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.

Photographers should not miss this spot. With a wide angle lens you will capture the complete bend. As an alternative: the tourists taking selfies are another photo/video subject :-)

This area is so very beautiful. There is good parking with a little walk for a good view of the entire area. Even without the walk, the area is still wonderful for any nature lover.

It was awesome, better than all the pictures that I have see. Prepare for a long walk. Mostly downhill to the horseshoe but the return is uphill. Bring water to drink. There are no barriers at the sight. You can go as close as you...More

Absolutely beautiful view. There is decent sized parking lot and no entrance fee. The walk from the parking lot is pretty decent so I recommend wearing good shoes,(no flip flops).

I was not prepared for the hike to the bend, so only made it halfway out. Wear good shoes, bring lotsa water in summer, it was hot!

The pictures are lovely, and while they do not deceive, there are so many people it's hard to actually get to enjoy the spectacular nature. I would not make a special visit, although it may be worth it if you are already in the area.

Probably one of the best spot of the entire Grand Canyon, the Horseshoe Bend fills up quickly at sunset, so you should come earlier to get a nice shot. Parking is free and from the car park is about 10 minutes walk. Just watch out...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.
