Owner description: 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.

take the 1/4 mile walk out to the bends edge to have your breath taken away by the beauty and awe of the desert rusticness. This beautiful place is one of the things that makes the wild-and-wooley-west so priceless and special. Take time out to treat yourself to this view. When we were there it started to snow and there were thunder and lightning off in the distance (I'll post photos soon) and the wind was blowing my hair in my face. When I reached the cliff I was taken by my shock of how truly grand it is and how beautiful it is. The contrast between the terracotta rock and sand and the teal river blew me away. I will go back.

We came here in the afternoon and at sunrise and both were amazing views. Bring a wide angle lens and watch your step, there are no railings! Hike from the car is about half a mile so be prepared and once you get to the edge it will be well worth it!

It's just a bend in the river, but it is really cool. I went there right at sunset and had really great lighting for pictures.

Not to long of a walk from the parking lot and the view is worth it. Be aware though there are no barriers.

A short 3/4 mile hike is well worth the time. The views of horseshoe bend are breathtaking. If you have vertigo or small children stay back from the edge as there are no barriers and it is a long long way down.
