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.

Morning shots of this sight are preferred-I did both sunrise and sunset-the former were the best light this time of year. It is about a mile hike each way-from the parking lot it is initially up about 150ft. on a sand dune-then down hill to the bend--remember it is uphill all the way but the final 100 yards-dune to the lot. I cannot over state-be careful-it is a 1000 ft. drop from the Navaho sandstone edge to the river. Further it is often very windy at the site. Sandstone weakens and slippery after it is wet-especially in the monsoon season. There are fatalities here-just be smart and careful.
