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.

It's quite a walk from the parking to the cliff itself, and I would highly recommend not taking children as it has no guard rails or ropes to prevent them from falling over the edge. There's a fantastic view, and there's plenty of space to get the perfect picture. Just use good judgment!

We drove up to horseshoe bend and parked. Got out of truck and started following everyone up the path. We did not stop and read the sign. Let me tell you one of the important messages on the sign we read after viewing Horseshoe Bend. It says it is a 3 quarter mile hike. We did not read this before... More

Lovely spot with beautiful views but can be very busy at times. We saw it from above one evening and then floated around it with the Colorado River Discovery the next day.

Hands down the most beautiful place I have ever seen! Absolutely stunning. This is nature at it's finest. When you pull in it's just a dirt parking lot. There are no bathrooms, no snacks, no water, so be prepared and take care of these things before you arrive. You have to walk down about a half mile to the bend.... More

This is a breathtaking sight to see the horseshoe shaped path made by the colorado river. The hike is uphill and through sandy terrain so wear comfortable shoes and hat if you hiking during day time as there is no shade. We went to see the sunset and I must tell you it was an awesome sight. Be careful with... More

I have to say I wasn't expecting much but one you get to the rim of this canyon you'll be amazed how big it is. Now that I've said that here's the real download on this disaster waiting to happen. First you have to be looking for the crowds and cars parked along the highway as the parking lots is... More

One og the fred experiences we had on our trip and a great one too. Horseshoe bend is breathtaking, but we were also very nervous and had an extra eye out for our children,as there is no fence.

A must see!! It was unbelievably gorgeous! When you park your car, you need to walk uphill so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. If you go during the summer, wear sunscreen, wear a hat and take water. When you finally make it to the top of the hill and you see Horseshoe Bend, it's breathtaking!! Highly recommend going! Best...

Slow down as you come into Page and watch closely for the sign. Smallish parking lot fills up but can park along the sides of the road leading into the parking lot. Take some water with you, some up and down hill hiking in sand & rocks is required. The view is totally amazing but there are no guard rails... More

You can't miss going to the bend if you are in Page. It's a walk to get there but it's worth the effort. Great view of the river and the canyon it passes through.
