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.

A hot walk on desert sand so bring water and cover but the views are simply stunning. Just watching idiots stand on loose rocks to get the best shot was worth it 😡 How many lose their lives over the edge I have no idea but my wife refused to get closer than 59 feet. Shame there is no restroom... More

Chances are you, you'll drive by it without knowing what it is. If you have the time and you pass by anything with cars parked stop and ask what's there. I've ridden by this and the slot canyons twice without ever knowing the cool things Page, AZ has to offer. I'm glad I made it back to actually visit. Be... More

After a walk of about 20 minutes we arrived at this amazing sight. We just stood there & admired the scene before us. A truly great stop.

Beautiful view of the Colorado River. I was there in September; it was hot but not humid. Be prepared to hike in and out from the parking area. Bring plenty of water, pace yourself.

I visited Horseshoe bend on a 30 th anniversary trip. It was spectacular to look at. The river that had worn away the stone made the most unusual scene and the colors were so beautiful! It was a bit of a hike in the hot sun to get there but well worth it. Bring a water bottle and a hat.

It's a bit of a hike from the carpark up a sand dune and down towards the horseshoe bend but well worth it. The scenery was breathtaking and lots of photo opportunities from different angles. Some people got really close for the perfect selfie which was scary to watch at times. The walk was good after the long drive from... More

There's a sign warning about extreme heat, and it also warns visitors to take water. Those warnings should not be ignored. The trail to the viewpoint is a tough one for people who are not in good physical condition. From the parking lot you must go up a hill that's about 100 feet high, and then hike downhill for about...

We went here around 5pm on a Saturday, hoping the crowds may have died down. No. There were so many people, pushing to get the perfect view or perfect shot, it's no wonder that some people fall to their deaths!

3/4 mile walk to an awesome viewpoint of the Colorado River. Warning: steep drop offs. Small children and pets should be closely watched. Take water. Wear shoes you don't mind getting full of sand.

You have a fair walk after parking you car but it's not to stressful,a word of warning when you arrive,be very careful there is no safety barriers and some of the people I saw getting very close to the edge to try and get a better picture were dicing with death
