Overview

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.

We enjoyed our short trek to Horseshoe Bend. I suggest going early morning or early evening to beat the heat in the summer months.

Somewhat hidden location easily accessible from the highway. Free admission and Ample parking. Extremely hot walk down to the incredible Vista of the horseshoe Canyon. Very scary to get near the edge for a good view. Many people seemed unprepared for the incredible heat. It...More

Great attraction when in Page, Az. The parking space was not huge, and there were several tour buses there when we went. It is about a mile hike there and back from the parking lot. It was crowded when we got there and had to...More

The view is not to be missed but without a guardrail, it was a little terrifying. A few people lost hats and bottles of water while we were there. I did see a sign that it is in the works but wouldn't feel comfortable bringing...More

This is really a sight to see. We were told that they are going to start charging people to hike to the overlook, so if you are in the area, see it now. The hike would be a bit strenuous for those who have physical...More

Really cool landmark that you have to see if in the Page/Lake Powell area. But be prepared for huge crowds. Still was able to get some nice photos, but definitely not a place to find any kind of solitude. I would NOT recommend doing a...More

We were there the first week of May, and there was no barrier yet. it is super close to Page (maybe 5-8 minutes out of town?), so I'm sure you could Uber with no problem.

No fees for now. I heard that they will start to have entrance fee sometime next year. Btw, the parking lot is a little bit of a walk to the horseshoe bend.
