If you happen to be around Page, this is definitely a place worth visiting especially at sunset. It is less than 5miles from Page. It is a mile walk with some areas covered by sand. There is an intermediate point from which the sunset looks amazing. From there, you walk slightly downhill. At the edge there are no railings, but... More

A beautiful area to go to, to see the bend in the Colorado River. Warning...there is a good hike to get there, but it is well worth it!

Horseshoe Bend is not to be missed. Just a short hike from US Hwy 89. People of all ages can visit this place. The views are incredible of the Colorado River and the canyon below. Make sure you don't get too close to the edge as there are no guard rails. Take a lunch and enjoy the scenery!

Up a little hill, then down the little hill, rocks all around and then your eyes will be fullfilled with someting so incredible that will be impressed in your emotion for the whole life. It's amazing the silence coming from the river, there is peace even if it's full of people all around you. This view could be enough to... More

Horseshoe Bend is a free road-side attraction off US Highway 89 south of Page, AZ. The views are incredible of the horseshoe shaped turn of the Colorado River. It's nearly a 1,000 foot vertical drop with no railings, so even the most confident visitors may get slight vertigo when peering over the edge. It's about a 1/4 mile walk from... More

Surreal , beautiful - it was a nice little hike to get there - they're are no guard rails that was a bit scary. I enjoyed all the sage that grew in the dessert leading up to the horseshoe bend.

An amazing short hike for anyone! Beautiful overlook of the Colorado River. A little scary for those afraid of heights. *if that's the case, you can still go, just don't go up to the edge!

We walked up the hill from the parking lot thinking that Horseshoe Bend would be at the top. WRONG! It was only a view of a rugged uneven hillside leading about a mile down a sloped hillside before finally reaching your destination....... and what goes down must come back up! I don't understand why the parking lot was so far... More

If you're in Page, you need to see this. It's a short hike to the viewpoints. No doubt you've seen numerous pictures on line. It's only a few minutes outside of town with lots of parking. The rock formations around the cliff are pretty cool as well. Be careful as there are overhangs with nothing but 100's of feet of... More

Nice, especially at sunset. It's definitely better than the Gooseneck. Actually once you arrive there, you stay there for a while and then you leave, there is not much to see.
