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

Very cool spot and definitely worth it to check out. The walk from the parking lot to the overlook was steeper and longer than I thought, but most anyone can do it and just may need to take it slow. Very beautiful but be careful...More

Beautiful scenery. A bit of a walk to see the bend, but well worth it. Watch your children as some of the viewing points have no railing. A recent fatality of a teenager occurred from a fall!

We started at Lee's Ferry and arranged a back-haul up the river, from which we kayaked back down the river. It was an experience of a lifetime. No whitewater.... just the most breathtaking view and pleasant kayak trip of a lifetime.

Horseshoe Bend, is a part of the Colorado River that has been carved out of stone over millions of years - just as the Grand Canyon has been carved out of stone. It is stunning and unusual, but also a hike over sand to get...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
