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.

We were on our way from Grand Canyon to Zion NP. We were told by people we met not to miss this place as we were foreigners. I was glad we took the advice. The size of the horseshoe bend is unbelieverable, it is liken to seeing the Grand Canyon the first time. Photos, I believe cannot display the size... More

A short 15 minute walk (take water as very exposed, no shade) but worth every step. Unlike Antelope Canyon, this stunning vista is free and you can spend as long as you like there without being hassled by the next tour behind! It is very peaceful and I could have stood and looked at the view for hours.

To take in over the Horseshoe bend, you need to walk a little bit away from the parking. We've been there at 7:30 in the morning which was pretty convenient because it was not too crowdy... and the light was perfect even if cloudy ! This is a must to see. You won't regret it !

I visited there for sunset and got there just in time. The views were very nice. However the walk from the parking lot to the edge of the river was too difficult for my wife and therefore she stayed at the overlook at the top of the area. If you can walk the half mile and have time to stop... More

My father and I are both photographers and added horseshoe to our list of places to visit in Page. It was an incredibly windy when we arrived by the bend and we were getting pelted with sand and small rocks! It was extremely uncomfortable. Then we moved away from the crowd all the way to left as we could. For... More

Amazing spot. Very high and taking photos can be a bit nerve-wracking but once you nailed that shot you feel like you have really achieved something! Tip: if you're weak-kneed just lay on your belly for the shot.

We had been to Page years ago and didn't even know about this amazing natural beautiful free attraction!!! Sunset at the Bend is one of our fondest memories from our entire road trip through the Canyon area. It was truly amazing. Do not miss it.....it is a short walk from the parking area located a few miles before Page. Easy,... More

Didn't have a chance to see this at sunset, last night there were storms, but firstly went to the antelope canyon to book our tour and then to this visa before the miday heat. The hike to the horse shoe is uphill to start with then levels before a downward slope. The view is quite stunning but you have to... More

Very very nice, but I got yelled at when I found a foreigners credit card there(Horseshoe Bend) and tried to do a good deed and return it to the proper authorities in Page?

Went around 9am. There is a 15 minute walk to get to the bend. It's a sandy track with no shade, uphill first followed by a long downhill section. The sun was still pretty low, so much of the bend was still in shadow. Would recommend going a bit later in the day, but beware of the heat!
