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.

A bit further removed from the South or North Rims of the Grand Canyon but if you are in the area definitely worth the stop to enjoy this site. Just a short walk over the hill from the parking lot bring you to the edge...More

Beautiful place to visit. We went in July and be warned it is very very hot and a bit of a hike. Luckily I had an umbrella to use. Bring plenty of water but it is worth it.

If you are in Page, AZ and don't go here, you are missing a great sight. It takes about 30 minutes more or less to walk to the overlook. It's an amazing view. We went at sunrise in October 2016, and the lighting was perfect...More

One of the must see places if you visit Page, Arizona. Its a short walk from the car park but definitely worth the walk. You will be in awe when you first see it. Go at sunset for a jaw dropping image of the canyon.

Very disappointed. Way too many people taking risks for photos. No railings along the cliff...thought for sure I was going to witness somebody’s death here! Stressful place!

Gorgeous views-worth the hike! Soon there will be a paved path to the overlook, which will make it easier for the elderly and handicapped to visit. New area with railing, safer for families with kids. Must see! We visited just before sunset, after a rain....More

The most amazing and terrifying thing to see. There is no guardrails and tons of people not paying attention to their surroundings. Very glad we did this.

This place is mind blowing. A little crowded but I can see why. This place made me realize where we as humans stand In the scheme of things of this beautiful planet of ours. I am definitely coming back again.

We visited in August at 6:15am so glad we went early. The car park was getting quite busy at that time with a mid-70 temp. Wonderful view when we reached the top as we saw the sun gradually entering the canyon. Another fabulous location checked...More

Like most people you see this on the internet and decide to go there. The parking lot is big and is almost always full. Go early or else just be lucky to find a parking. It is over a 20 minute walk from the parking...More

It’s not a very steep climb. If your parents are at a normal fitness level and don’t have mobility problems, they should be fine. It’s possible to view the bend from afar, but obviously will not give the same experience. I... More
