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. « less

A must see! Would highly recommend making the half mile trek down to the edge of the cliffs to peer down. Beautiful!

Hiked this about 10:30 in the morning. It was hot and no shade. I knew this and was prepared with water, sunscreen, and hat. This was still not as easy as some people make it sound. I am in reasonably good shape, but the incline coming back and the deep sand made the hike more difficult. Still it is a... More

Horseshoe bend is accessible by a 20 or so minute hike, easy enough, but the deep sand made it more difficult. I've been trying to find time to come here for years, I'm glad I finally made it. I rushed to make it for sunset, thought the photos would be insane.... the views were great, but the suns position made... More

Our family (2kids, and grandmother in tow) started to the hike to see the Horseshoe Bend, but unfortunately we were unprepared for the hike. It was about 1:00 in the afternoon and very hot. We were told it was a short hike, but it was about 1 mile. My advice: bring water, cover from the sun, and be prepared to... More

Came after doing antelope canyon, so we arrived about 1030am. It was crowded, but we were able to go to a less crowded spot off center of the main view. We were able to take it in and get photos too, but I would think sunrise, sunset would be better.

If you are in Page AZ to see Antelope and other canyons, this is not to be missed. The Colorado river makes a U-turn with a rock in the middle that provides stunning images, particularly at sunset. Take a wide – angle camera for the best pictures and a tripod helps with low, fading light. But beware, the hike is... More

this place has an astonishing view once you reach the top. It takes around 15-20 mins to reach the edge from parking lot. But once you reach there you want to spend more time there watching the breathtaking view. It was worth going all the way from Grand Canyon to visit this place.

After a short walk you are at the edge. :) It's unbelievable, to see that in real life. I was afraid of going to the edge so far... We spent a lot of time here, watched the sun go down and took a lot of pictures. Page is simply amazing. I wished, we would have spent some more days here.

Horseshoe Bend is without a question a fantastic place to see. Yes, it is packed with people especially during sunset. Take something to eat and enjoy a romantic moment. Don't forget to bring your camera. The walk from the parking lot is approx 15 minutes to the edge. Plan in at least 15 minutes at the edge to inhale this... More
