Overview
More
Horseshoe Bend is the intimate Grand Canyon experience (although technically located in Glen Canyon.) The trailhead to this 3/4 mile hike is located just outside of Page, Arizona. It overlooks one of the most spectacular views on the Colorado River, 4 miles south of the Glen Canyon Dam, and 7 miles north of mile zero of the Grand Canyon.

Horseshoe Bend was one of the most stunning sites I have ever visited. It is about a 1 mile hike that does have an uphill portion, and thus may be slightly difficult for elderly/young children. However, the view at the end is well-worth the trek....More

After visiting Sedona, the Grand Canyon and Lower Antelope Canyon - and enjoying stunning sites along the way -- I didn't have high expectations for Horseshoe Bend. However, my family absolutely loved it. It's an easy 3/4-mile walk with areas to climb if you'd like...More

Horseshoe Bend is a picturesque twist in the Colorado River, easily viewable from a high overlook just off route 89 a few minutes outside the city of Page. Until now, the overlook was little more than a sandy parking lot and a sandy trail to...More

A hilly walk to see this must-see site. It will soon be a fee-area we were told, so we are glad we got in before the extra charge. I found it much more impressive than the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Unreal how people...More

Don't go and expect to be alone - you can see already at the parking lot how many people are there. The cliffs are loaded with people, so you have to squeeze in to take pictures. Many people doing crazy things on edge to get...More

I visited early morning to miss the crowds. Was rather windy but still wonderful to see. There is plenty space to view the bend down down below. Defiantly worth a visit and only 10 minute drive from Page.

It is not recommended to go there in the dark, there are no railings to view the bend and it could be slippery with the sand on the rocks. Extreme care must be taken when going close to the cliff.

No guard rails installed. But, constructions are underway and it looks like there are plans to build some kind of viewing deck! Enjoy it now before it happens next year - word on the street also NPS will start charging a fee... More
