This place is not to be missed. It is a bit of a trek to get there from the parking lot, but it is absolutely jaw dropping beauty. Lots of people that are brave to venture to the edge to take pictures, but I am...More

If you’re going to take pictures (which most people do), then first thing in the morning probably isn’t the best as there will be a lot of shadowing (you’ll have to play around with the exposure on your phone). However, be prepared for larger crowds...More

One of the must visit locations while in Page, it’s also free. There is a parking area just off the main road and it takes about 10-15mins over pretty flat terrain to reach the cliff edge. I must say it looks bigger than I expected...More

A not to miss site while staying or driving through Page, AZ. Right off the highway, a short walk back to the cliffs edge to take in this beautiful site that has been created over time in the beautiful stone surrounding this area.

Amazing how the Colorado river found its way around the rock. Amazing to look at, great place to visit. You won't waste your time.

We went early morning and luckily there was hardly anyone there. We did have a shadow but thats ok rather that than crowds. Def worth the walk down which is fairly easy and there are restrooms in parking lot.

It takes a short while to get to the look out, but worth the walk. The views are wonderful, just can't understand why so many people get so close to the edge.
