juan is a great example of an entrenched meander. Here the San Juan River, en route to the Colorado River and Lake Powell, has carved a 1,000 ft. deep gorge. The San Juan River at this point meanders a distance of 5 miles while only crossing a single linear mile. Many visitors come simply to admire the view and photograph the formations. The Goosenecks overlook is located in Southeastern, Utah on Cedar Mesa. The Moki Dugway Road drops 1,200 ft. to the floor of the Valley of the Gods if you continue on the road to the southwest.

Goosenecks of the San Juan has an unpaved but decent road that goes to a viewpoint. This makes it easier for visitors to come and and enjoy the area.

Location: Southern Utah, approx. 10-15 miles north of Mexican Hat. Take 261 to 316. Follow 316 to the viewpoint
