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

If you are planning a visit to the Grand Canyon, I'd strongly recommend adding Antelope Canyon and the Bend in Page, AZ to your itinerary (If you're a local..Lucky you, you get to explore all the beauty at your own pace!). The Bend is a short walk away from the road so obviously it gets very crowded. You'll have to... More

If you are in Page you have to see it! This place is much more impressive than Grand Canyon: the red of the rocks, the vertical walls and at the bottom the green of the river will leave you breathless! However, if you suffer dizziness it is better you not go as there are no protections and when we went... More

This is a short hike off a main highway in Page and is well worth it. If you're going to take pictures, you're going to need a wide angle lens or to use a panorama feature, because horseshoe bend is massive. The hike back is tougher than you'd think walking in, because it is all uphill in the heat (at... More

Pros: -bucket list item -gorgeous -close to other attractions Cons: -1.5 mile walk round trip - can be hot, so go early morning, dress appropriately, and TAKE WATER! - incline and rough terrain, so should be fit with appropriate footwear

A definite must-do if you are in Page. We visited this before heading over to the Upper Antelope. It is about 10 minutes away from the Navajo parking lot. The hike is easy. Make sure you bring water. Your shoes will get filled with sand. There's a park ranger at the bottom of the beginning of the trail. There's a... More

It was only by chance that we happened upon Horseshoe Bend on our way back to Las Vegas from Antelope Canyon. We sure were not disappointed that we had made the effort, in the blazing heat, with a storm brewing above us, to walk out and take a look. This is an incredibly beautiful viewpoint and we have a whole... More

just 10 minutes walk from the main road and you'll get a suberb view of Little Colorado river and the canyon. The view from this point is amazing!

A superb photo opportunity just a few miles out side of Page.....and its FREE. Crossing over the bridge (from the resort), simply follow the road for approx 15 min til you spot mile marker 13. Chances are you'll see all the cars parked up on the left. There is no shade and a roughish 3/4 of a mile walk. Go... More

Short hike to the bend then you get spectacular views potentially. We went though at around 6pm which was perhaps not the best time to catch it as it was quite hard to see but beautiful all the same. Also a lot of loud tourists at the time we went so perhaps choose a different time but well worth a... More
