There are actually two trails, from the same parking lot - a shorter one to Gooseneck lookout and one longer to Sunset Point. Both can be done in well under an hour, and well worth the effort, as the canyon views are spectacular. It's a...More
Indeed, from here you can see the river below curving tightly and disappearing behind a cliff to reappear a little further. U-shape meanderings of the water.
Great preview of the canyon if you see this before entering Capitol Reef NP. Not for the height challenged...More
Based upon a recommendation from a co-worker, we did a little research on this area when visiting Capitol Reef NP during our Summer Road Trip. We have two kids and so we set out to complete the junior ranger activities before heading out to this...More
We didn't know what this was, so we went to look. It's an interesting look down into the canyon, with Sulfur Springs at the bottom. There is extra perspective watching hikers explore the narrow canyon far below along the creek. Goosenecks are the sharp curves.
Capitol Reef National Park is FABULOUS. At the front end, as you drive the main paved road, you will find Goosenecks Overlook. It's clearly marked, easy to get to by car. You simply take a right turn, drive a short way on a dirt road,...More

interesting information. It's not something you will walk down into but view from up top and glean some interesting geological information from the information board. I'm reviewing this...More
If you happen to drive by, the short narrow road leading to the overlook will quickly get you there, but I would not plan my route to just see the gooseneck. I find the Horseshoe Bend in Page much more spectacular. From a mere geological...More
While it’s a nice view, there are plenty of other beautiful sights in Capitol Reef. To get here, you will need to drive a short dirt road and hike a short trail. The view of the canyon is nice, though not extraordinary.
