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.

This is a scenic area. It is about a 1 mile walk with 1/2 up hill and half downhill. You would have to hand over the 1000 ft. cliff to get the photo shot you see in advertisements. It's free. Take water. There are other...More

This seems to be on the regular stops for tour buses. Hike from the parking lot to the canyon edge is about 3/4 mile each way. Uphill and then downhill both directions. Trail is mixture of sand and rock. There are no restrooms or other...More

While I am glad that we did take the time to stop at Horseshoe Bend, I was a little disappointed. It is almost impossible to get at the vantage point to take a photo similar to the one we are used to seeing. It is...More

Well worth the walk, be brave and take incredible photos, watching young people sit and dangle their legs over the edge

Must see. Be you must be able to walk up and down trail for 1 mile. But worth it. Amazing site. Take water to drink. Do early morning or late afternoon to be cooler.

You won't be sorry to take time out of your schedule to see this horse shoe shaped mote from above. It's gorgeous and one of the pretties things I have seen.

Very slight hike from the parking lots. Lots of other folks there but the view is spectacular, even on a rainy day.

The car park can be a bit of a free for all, and it does get busy, especially around sunset, but it's well worth a visit. As well as the horseshoe view itself, the geology of the surrounding rocks is quite fascinating.

A hot walk on desert sand so bring water and cover but the views are simply stunning. Just watching idiots stand on loose rocks to get the best shot was worth it 😡 How many lose their lives over the edge I have no idea...More

Chances are you, you'll drive by it without knowing what it is. If you have the time and you pass by anything with cars parked stop and ask what's there. I've ridden by this and the slot canyons twice without ever knowing the cool things...More

When is the best time to go? I'll be there June 8th - a Thursday, I'm coming from the Grand Canyon and hoping to be in Page by around 3PM. Is that a good time for it? Earlier? Later? Thanks in advance!

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 am planning to do horseshoe bend trail and lower antelope canyon tour right after. Trying to avoid hot sun, I am looking at 07:00 - 08:00 for horseshoe bend trail and 08:30-09:30, which I am planning to book for with Dixie's. We are having 7 & 9 years old kids with us. Do you think we have to start earlier for horseshoe bend hiking to make it for lower antelope? Looks like lower antelope starting point is only about 10 minutes away from horseshoe bend.

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
Travelling on a tour bus. Staying at hotel in Page. No car. What is the best way to get to Horseshoe Bend and then join an Antelope tour? Uber? Looks like most tours for Antelope pick up at hotels, or go directly to their offices. Are there any shuttle buses around Page for tourists?

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.
