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...more
All reviews parking lot be careful short hike the cliff colorado river bring water view is amazing wide angle lens viewing area parking area soft sand afraid of heights easy hike half mile take your time grand canyon bottle of water
This is a beautiful view and round trip can easily be done in 45 minutes once in parking lot. 3/4 mile hike is all and we spent 15 minutes looking at the view but more time could be spent if you wanted. Short drive outside...More
It’s a short walk from the parking area and worth every minute you spend there. The only negative is that the Park Service is doing construction and putting buildings in an area that was virgin. A little sad to see.

This is a beautiful view. It is not what I would call an easy walk - mostly sand and small gravel. I would suggest taking water with you. It is mostly downhill on the way there and uphill on the way back. We went on...More
Arrive early because this is a super popular spot. Parking an become a challenge. A winding rocky open desert like trail leads to the overlook. Lots of photo and selfie takers and those who wander on rocks off trail. Disappointed to see some litter and...More
This trail is frequently described as short but difficult, however, it was short and easy. Tons of crowds by the guard rail, but if you walk 3 minutes to the right or left you can have views to yourself.
Heard that this will be paid...More

By the nature of the terrain, I would say mid afternoon would be the best if you want no shadows. What I wanted to do, but was unable, was to show up as the sun was going down and shoot long exposures until after dark. By blending them, I think you could come up with something fantastic.
