Wow, this is by far the most spectacular view you've ever seen. I've been to the grand canyon and it is beautiful but Horseshoe bend is really one of the world wonders. First off it is free, no entrance fence or tour needed. You will book a hotel in the town of "Page" and can make a day trip to both Horseshoe bend and Glen Canyon Dam which is only 4 miles away. This incredible natural vista of the mountain and The Colorado River is accessible to people of all hiking skills and it is a short walk from the parking lot to the top of this breathtaking cliff.
