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.

This is a magical place that gets many, many visitors. I normally avoid the highly popular sights, but, much like Grand Canyon NP, this could be on the bucket list...and you certainly can't miss it if you are in northern AZ. The energy was great and, apparently, there is no entrance fee. We payed quite a bit of $$ to... More

Near Page, on the border of Utah and Arizona, the Horseshoe Bend is a scenic place. The overview of the Colorado River is spectacular. An ideal place for photographs.

Pictures do not do the beauty and natural wonder of the horseshoe bend justice. Our family visited 10:30 am on a Sunday January morning. There were plenty of visitors. Horseshoe bend has it's own parking lot. The trail to horseshoe bend is a 15 - 25 min. walk with a bit of a decline/incline. At the bend, there are no... More

I first saw this bend in 1947...have returned and passed by 50 plus times over the years and each time the river, clouds and light are gifts to the eyes.

Honestly, I wasn't expecting much out of this place. You see pictures of it and know most of them are retouched! But oh boy, was I in for a surprise! I arrived in the afternoon, a couple of hours before sundown. You have to park either on the improvised parking or on the shoulder of the street. I am super... More

Definitely worth stopping by to see this. You will need to park and walk for about 10 minutes on a rough surface. Great photos opportunity but careful not to get too close to the edge to get the perfect shot as the edge can actually be very thin rock and dangerous . There is not safety rail anywhere or rangers... More

Always wanted to visit this location and finally did after a 2 day stay in Moab visiting National Parks. Beautiful drive through the desert and Monuments National Park along the way and when you finally get to page, AZ, it is only a short 1/2 mile hike to the canyon rim and this one of a kind view

we were there at 730p in mid june 2016. Decided to go a bit later to avoid the crowd and heat. It is in the desert so it was really hot when we passed the place in the afternoon. But at 730, the sun was already down, so the walk to the site was bearable. Medium level hike mostly because... More

Obviously a very popular spot, with beautiful photo opportunities. Great car park, lots of demountable rest rooms. The walk from the car park to see horse shoe bend takes about 10 minutes one way. Part of the way on sand. Read the signs in the car park. To get good photos you need to be prepared to get reasonably close... More
