Head south from Page on US 89. The parking lot is on the right. Park in the paved parking lot. Head up the hill to the west, then down to the view point. There are no rails or safety things. Use your head. I think it is best for photography when it is cloudy.

Nice walk and very rewarding when you get there, no handrails at the bottom but the view is outstanding, sunset is supposed to be the best but 2 hours before was beautiful as well

If you are around the Page, Arizona and lake Powell area, go visit this place, specially at sunset. It is beautiful, easy to get to (an easy 20 min hike) and completely free. I met a few very interesting people there, but unfortunately also was a large group of people that were having a lot of fun (good for them),... More

Be ready to see one of the most amazing sights in AZ, tourists. Yeap even at 9 AM in a freezing december morning, it's packed. And the canyon itself is pretty nice too look at, But, yeah If you've seen the pictures you have seen all there was to see. Don't get me wrong it's a great place to go.... More

I've been there mid-december and it was so crowded. I wanted to see it but I had low expectations. There's nothing especially crazy about this place and it's PACKED with tourists. the experience is a bit ruined.

Long hike up and over a hill, at this altitude it can be strenuous. Photos you see of the bend can not be taken without getting dangerously close to the edge of the canyon. Would' chance it. Go in the morning hours when the sun won't be in your face and photographs will come out better. Worth the stop but... More

This very short hike took us to an amazing view! It was incredible! The colors of the scenery were beautiful and being out on the edge was thrilling.

A must see even if it is out of the way. The climb up and then down the hill was a trek but not so bad as this lady doesn't do so well with strenuous hikes. The sand you walk on could be a trial for us older folk but it manageable if you take your time. It was cold... More

Horseshoe Bend is such a breathtaking view. It's easy to get to, there's no charge, you can stay as long as you want and there is an excellent cell phone signal so you can post as many photos as your heart desires. I feel so lucky to have seen so much beauty.
