If you can fit this into your schedule, it's worth your time. You just step out of your car and you are there, so it's accessible to everyone. There is even a washroom on site. You will only need to spend 5-10 minutes here to soak it in. You can get a view of Monument Valley and some nice pictures... More

Not close to anything, but near a few things a ways away. You have to go looking for it. You'll be happy when you do.

The viewpoint is a must see! It's quite unik! And easy to get to, when you are driwing from Monument Valley to Moab.

We saw a lot of glorious scenery on our recent trip through parts of Arizona and Utah, but nothing else was as bleak and barren as Goosenecks. Evidently it is so arid there that all is black, and despite the drama of the multiple bends in the river bed I found the sight chilling and unappealing

This is a short stop to view grand nature in work. On our way to Monument Valley, we made a quick stop there as we saw a great picture of it on Bing home page. it is nothing you can describe. Such a strange shape and bareland. Made you wonder you are at a different world and how little human... More

It had wonderful views of the San Juan River below as it bends and twists round the valley. It isn't far from Monument Valley and very near the Valley of the Gods. There we stopped for our lunch at the picnic table. The only other facility there is a rest room.

It's not that far off the main road. Pay attention once you turn on the road into the park because there is no shoulder. Going off the road could be hazardous to your vehicle. I wouldn't want to try and get a hold of a tow truck out there. Once you get back to the overlook, it's quite amazing. No... More

You'll have to want to go here, because it's not a quick drive-by like some of the arches to the north. It's not that far off the highway, but you may feel like you're the only car on earth as you make your way out to this amazing place. The great San Juan River has had its way with the... More

Can't add much to the other reviews or pictures; it's a quick stop. We did it on a day driving trip that included Bluff, Mexican Hat, and Valley of the Gods. We were happy to pay the $2 self-pay fee although most people didn't. :( There are rest rooms (which were being cleaned while we were there, unlike MANY vault... More
