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.

Sunset is a great time to see this - although it was a bit crowded - you could still easily find a great spot to watch the sun go down over the canyon. Nice, easy (but sandy) walk to get there.

Wow! Horseshoe Bend is a must see. Bring water, a great camera and some time to take it all in. We had just toured Lower Antelope Canyon, and our guide suggested we stop at Horseshoe Bend. I'm so glad we did. It was an easy...More

This place was top on my list even after visiting the grand canyon! Takes a short walk, very windy when we visited in late April 2017. The wind blew up out of canyon. When walking down the hill towards the canyon, I lost my balance...More

We hiked to the Horseshoe bend lookout point after floating through it on a raft. The hike is not for anyone out of shape. Meaning, if you are not exercising on a regular basis, it is going to kick your butt. There were several people...More

The mile and a half hike round trip doesn't sound too daunting but with the elevation and the heat index was something else. Despite all that, pictures will never do this site justice it is truly a must see.

Short drive from Page, AZ and Antelope Canyon. Amazing in person, pics don't do justice. It is sweltering so try to visit early in morning.

About a half to three quarters of a mile one way. You will go up hill and then down in sand. When you get there it is a gorgeous site high above the Colorado river. No railings, a few rocks to climb. Take water.

This is a very short hike to wonderful spot above the colorado river. You will be amazed by all the chinese doing selfies in very dangerous situations.

When is the best time to go? I'll be there June 8th - a Thursday, I'm coming from the Grand Canyon and hoping to be in Page by around 3PM. Is that a good time for it? Earlier? Later? Thanks in advance!

3pm is fine. It will be warm and there is a bit of an uphill hike to get to the viewing area. Bring water and wear a hat. Also... THERE IS NO RAILING ON THE EDGE! If you have little explorers keep a close eye on them.

I am planning to do horseshoe bend trail and lower antelope canyon tour right after. Trying to avoid hot sun, I am looking at 07:00 - 08:00 for horseshoe bend trail and 08:30-09:30, which I am planning to book for with Dixie's. We are having 7 & 9 years old kids with us. Do you think we have to start earlier for horseshoe bend hiking to make it for lower antelope? Looks like lower antelope starting point is only about 10 minutes away from horseshoe bend.

I would allow 2 hours for the Horseshoe Bend. It is 10 minutes walking to the Bend from the parking lot. You also need to walk around the upper rims of the Bend and take pictures. One hour is too rushed to do all this... More
Travelling on a tour bus. Staying at hotel in Page. No car. What is the best way to get to Horseshoe Bend and then join an Antelope tour? Uber? Looks like most tours for Antelope pick up at hotels, or go directly to their offices. Are there any shuttle buses around Page for tourists?

I'm sorry, we had a car and had no information about moving around. Call Jackie at Canyon X tours (friend of Coco) at 928-660-8961. They are new and very helpful; may be able to help.
