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.

Lots of free parking, has port a johns and bathrooms, a bit of a walk to see the view, but well worth it. the hike is not too difficult, is sandy and goes downhill to get there, uphill back.

Horseshoe bend is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places my eyes have ever seen. See it! Drive a detour if required, but see it! Also do not miss Antelope Canyon. Magical places! In addition, the town of Page is a nice cozy little town...More

It's free and right off the highway. The walk is about 3/4 mile along a sand and rock trail that is up and downhill. There are signs for warnings about the trail and the need for hydration. Portable restrooms are available in the parking lot....More

Fairly easy walk with some hills to magnificent views!!! The path is wide and half way, there is a covered gazebo for resting. There are few rails so you can get as close to the edge as you want. There is another rock hill that...More

I am so glad I went there! With the exception of a walkway to Horseshoe Bend the entire site is completely untouched. I went there at the crack of dawn and the serenity at that time of the day was almost magical. There are no...More

This is one of the most beautiful places we've ever visited. We went to the lower antelope canyon and then horseshoe bend, we did both on the same day. Our trip was in June, so it was hot. It's also about 1 mile walk to...More

This is a must see in Page, AZ!!! A little trek towards the cliff wherein you will see the wonderful creation of nature. Just above the cliff, you will see a lavish view of river!

Easy hike to big views. If you don't like heights you may not enjoy looking over the edge but if you do the view are awesome.

You probably know that this feature is one of the most recognized photos in America. So if you're driving right past it, how can you not go? It's a 3/4 mile hike from the parking lot to the rim (and back), with a couple of...More

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 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
