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.

We did both the Sunrise and Sunset, the Sunrise Trumps the Sunset views. There is a slight hike, kids, and elderly made it. Even a gentleman with an oxygen tank. He would just stop on the way. Worth the Hike! Please read my remarks on Slot Canyon Hummer Adventures and Dara Thai Restaurant

This is a must see for anyone willing to take a short walk out to it. No railings or safety devices, so careful where you step, however the views and river are amazing from way up top. Definitely a must see.

Awesome view of the Horseshoe bend and you take an short hike to the canyon edge. Breathtaking! Be sure to bring camera and binoculars.

Well worth a visit, however it is a good hike (ca. 1 mile moderate rough terrain) to get to the edge - don't go too close - there is no safety rail. Not to be missed but do not expect the professional pictures taken from a helicopter (unless you own your own helicopter), from the ground you will only get... More

Unbelievable! This awesome geologic formation is a splendid example of nature at its best! There is a short hike to the rim of the overlook, and I do mean rim! There are no guard rails, so seek the edge at your own risk. For myself, I scooted to the rim on my abdomen, due to a fear of heights, and... More

It is scary at the top... but the view is spectacular. It had snowed a day earlier when we went so had to be extra careful on the edges. Really a quintessential example of natural beauty. There was portable washrooms available near the parking. You will have to walk at least 1/2 miles from parking to reach horseshoe bend. you... More

Not too far from the page city, yet it is very natural place. you only need to walk around 1 mile from the parking lot until you reach the edge of the cliff. But beware if you bring your young children that are counting as a very active child that love running around, because there is no fences, no signs... More

There is a small hike to get to the actually scenic bend. It was neat to see the horseshoe bend in the river, but once again over crowded with people at sunset. Also, don't go here if you're afraid of heights. Be careful with children as there are no guard rails. Also, no facilities so come prepared with water and... More
