worth the parking fee, worth the walk in hot, hot sun! amazing view, beautiful scenery, watching folks in the boats/rafts below, it was a busy spot. If you were sacred of heights, there was fences & you can stand back & still great views.

This was a must see on our page trip. While the bend is beautiful be prepared for about a 1.5 mile steep hike with some slippery surfaces. You’ll also need to pay to get into the parking area so bring cash!

There is a $10 parking fee and there isn’t a visitor center (signs indicate one is in the works). This was a great view even with all the folks taking selfies and trying to get Instagram shots. There were a large number of tour groups...More

We went to Horseshoe Bend after Antelope Canyon. The woman taking the parking money told us it was a 3 minute walk there and 5 minute walk back. Not the case but well worth it. You have to go up a incline in sand and...More

A definite must if you are visiting the area. Went Wednesday mid-morning and had no issues with parking (there is a fee to enter the parking area). Walking to the overlook does involve some uphill and sandy trail - but is manageable and well worth...More

Sorry I can’t help but it’s I think you could find almost any conditions from cool to rain to snow. Have to ask a local or just look at weather patterns for Page in March.
