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.

Beautiful. Getting to it is downhill, coming back is uphill and not many places to sit and take a break or just take in the view. Very crowded, if you drive there try to get there early as possible. You only get 45 min if...More

We had a lot of fun. 3/4 mile hike up sand and stones. The edge is not railed so it's advised to stay clear. We climbed up the peak at the end of the trail and loved the views.

You better be able to walk a long way and uphill. Bring good shoes... sand will fill up shoes. If you are afraid of heights, have anxiety your kids will fall off cliff or need a bathroom this place is not for you. It is...More

If you are in Page, it is definitely worth a visit. It's not a long walk but a moderate level due to it's inclination. The only downside is don't expect to view the Horseshoe Bend the way they show in pictures. That's probably a helicopter...More

Definitely interesting view but given the amount of time and moderate difficulty to get there and back, this would be a stop if there is sufficient time. Would prioritize going to not just one of two, but both upper and lower Antelope Canyon, the dam,...More

Yes, the walk from the parking lot to the first viewpoint (from which you can see the iconic view) is a slog up and down hill both ways through a lot of deep sand, so it's not an easy stroll. But it's worth it for...More

We visited here as part of a tour. It was only a quick stop but long enough to appreciate the beauty of the place. It's a bit of a walk from the carpark, but nothing too strenuous. When we visited it looked like they were...More

Went to Horseshoe Bend. Traveled in November which was not hot like in the summer. The area is under construction due to possibly making it a tourist area and stop. The walk to the South bend is up then back down and reverse when you...More

Only a 10 minute drive from Antelope Canyon. The trail to the viewing area is easy and very manageable, about 20 mins.

About 3/4 mile walk to great views of the river canyon. Take camera, water and wear goid shoes. Terrain changes a bit, gravel sand and stone.

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
