Fodor's Review

From the overlook you can peer down on what geologists claim is the best example of an "entrenched meander" in the world. The river's serpentine course resembles the necks of geese in spectacular 1,000-foot-deep chasms. Although the Goosenecks of the San Juan River is a state park, no facilities other than pit toilets are provided, and no fee is charged. You'll find it 10 miles northwest of Mexican Hat, off Highway 261.
