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.

Amazing place. Red sandstone layers, distant views, dramatic canyon 's cliffs, emerald Colorado. Have in mind to walk around one km in red dust one way into the hill and on the way back. Take water and umbrella ( parasols). Covered shoes only!!!!

This is absolutely gorgeous, just like all the photos you have seen. The hike really isn't bad... it is a bit steep, but it's quite short, and I think the vast majority of people, even older folks and people who are not in excellent physical...More

Horseshoe Bend is very beautiful and unique albeit excessively dangerous. If you have small children, please keep a close eye on them. THERE ARE NO GUARDRAILS. The canyon is several hundred feet below; even for an adult, very scary. Many people there are trying to...More

It was little too hot to walk from the parking lot but the view from the top was breathtaking. I expected more water in the Colorado river but the dam was just upstream; so, they control the outflow.

We went in May 2017 and at the time it was raining on and off during the day. We were hesitant whether or not we should go. We ended up going regardless of the heavy rain and it was well worth it. The sun cleared...More

This is just outside of town off of the highway, clearly marked. There is no admission fee. The hike is strenuous for anyone, at any age - it is a sand trail that challenges you. You have to go up the hill to a point...More

While I'm glad we went, the view did not quite equal that of the pictures I've seen - perhaps they were taken either from a ladder or a helicopter. there is ample parking but the walk is in full sun at anytime of day and...More

If you are in Page, Arizona or passing through you need to stop here and see this beauty! When you park there is about a mile to mile and a half walk to the bend but so worth the walk once you arrive!

Slight hike to get to but well worth the view. Sunset views are better, we went mid day, still a cool place to visit but photography would have been better with different lighting.

Plentiful and free parking. Short walk with nice views, and it was fun to look out over the cliff at Horseshoe Bend. It was busy, but there was plenty of space to spread out along the rocks. I'd recommend wearing sneakers though.

3pm is fine. It will be warm and there is a bit of an uphill hike to get to the viewing area. Bring water and wear a hat. Also... THERE IS NO RAILING ON THE EDGE! If you have little explorers keep a close eye on them.

I would allow 2 hours for the Horseshoe Bend. It is 10 minutes walking to the Bend from the parking lot. You also need to walk around the upper rims of the Bend and take pictures. One hour is too rushed to do all this... More

I'm sorry, we had a car and had no information about moving around. Call Jackie at Canyon X tours (friend of Coco) at 928-660-8961. They are new and very helpful; may be able to help.
