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.

Simply beautiful. Worth the long drive from Scottsdale. Just a breathtaking view point from the edge of the canyon walls. Easy to find, easy to walk down to, just a must-do if you are in Arizona, especially if you are traveling north/south to/from Page.

Horseshoe bend was beautiful, but I got pictures of the river in Marble Canyon and Glen Canyon while doing other hikes. To get this shot, realize it is very much a tourist point. It's free, but you March up and down hills with hundreds of other people, rain or shine, people are there.

Just watch your step. But we got awesome pictures and it is worth the short walk even if the weather is not perfect. And the park service recently improved the parking lot and added toilets. Thanks!

Horseshoe Bend is located right off of route-89. Lots of parking and bathrooms. There is a quick hike to the Bend walking uphill initially. Horseshoe Bend is an amazing site! You view it from a steep cliff and it is pretty scary. There are no guardrails. I saw some families with small children letting them get close to the edge... More

We took a last minute drive to Arizona on our last day of stay while we were in Vegas. It's a 4-hour drive from Vegas and you will get to both Arizona and Utah on the drive which is pretty cool. It was a pretty short and easy hike going up to the bend but there were a lot of... More

WOW! So breathtakingly beautiful but also so frightening. It is about a moderate 3/4 mile hike each way to get to Horseshoe Bend from the parking lot. When you get there, you will be overwhelmed by how busy it is as well as the lack of barriers/railings preventing people from falling. Still, the lack of these barriers did not prevent... More

The uphill walk was a little strenuous for some elderly people but they all made it to the horseshoe bend. It is a fantastic sight and there are lots of places to take pictures. Don't expect to get the famous picture of the entire horseshoe. There is no spot for an ordinary person to get that shot, You just can't... More

Horseshoe Bend is one of those attractions that is exactly what you see in the magazines. Its about 15minute drive down HWY 89 from Page. There is plenty of parking available and free. The track is about 1.5 miles down and believe me it is a lot longer than it looks. If you are going in summer wear enclosed shoes... More

Very short hike for the avid hiker - but don't forget to take water! Park at the ample parking lot - if it is full the trail will be crowded. Take your camera and take pictures. This is a hike for the view, not the workout.

After the 15 minute walk we were greeted by a Spectacular view, it is amazing how mother nature can crave out such a view.
