Gooseneck Trail

Gooseneck Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Gooseneck Trail leads to an overlook point high above a huge meander of the Colorado River. The Colorado turns abruptly north below the overlook and then bends around to the south again, tracing out a 180-degree arc that is four miles long. Dead Horse Point State Park is situated just one mile north of the Gooseneck, and many visitors stop to gaze 1,900 feet down at the river from that vantage point. But in some ways the view from the Gooseneck Trail is better.

The river is only 940 feet below Gooseneck Overlook and it is not possible to see the entire meander from there, but standing nearly a thousand feet above the river at a point that is also a thousand feet below the canyon rim provides its own special sensation. From there you aren't just looking into the canyon, you surrounded by it. Trail: Well marked, easy to follow."
