Owner description: 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.

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 before the tour buses get there.

Horseshoe bend is a must-go place. Must pick a good time to go because it is hot in June and the trail is sandy. Make sure to bring water/umbrella/hats and wear comfy shoes for hiking up and down the sandy slopes. But it is all worth it! Picture was taken using go pro by amateurs!

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.

You’ve seen the photos. The real thing is 100 times more awesome and terrifying. You can walk right up to sheer 1,000-foot drops (there are no fences) and see the blue-green Colorado River below. Way below.

Be prepared for a dusty, hilly 15-minute hike from the parking lot. The effort is worth it. The view is beyond spectacular.

We made a quick stop here on our way home from Utah to AZ. Plenty of parking, even space for busses/rvs/campers, etc. Be prepared for a short walk, but with very little shade - take water!

There are no guard rails, but some are currently under construction. It can be very dangerous (someone slipped to their death shortly after our visit) so watch your step! We did go with a 3 and 4 year old but held onto them with a death grip far from the edge, so it’s possible to take small children as long as you are vigilant! There were so many people hopping around and sitting on the edge. The ground is slippery and rocks erode, so use caution.

All that said though, it’s a BEAUTIFUL sight and definitely worth the stop! I’d say allow for an hour for the walk and to view it.

Just south of the bend on the highway is a small little area where you can hike down and see slot canyons similar to Antelope Canyon. It’s on Tribal lands so you do have to pay a small fee for a permit. We stopped quickly and my husband ran down to check it out. There were lots of cars lined up with people taking their dogs and kids, so also worth checking out! Just be aware of flash floods.
