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

It's about a mile or so hike on a sandy trail with some hills to get to an amazing view. The work is worth the reward!! A lot of pictures out there are photoshopped and you may not get as glorious of a view depending on when you go (sunrise/sunset v. midday) but no matter what I don't understand how... More

I went an hour before sunset and it was mobbed with buses of tourists (and the lighting is washed out for you photographers...the cliffs face west). I returned the next morning just after sunrise and for a good 20 mins I was the only one there. Lighting would have been best a few hours later, but the solitude and morning... More

Yes, you will walk for a bit in sand - miserable, deep sand. Believe me, it is worthwhile. The view is incredible. When you go, make certain that you go far to the left and right of the main area, as the pictures change with the vantage point. Take some water and a good camera, as the views are breathtaking....

Bit of a hike up a large sand dune from car park, and down the other side. Remember you have to walk back - so take water. NO GUARD RAILS, so keep young children with you. Quite scarey looking down into Colorado River over a 1,000 feet down. Not good if you are scared of heights, I realised I am... More

An easy 15 min walk to the edge, this is a 'do not miss' if you are anywhere near Page. Absolutely stunning.

Impressive view you will remember all your life ! You will get there after a quick hike of 15 min in the sand. Fortunately we went there in a sunny October morning, so it was not too hot.

Went to Horseshow Bend. Got there about 45 minutes before sunset. This place gets crowded. If you are there to take pictures of the sunset, get there early so you can get a prime area to set up your tripod. You want to get as close to the edge as possible. You will need a tripod and a remote shutter... More

Unparalleled beauty. I wish we could have been there when it was quieter but it didn't spoil the experience.

Went here after visiting antelope Canyon as it's only about a 10 min drive. View was amazing. It's about a 20 min walk from the parking lot. On the way back to the parking lot it's almost all uphill in sand. If you have a difficult time walking may not be very easy. But you can spend as much time... More
