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.

This place is great and is only a short 10 min drive from the main area of Page. This view is iconic so expect to share it with many many people. The hike is a short half mile round trip with minimum elevation gain. The only tough part of the hike is that it's completely exposed to the sun, so... More

Just came back from Page Arizona. Thought I would give you my review of Horshoe Bend. It is literally about five minutes outside of Page. I went in February so there weren't big crowds in the early morning. The view is breathtaking as many have said. This is an easy hike and everyone… Everyone should do it. Plus, it's free.... More

We visited on a cold day in February and still managed to be very hot by the time we walked back to the car. Bring water and wear sunscreen. It is beautiful, but sort of scary how easily you can fall over. All the young people goofing around nearly gave me a heart attack (and I am only 36). The... More

Simply beautiful. Worth the long drive from Scottsdale. Just a breathtaking view point from the edge of the canyon walls. Easy to find, easy to walk down to, just a must-do if you are in Arizona, especially if you are traveling north/south to/from Page.

Horseshoe bend was beautiful, but I got pictures of the river in Marble Canyon and Glen Canyon while doing other hikes. To get this shot, realize it is very much a tourist point. It's free, but you March up and down hills with hundreds of other people, rain or shine, people are there.

Just watch your step. But we got awesome pictures and it is worth the short walk even if the weather is not perfect. And the park service recently improved the parking lot and added toilets. Thanks!

Horseshoe Bend is located right off of route-89. Lots of parking and bathrooms. There is a quick hike to the Bend walking uphill initially. Horseshoe Bend is an amazing site! You view it from a steep cliff and it is pretty scary. There are no guardrails. I saw some families with small children letting them get close to the edge... More

We took a last minute drive to Arizona on our last day of stay while we were in Vegas. It's a 4-hour drive from Vegas and you will get to both Arizona and Utah on the drive which is pretty cool. It was a pretty short and easy hike going up to the bend but there were a lot of... More

WOW! So breathtakingly beautiful but also so frightening. It is about a moderate 3/4 mile hike each way to get to Horseshoe Bend from the parking lot. When you get there, you will be overwhelmed by how busy it is as well as the lack of barriers/railings preventing people from falling. Still, the lack of these barriers did not prevent... More
