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...more
All reviews parking lot short hike bring water colorado river the cliff view is amazing wide angle lens parking area viewing area half mile easy hike soft sand afraid of heights take your time grand canyon bottle of water take pictures
We hiked the 2 miles to the rim relatively easy. Hesrt rate was up to strenuous exercise mode but was not out of breath. The hike down was harder on my artificial knees, and the hike back up is in some soft sand. Don't let...More
worth the parking fee, worth the walk in hot, hot sun!
amazing view, beautiful scenery, watching folks in the boats/rafts below, it was a busy spot. If you were sacred of heights, there was fences & you can stand back & still great views.
Short Trail to just a "world class view".--
Pros: A must do---SPECTACULAR VIEW
Not too far, just a nice walk
Hundreds of people----most speaking foreign languages--all over the world
Cons: HOT...I suggest an umbrella for the sun
Sand....hiking shoes nice, but not required
This was a must see on our page trip. While the bend is beautiful be prepared for about a 1.5 mile steep hike with some slippery surfaces. You’ll also need to pay to get into the parking area so bring cash!
There is a $10 parking fee and there isn’t a visitor center (signs indicate one is in the works). This was a great view even with all the folks taking selfies and trying to get Instagram shots. There were a large number of tour groups...More
I’ve had this place on my bucket list for quite some time. I was told it was a Bryce Canyon. It is not! It is near Page, AZ. This was the highlight of our trip through Utah and Arizona. Great parking lot. The sandy trail...More
We went to Horseshoe Bend after Antelope Canyon. The woman taking the parking money told us it was a 3 minute walk there and 5 minute walk back. Not the case but well worth it. You have to go up a incline in sand and...More
Well worth the hike in & out about 1.5 miles! In my opinion its not an Easy hike but
Moderate, coming out is mostly up hill no shade. ( except one place) Lots & Lots of people, take water & early morning or late afternoon...More
A definite must if you are visiting the area. Went Wednesday mid-morning and had no issues with parking (there is a fee to enter the parking area).
Walking to the overlook does involve some uphill and sandy trail - but is manageable and well worth...More
Yes, nice benches. It's steep, but take your time and make sure you have water. It's worth the walk. Don't do it if the temp is above 90, though. The trail to Horseshoe Bend is 1.5 miles round trip. Plan on at least an... More
Yes, nice benches. It's steep, but take your time and make sure you have water. It's worth the walk. Don't do it if the temp is above 90, though. The trail to Horseshoe Bend is 1.5 miles round trip. Plan on at least an hour. That should give you enough time to get to the edge, see the bend, and come back.
