Overview

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.

I visited early morning to miss the crowds. Was rather windy but still wonderful to see. There is plenty space to view the bend down down below. Defiantly worth a visit and only 10 minute drive from Page.

Do not bring kinds unsupervised there until they finished the fence. There are hundreds of way to fall.

Great little stop! Go there while it is still free. They are currently building a gated area, that I am sure will be a future “paid experience“. Just about a mile walk from the parking, you can see some spectacular views of horseshoe Bend. Easy...More

Please be prepared to do some walking in order to enjoy the view. You will walk up a rather steep hill then down a long path in order to get to Horseshoe Bend. Then reverse that same walk. If you're not in decent shape, you...More

Amazing view if you dare go near the edge. Take care though as last year someone fell off when the ledge he was standing on broke off.

We stopped by Horseshoe Bend on our way from Zion to the Grand Canyon. We were so happy that we did. The pictures don't do it justice. The views are great - we couldn't stop taking pictures. I would highly recommend that you stop here.

Go early before the crowds arrives. Not sure when would be the best light, but morning light means when you take photos you will have your shadow in front of you. Currently the NPS are doing some work to build better facilities for viewing. Be...More

We walked about a mile to get to Horseshoe Bend. There is a large parking lot there with outdoor toilets provided. When we went, there was no charge for parking. Construction was going on so there may be a parking fee in the future. We...More

It is not recommended to go there in the dark, there are no railings to view the bend and it could be slippery with the sand on the rocks. Extreme care must be taken when going close to the cliff.

No guard rails installed. But, constructions are underway and it looks like there are plans to build some kind of viewing deck! Enjoy it now before it happens next year - word on the street also NPS will start charging a fee... More
