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.

Stunning views.

Beautiful views. The hike isn't to bad but be sure to bring water and wear a hat. The way back is harder. Not to be missed.

It was REALLY hot when we did this visit, but it was worth the view. It's about a 1.5 mile hike each way, mostly uphill on the way back! View is gorgeous.

It's not a real long hike, but it was 108 when we walked it and there is no shade, and there is a decent hill to climb. wear good walking shoes and the hike is dusty. Take a bottle of water per person and maybe even an umbrella on hot days. The view is amazing! Worth the hike. Be careful... More

very cool how this bend was created! Beautiful color to the water. The hike down was hot but the hike up was intense in the heat. Make sure to take lots of fluids to drink. Benches along the way to take a rest. No safety railings, everything was natural, so people need to make sure to safely view the site.

We've all seen the pictures but you need to see it in person. It's free and very easy to get to. It's about a mile and a half hike though on flat surface but with a lot of elevation. It takes about an hour or so. Bring water, camera and wear sneakers. It's a hill up and a long hill... More

Don't pass through Page without visiting this area. Peaceful and good photo op location. No shade on the trail to Horseshoe Bend. Take water, wear a hat, and sturdy, closed-toe shoes.

This is well worth the uphill walk to see! No toilets or facilities, so be prepared. Great photo opportunity!

This is next to the Grand Canyon one of the most beautiful overlooks I have ever seen. It is bit of a hike but well worth it. The trail is a hot hike in the summer and you should be prepared. Make sure to bring water and sunscreen. Mobility scooters need to be capable of off road travel if you... More

What a fantastic view! You'll have to walk around twenty minutes to get there, and you'll have to be patient to get a good pic due to inumerous people around the place. But the view worths it.
