Page is the jewal in the crown,what looks like a half mile walk in the sand and scrub finishes with the most awesome sight of the horseshoe bend. You would never know it was there if it wasnt for the constant trail of walkers going to it. It was one of the most memorable sights of my holiday.

If you fear heights, like me, then this place will push every panic button in you. If you want the definitive photo of horseshoe bend, you need to walk (or crawl) to the edge of a rock overhang, hang your head over, extend your arms over and take the photo. There are no railings or special photo areas. But wow,... More

Be prepared to walk over sand for about a mile from the parking lot. We thought it was just that little hill we saw but then we had to walk down for a while. A little hard to walk back, pace your self. It was gorgeous! Worth it!

Very short and easy hike, beautiful scenery. You really need to visit this place as soon as possible... many Grand canyon locations started to put fences up at the edge, Horse shoe bend still have nothing, you can stand right at the edge of the 1000 ft cliff... however, they said someone fell years ago because of rock break underneath,...

Free, close to the road and only a short walk to the edge. This is an unbelievable place folks. The drive from durango co was so beautiful. We took so many pictures and sat in disbelief, not realizing how amazing this place is, was my mistake. I laugh when i say, I'm mad at my parents for not taking me... More

Small walk is definitely worth the view you get. We took a very nice postcard picture over there to send home.

Our kids are 8 & 9 and had been asking to go for a "hike". This was a nice quick little intro for them as it's about 20 minutes each way - not too much of a commitment Much of the path is sand and a little difficult to navigate (as well as clean out of your shoes, eyes, ears,... More

It''s a walk of about 3/4 mile each way, a bit of a hill on the way back. Well worth it - a great view. Don't go near the edge of you are the least bit afraid of heights - no guard rials and signs saying the rocks are undercut!

The walk in sand is a little strenuous but worth it. Bring water with you. Figure about 1/2 to 3/4 mile each way.
