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.

Located just outside of Page, AZ, Horseshoe Bend is a breath-taking site. You must see this if you're in Page. Depending on the time of the day, parking can be difficult. Also, be prepared for a 15-20 minute walk, partly uphill and in sandy soil, to the site. If you can make the trek, it's well worth the time and... More

Almost everyone has the picture of the horseshoe bend at his/her wallpaper at some time or the other. And the actual sight does the same justice. It's just beautiful. Remember about the very short hike to the top and also the time of the day when you are visiting. It's Arizona, so it gets hot as the day progresses. But... More

The location of Horseshoe bend is about two miles out of Page, AZ on the way to the Grand Canyon. Once you park your car you must walk about 500 yards to get to the edge of the cliff. Enjoy the beauty of the desert while walking to the cliffs. In order to take the best picture you must get... More

One of the highlights of our Southwest trip. Don't miss Horseshoe Bend if you're in the Page, Arizona area! A short easy hike will get you to the overlook. But be warned, it is a 1,000-foot drop and dangerous with no handrails for visitors. Just be sure to stay back from the edge and enjoy the incredible view!

Hike is short. We went with 3 years old and made sure he was holding hand with us ALL THE TIME and did not get too close to the cliff.

Just a short walk from the main road and you get amazing views that are among the most impressive I've ever seen, right up there with some of the national parks in Utah, the Hoover Dam and others.

This place was very crowded and was not that easy to access. There is a very steep gravel pathway leading down to it. The walk back up was tiring, although there were a coupke of benches for resting.

Beautiful at any time of day but sunset is special. Some uphill walking in sand is required so if you need walker or wheelchair, it is unfortunately, not accessible.

We went there on the Sunday of the Memorial Day weekend along with hundreds of others. Cars were parked along both sides of the road for blocks. There is a parking lot, but because of the recent rains, it was flooded, so that explained so many cars on the road. The overlook was spectacular but hard to get to because... More
