The trailhead to this 3/4 mile hike is located just outside of Page, Arizona.

The horseshoe bend is a must for travellers passing near lake powell, Antelope canyon and Page. In the late afternoon or sunset you will have the sun in front of you, so prepare with the necessary equipment for nice backlight pictures. Otherwise plan for a visit during the day or early morning. From the parking lot there is a short... More

This is a very hot hike with absolutely no shade. Take plenty of water and go in the early morning. Round trip is 1.5 miles and takes about 45 minutes. No entry fee. Very unique looking rock and river. If you've never been, stop by for a quick hike on your way to Lake Powell if you are heading north.... More

Found this while traveling to Page for the day. After a rather steep hike down to the attraction, the view was worth it. Georgeous horseshoe cut out, and a variety of colors were evident in the rocks and the Colorado River. The hike back up the hill to get to the parking lot was terrible...especially in the 100 degree heat... More

This is a short trail that only requires moderate effort due to the sand covered hill. Anyone can do it. Be careful as there are no guardrails, but if you don't have veritigo and aren't fain of heart, get as close as you can for a real visual treat and amazing pictures. I took my pictures from two different spots... More

Horseshoe Bend overlook is a must see. It is about a 1/2 mile hike over soft sand to the overlook. Once there the views are amazing. There are no railings and the drop is 1000 feet to the canyon floor so be careful near the edge.

Jaw dropping beautiful. Not to be missed if you are visiting Antelope canyon. It is crazy how it is literally around the corner from Antelope canyon. I almost missed it and I would have regretted it so much if I didn't see this site.

Very good BBQ and service at the BBQ place. The one with the big roasters, The meat was good. Smoke flavoring was done with mesquite wood and oak wood. The service was great. The corn served at 6:30pm was very sweet

When you park your car, before you hike up and down to get there, even if you have seen pictures of it, you can not imagine what's like until you see it. It looks like a normal canyon gap on a plane desert, but when you get closer you see the magnificent curve Colorado River makes just to fill us... More

Free famous attraction. It is a sandy, rocky, trail up a moderately steep hill to the attraction. There is a canopy at the top of the hill for shade and rest. It is difficult to see the entire "horseshoe" without climbing out close to the cliff edge. Not handicap or stroller accessible. Beautiful view, nice rock formations, great view of... More

This was the first time I've been to this park. Seen pictures of it all the time and I can tell you it was more amazing being there in person! This bend of the Colorado river is only about 3 miles south of Page, AZ along US 89. Remember that US 89 is closed several miles south of the Horseshoe... More
