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.

Wonderful view

I am sure you will be impressed by the magnificent landscape. However, it is a little dangerous. I am worried if you have children.One step ahead is a cliff.

Just as stunning as you expect. A bit of a walk from the car park but that not a bad thing. It was very busy with folks all clambering for the perfect picture. Selfie stick central. But it does not disappoint. Glad they haven't over commercialised it (thinking of Sedona).

Do not pass this place by. The hike to the overlook is short, but very sandy. Be cautious is you're afraid of heights, but hold someone's hand and approach slowly. You will not be disappointed by the view!

A great stop from town of Page on Route 89 to Grand Canyon. Free no admission charge. Took many pictures. Saw the great river from up above. Awesome experience.

Great view if you're not afraid of heights. There is a short steep climb from the parking lot then evens out after a gentle short walk down to the edge. There are no railings, so watch your children.

Unfortunately it was cloudy and cool when we were there, but I am sure it can get very hot when the sun is out, so wear appropriate clothing. Also be prepared for a lot of people.

Awesome view! But it is a bit of a hike up the hill, plus more down to the river! But worth the hike!!

We visited horseshoe bend in Page Arizona on November 26, 2016. It is just a few miles south of Page and took us less than 10 minutes to reach there by car from our hotel. The walk from the parking lot is less than a mile to the edge of the canyon. The parking lot became full by 9:30am and... More

Fascinating to see this geological curiosity and wonder why the river went around as it did. There is no railing around the edges, caution is advised, people with acrophobia might not enjoy this one. Free and easily accessible and therefore very popular.
