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.

So it's a 5min drive out of town , then a 600mt walk to the bend. The walk isn't flat at all , it's up hill then down , but easy enough for anyone. The view at the bend is a mind blower. Simply a must do if in this part of the world. And it's free!

Make sure to bring a wide-angle lens to be able to capture this and stay away from the ledge! :) Good Luck!

This is one of the most beatiful places in the world and one you need to visit. The walk can be tough (for certain people) but is only a half mile and the view is unbelievable! A must...

From the parking lot it is about a 20 minute hike up a steep hill and down the other side to the edge of horseshoe bend. There are signs that say don't go right to the edge, but of course everyone is right at the edge to get the best picture and there are no guard rails. Mid day is... More

A 10 mins drive from the nearby motels, this place is a treat to the eyes.Drive in before sunrise and secure yourself aa perfect spot to catch the changing colors with sun rays. Carry a selfie stick to have better clicks if you are not carrying professional camera equipment.

Defiantly take a drive and a short hike to Horseshoe Bend. The colors are fantastic and the scene is surreal.

Went here before going to Lower Antelope Canyon as we had some time to spare. There was about 15 minutes hike and we saw some older ladies on our back, so I think it's a pretty decent hike for older people? Anyway, this is one of the best places I've been too! Too bad our camera wasn't wide enough to... More

Every hour of every day offers new photography opportunities! If visiting in the summer months, bring plenty of water. Worth the effort.
