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. « less

A splendid place with photo opportunity galore. A must see when in Page. Take your time uphill and bring plenty of water

The word is obviously out there on the web that is a unique place as it was packed with people; many were from China, Korea, Japan etc. But when it is 40 C plus and there is no safety fence at the cliff edge; this place is just asking for a fatality. Apparently no local, state or national authority has... More

What a walk there and back yikes it was long and in sand and hot.head out an hour before sunset. No guard rails make it crazy scary and then a little girl ran up to the edge. If she had bumped me over I would have gone. I had to leave after that.

Highly recommend Colorado River Discovery for a lovely float trip down the Colorado and around Horseshoe Bend --you won't be disappointed!

This is truly a breathtaking experience. If you think the site looks impressive in photos you will be pleasantly surprised when you see it with your own eyes. There is a short hike in and out that makes you appreciate the experience a bit more. With no railings anywhere near the edge use your discretion.

A must see! Would highly recommend making the half mile trek down to the edge of the cliffs to peer down. Beautiful!

Hiked this about 10:30 in the morning. It was hot and no shade. I knew this and was prepared with water, sunscreen, and hat. This was still not as easy as some people make it sound. I am in reasonably good shape, but the incline coming back and the deep sand made the hike more difficult. Still it is a... More

Horseshoe bend is accessible by a 20 or so minute hike, easy enough, but the deep sand made it more difficult. I've been trying to find time to come here for years, I'm glad I finally made it. I rushed to make it for sunset, thought the photos would be insane.... the views were great, but the suns position made... More
