Owner description: 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.

“It's quite a hike.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

It is a beautiful canyon carved by the Colorado River. The hike is quite a ways especially given the red sand. We will go back when our kids are older and can make the journey a bit easier.

“Famous Horseshoe Bend very photogenic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Loved the reward after only a very short hike. Lots of photo ops of a very photogenic sight. Also quite exciting when you're on the edge. I wouldn't take small children - very hard to keep them away from the edge and there were several times when my heart popped into my mouth when a couple of kids decided to bolt from their parents. To see photos of the trail and the destination, visit my blog at:

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Bring water, wear good shoes (flip flops and high heels don't work in the sand) It's better in the morning or afternoon because of the heat. Take your time enjoying the wiew on top, but watch your step :)

“Horseshoe Bend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Wonderful experience, breathtaking view, best to go early morning or just before sunset in the summer, otherwise it's very HOT. Wear good shoes, flip flops don't cut it walking through the sand. Pictures turn out fabulous. Watch children around the edge. As on any hike take water. There are no facilities so make sure you take what you need, snacks, water, etc.

“Beautiful and memorable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

A short walk up to Horseshoe Bend was well worth it. Easy to find a couple miles south of Page, Arizona. Walk to the viewing point takes a maximum of 10 minutes. An opportunity to take great photos!
