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.

From the parking lot it is about a 20 minute hike up a steep hill and down the other side to the edge of horseshoe bend. There are signs that say don't go right to the edge, but of course everyone is right at the edge to get the best picture and there are no guard rails. Mid day is... More

A 10 mins drive from the nearby motels, this place is a treat to the eyes.Drive in before sunrise and secure yourself aa perfect spot to catch the changing colors with sun rays. Carry a selfie stick to have better clicks if you are not carrying professional camera equipment.

Defiantly take a drive and a short hike to Horseshoe Bend. The colors are fantastic and the scene is surreal.

Went here before going to Lower Antelope Canyon as we had some time to spare. There was about 15 minutes hike and we saw some older ladies on our back, so I think it's a pretty decent hike for older people? Anyway, this is one of the best places I've been too! Too bad our camera wasn't wide enough to... More

Every hour of every day offers new photography opportunities! If visiting in the summer months, bring plenty of water. Worth the effort.

Visit during sunset and you will love the view and get great pictures. Don't rush and spend some time enjoying the view

Amazing view of the Colorado river. Lots of polite but loud tourists from Asia. Watch for the number of tour buses and you will know what you are in for. Watch your step. Natural views at their best.

Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe shaped section of the Colorado River as it makes a 270 degree turn. It is a short drive if you stay in Page, AZ. The site has free parking and is accessible via a short hike. The view is especially beautiful during sunset.

I spent a few hours here, just hanging out, enjoying the scenery as the light changed during late afternoon into sunset. Not a good place for quiet solitude, as there's a lot of other people around, but it is very beautiful. Nice little walk to get there from the parking lot, but not ideal for the mobility impaired.
