Located just outside Page, AZ - this is a wonder to see. The car park is under construction and you needed to take a shuttle bus to the destination for $5 - WORTH IT. It is about 3/4 a mile walk to the bend, but...More

Parking lot is being redone, so there is off-site parking and a shuttle. They charge$5 per person. Once there the hike to the rim is well worth it. Absolutely amazing. Be sure to hike up the hills for some great views and photos.

The pictures you have seen of horseshoe bend are amazing, seeing it in person helps to capture the size and beauty all at once. It is a good hike to and from, so plan accordingly. Currently they are expanding the parking lot, so if you...More

Scenic and great landforms. Make sure you can walk 1.5 miles. The bus shuttle service was not very efficient although I hear they are building a visitor center.

I know you need a Native American to enter into Horseshoe Bend. You should contact one of the tour groups like Ken's Tours and see if there is something smaller they could do for you. Good luck.

There’s a fence at the edge of the overlook but it only covers a small area straight across- nothing stopping people from climbing the surrounding rocks and going to their edges
