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.

You need to walk 15 minutes (uphill) from the parking lot to get there. This place was crowded with people and it was not easy to find a spot with no people to take pictures. The view is so amazing and I would definitely come back.

If you are in the area, you must visit. Horseshoe bend offers breathtaking views. A photographer's dream, although no photo truly captures the beauty of this place. We visited early AM and it was fairly quiet. There was plenty of parking available (free). The trail is only a short but it is mostly sandy with a slight incline/decline in part... More

We had a really hot day and found it a little difficult to walk from the car park to the bend, but it did worth every breath we took on the way. What a marvellous view!!!!

Horseshoe Bend is one of the most gorgeous places I have ever been to. It is fairly easy to find on a map. Once you arrive you can park your car in the lot and walk about a quarter mile down an easy trail to view it. It is so worth going and taking a photo.

A nature's beauty. We thoroughly enjoyed the breathtaking views during sunset. It is an ideal outing and to capture magnificient views one should visit around sunrise or sunset. A brisk hike from the highway would take you there. A ideal 4 hour item in your Arizona tour itinerary.

This is a magical place that gets many, many visitors. I normally avoid the highly popular sights, but, much like Grand Canyon NP, this could be on the bucket list...and you certainly can't miss it if you are in northern AZ. The energy was great and, apparently, there is no entrance fee. We payed quite a bit of $$ to... More

Near Page, on the border of Utah and Arizona, the Horseshoe Bend is a scenic place. The overview of the Colorado River is spectacular. An ideal place for photographs.

Pictures do not do the beauty and natural wonder of the horseshoe bend justice. Our family visited 10:30 am on a Sunday January morning. There were plenty of visitors. Horseshoe bend has it's own parking lot. The trail to horseshoe bend is a 15 - 25 min. walk with a bit of a decline/incline. At the bend, there are no... More

I first saw this bend in 1947...have returned and passed by 50 plus times over the years and each time the river, clouds and light are gifts to the eyes.
