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.

To my opinion - the best part of the Grand canyon. If you've been here and you are short in time you can skip Grand Canyon . You can do it in 1 hour

This is one of my favorite places as it gives such an amazing view of the Colorado river and the deep canyons. It will be crowded. Just remember that. You can still get a photo that will look like you are alone though. Best to...More

A short hike but be prepared for hoardes of tourists including buses even on the hottest days. Nice views but scary to see some practically dangling off the cliff to get their shot. Keep going unless you want a quick jaunt that is cloying.

It is hard to understand by pictures how amazing this section of river is. Breathtakingly beautiful. Loved it.

A lovely walk with some uphill and downhill out to a dazzling view over the Horsehoe Bend. It's a little unnerving to see people right on the edge of a hundreds-of-feet drop, but it's a relatively short if hot walk from the parking area just...More

This place is about 0,5 mile hike down to the lookout. It is well worth the walk. The canyon for the river is really deep and the view is spectacular If you are afraid of heights, do not get to close to the edge.

My husband and I visited Horseshoe Bend very early in the morning on a very hot day. It was not crowded and the hike (up and down the hill) was ok due to the cooler temps. Pictures would have been better later in the day

Horsehoe bend looks just like the photos but impossible to take a photo with a camera and capture the entire bend in an image. It is so crowded at sunset. Well worth a visit and is a short walk from the road side parking

This is an impressive natural site with a horseshoe shape. It's really deep and wide, best visit is for sunset.

3pm is fine. It will be warm and there is a bit of an uphill hike to get to the viewing area. Bring water and wear a hat. Also... THERE IS NO RAILING ON THE EDGE! If you have little explorers keep a close eye on them.

I would allow 2 hours for the Horseshoe Bend. It is 10 minutes walking to the Bend from the parking lot. You also need to walk around the upper rims of the Bend and take pictures. One hour is too rushed to do all this... More

I'm sorry, we had a car and had no information about moving around. Call Jackie at Canyon X tours (friend of Coco) at 928-660-8961. They are new and very helpful; may be able to help.
