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...more

We visited before checking in to our hotel in Page.
I don’t know why, but I didn’t expect it to be busy at all. Anyway it was. I wrongly assumed that like a lot of attractions in the US, you can drive up, get out...More
After a walk over sandy slopes (some rather steep), you are treated to great views of the hairpin bend in the river, flanked with steep sides. View changes with the light / time of day. Cool to view through binoculars, too.
You can walk along...More
It's a wonderful location that doesn't require much of a hike and has a breathtaking view. A must visit location! But beware of the looting cops! The parking spaces are limited and the safety personnel don't allow you inside but just tell you to go...More
I've been here twice now and I am so glad a guard rail is being installed on the rim overlooking Horseshoe Bend. It's a short up and then down 3/4 mile walk through sand (so it seems longer, bring water) to get to the rim,...More

I agree with the others that no fee that I know of, and as a professional photographer, I always scout out the best light times in advance. I would figure out what to wear, what lighting preferences: sunrise or sunset, and just the overall feel you want for your photos, then allow enough time to shoot above Horseshoe Bend, then walk over to the right side and shoot some more!

Depending on the time of year, this may be too late. When we went there was no charge but I heard this is changing. You need light to see down into the canyon, worth the stop. Antelope Canyon is a must. You need reservations... More
