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

Went to the Horseshoe bend after the walk down we realised we had been 20 years ago and I think we were on our own there It was just as fascinating and always helpful if you can meet a nice young French man who is willing to risk his life and hang over the rim and take good photos for... More

Saw pictures before we left and WOW they were spot on. We took the raft and saw it from below.....BUT WOW taking the walk and seeing it from the top is something not to be missed. Take some water, take your time, and BE CAREFUL. The walk back takes more out of you that going down, but still not a... More

The view is great but its a good mile walk. Don't be fooled by the sandy hill from the car park it's worse the other side, the walk is worth it but strong legs are needed, allow an hour to walk both ways at least.

Saw this on the way from the North Rim to the South Rim...was worth the stop. Be prepared to walk a little ways from the parking lot to get the full view.

A great place to watch the sun go down. Watch the sides of the canyon change colour as the sun drops below the horizon. It's a bit of a walk from the car but well worth it.

Went there in July 2009. The view was fantastic, we can see it really look like a horse shoe shape. Just that it will be quite dangerous if you are taking selfie. Need to lookout as there is no barrier there so might drop down and please be careful. There is also about a mile walk before your reach the... More

Since I was in the area, I had to go see Horseshoe Bend for myself. Got to the parking lot and saw a hill and thought....that must be it. No, 3/4 of a mile walk down to the gorge and the awesome sight appeared. Its a walk through some thick sand so be prepared. Also, please adhere to the DANGER... More

Be sure to go early and take plenty of water. There is only one place where there is shade. You do have a ways to walk, which isn't to bad on the way down. The views are great. There are no railings, so must use common sense. If you have problems with breathing, be sure to take your time.

My sister and I visited Horseshoe Bend for the sunset. This Bend is only a 5 minute drive out of Page, AZ and would be a shame for anyone to not see it while they are there.

Gorgeous view without having to pay any fees. Have to take a short, HOT and sandy hike to get to the edge of the canyon that overlooks horseshoe bend but the view is awesome. No rails to keep your kids (or yourself) from running off the edge and the sand on the rock (which is also sandstone i believe) can... More
