  • Get out of your car and go look at this amazing place! It's worth the walk and time to see the whole layout of the goosenecks. Beautiful!  more »
  • The Goosenecks Overlook is on the same road as the Panorama and Sunset Points. It is a short walk to the viewpoint from the parking, and gives (literally) a breathtaking view of the river and canyon.....  more »
  • Fantastic place to see the night sky! If you find yourself in Capitol Reef NP and are an amateur sky gazer ... this overlook is a secluded spot only a mile off Utah Route 24. On the night I went, I was the only one back there which made for a peaceful hour gazing above.
  • Great little stop to over look the valley. 360degree views. Great place for sunrise and sunset photos. Just park your car and walk a few hundred feet and you can see all across the valley.
