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.

About 3/4 mile walk to great views of the river canyon. Take camera, water and wear goid shoes. Terrain changes a bit, gravel sand and stone.

Unless you happen to be incredibly unfit this is a short, easy stroll to a magnificent view. All this talk of ‘challenging’ hike etc is nonsense in my view.. Don’t be put off. Takes 10-15 mins max.

A must do while in Page. It has absolutely stunning views from several different angles. Sunset is gorgeous here. Best of all it’s free.

A phenomenal natural wonder and very peaceful place to visit. It's a good hike from the parking lot over easy terrain. Lots of loose sand on the ground so watch your way. It's hard to see the entire horseshoe bend without getting really close to...More

The view is breathtaking and so is the hike. The trip down, of course, is easy, but not so the way up. I say this as I’m in my 70’s as a fair warning for other seniors or mobility impaired. The younger generation will do...More

Make sure to wear sun protection. It is a little hike and completely worth it. It is to visit and contemplate this wonder.

We saw this from the river raft below and saw the people standing on the canyon tops. We were told no tour was required so we drove in the afternoon to the tops. Absolutely stunning. Worth taking the walk to the end of the road...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
