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.

Definitely worth stopping by to see this. You will need to park and walk for about 10 minutes on a rough surface. Great photos opportunity but careful not to get too close to the edge to get the perfect shot as the edge can actually be very thin rock and dangerous . There is not safety rail anywhere or rangers... More

Always wanted to visit this location and finally did after a 2 day stay in Moab visiting National Parks. Beautiful drive through the desert and Monuments National Park along the way and when you finally get to page, AZ, it is only a short 1/2 mile hike to the canyon rim and this one of a kind view

we were there at 730p in mid june 2016. Decided to go a bit later to avoid the crowd and heat. It is in the desert so it was really hot when we passed the place in the afternoon. But at 730, the sun was already down, so the walk to the site was bearable. Medium level hike mostly because... More

Obviously a very popular spot, with beautiful photo opportunities. Great car park, lots of demountable rest rooms. The walk from the car park to see horse shoe bend takes about 10 minutes one way. Part of the way on sand. Read the signs in the car park. To get good photos you need to be prepared to get reasonably close... More

You read about it, you exoect the view to be great, but still have seeing it in real life is amazing... As a single spot to view the Colorado River, this place beats the Grand Canyon. The walk in is not hard, a bit of a hill on the way back. As long as it's not super hot, it's fine.... More

I have been there 3 times. It is so beautiful there. It is nearby the antelope valley. And the sunset time is the best moment to enjoy. So you can visit antelope valley in the morning then visit here in the later afternoon. After sunset, you may stay a little bit longer and take the chance to see red cloud.... More

This place is amazing. There is a car park on the side of the highway just south of Page, Arizona. You then need to walk over the desert on a sandy track for about 15 minutes. You will then reach the rim of the canyon for one of the most amazing views in the world. The photos do not do... More

When we arrived into Page from the Grand Canyon, we wondered why there were so many cars parked in the lot by the side of the road here about 4 miles south of town. It was the famous Horseshoe Bend Vista. You park and hike an easy path to the edge of the canyon for the famous view. It can... More
