Overview

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.

While the view is decent, the hike to get here didn’t make it worth it. It’s basically a large hill of sugar sand in full sun. It was 100 degrees the day we visited, and even just standing at the viewpoint was nearly unbearable.

We did this walk early in the morning and I am glad we did. Although some of the bend was still in shadow, the heat meant that any later would have made the short climb very strenuous. The walk is gravel/sand (ie not tarmac) and...More

I suggest to go there early in the morning before sunrise to avoid the big crowds. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as the hike from the parking lot to the Horseshoe Bend gets quite steep and exhausting.

We went on a summer afternoon, not the best idea, but the view was stunning. You need to be prepared to walk about 3/4 of a mile on hot sand to get to the bend. Wear good hiking shoes and bring lots of water. The...More

Horseshoe bend is amazing. I love it, every time we get a chance to drive to page we always stop by.

Beautiful views and easy sight seeing. There’s a large parking lot and a short hike to the edge. Be careful since there is no railing. Easily can be done in a few hours.

What a sight to see, just amazing. There is a bit of a hike/walk to get there and it is hot so take plenty of water. Like most popular sights its popularity spoils it a little as there were lots of people. Maybe go early...More

Amazing place to visit. Stunning views. Bring water and an umbrella is recommended for shade. It is a short hike but in the summer the sun can be harsh.

We were there the first week of May, and there was no barrier yet. it is super close to Page (maybe 5-8 minutes out of town?), so I'm sure you could Uber with no problem.
