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.

Stunning Vistas!

We went at sunset - beautiful! About a 1 mi hike (round trip) to the edge. Well worth the journey! Sunrise may provide less shadows in the canyon though.

I remember seeing photos and a write-up years ago, probably in National Geographic. Well, it's more spectacular in person and though it was chilly and quite windy, it was worth the small hike and enduring the blowing wind to see it! I am quite fearful of heights and the view helped me overcome the worst part to take some spectacular... More

This was one on the main reasons we came to Page. The view is magnificent but don't go if you're afraid of heights or out of shape. The trail down to the rim is fairly steep and if you go down you have to walk back up. Theres bathrooms located at the parking lot so go before you hike down... More

I don't know where to begin. This place is one of the most amazing, awe-inspiring places I have ever been. THIS IS A MUST-SEE DESTINATION!!! AND IT'S FREE!!! At least in February 2017, it was! If you have some physical limitations, just know that it's about a mile round trip hike on ground that is NOT level.

I'd heard of Horseshoe Bend, but hadn't looked to see where it was exactly, but by chance found it as I was driving to Utah. I wasn't ready for the sheer beauty of it! I arrived early morning, along with a handful of other people there too, and could easily have spent all day here. I visited America as part... More

Friends had done it a few hours before and told us to go. Just a caution if you are with small kids. There are no barricades. Just sheer drops from a great height. Amazing splendor in the middle of semi-desert. 100% worthwhile seeing.

The hike up is a little bit of not in shape. Starts with walk straight up then descends down . We're there off season was very nice but crowded

If you happen to visit Antelope Canyon, then its just a few minutes drive from there. Needs a little walking from the parking lot but the whole view is indeed mindblowing

Great spot for a little coffee break, but it kind of freaked me out (and almost put me off going to the Grand Canyon) because so many people were perched on the very edge of the rocks - even though there are signs showing how the stone erodes and how dangerous it is. Made me feel like i had vertigo... More

Well worth visiting. Probably best view at midday. Easy walk along a sandy track. Be careful as there are no guard rails.
