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.

Just.go.there!!!! Impossibile to miss, thanks to a huge P painted on the stone just out of Page. Nice, not to steep 1.5 mile walk on a well marked trail , the view is to die for, even if the weather is not picture perfect trust me and go, you won't regret it! Just keep in mind there's no safety barrier... More

This has to be one of the highlights of my east to west coast drive. On our way from Rocky mountains to the Grand Canyon, we decided to add this to our list as we had a route stop at Page. Its fairly untouched. A half mile walk on inclines can be tiring and usually hot (so carry sunscreen, water,... More

The parking lot was crowded and many people were making the trek a quarter mile uphill through the sandy soil when we visited. The views are amazing at the end of the trail. It is difficult to get a picture like you see of this spot unless you are quite willing to get on the edge of the cliff and... More

I know I say this all the time, but the fantastic beauty you'll find in Arizona is... well, unlike any other. There is so much to see and so much to take in it like candy for your senses.

This was another stop in our tour of the Grand Canyon West and Antelope Canyon. This is worth the stop. It is absolutely breath taking. Its a short walk from the parking lot off the highway. Trust me it is not a vigorous hike just take your time. As soon as you get to the horseshoe you will know it... More

Take care as there are no railings and it is a little hairy up there - but a great view of an iconic piece of geography.

It's a short hike to beautiful viewing spot of Horseshoe Bend. There is ample parking spaces. Just be careful and don't get too close as there are no guardrails and the rocks are thin and could break away.
