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.

We made it a point to stop here during the golden hour (1 hour after sunrise or 1 hour before sunset) to get the best lighting. A lot of others had the same idea, but there's more than enough room to get in and take...More

We heard a lot about Horseshoe Bend but none of it was accurate. It was beautiful a once in a life time view. The walk there was difficult. Up a large steep hill thru rocky pink sand, across the top and down a steep hill...More

Wowza. We spent a couple hours oohing and ahhing at the beautiful views. It is only ~.75 miles from the parking lot to the overlook, so it's a pretty easy hike. The views are gorgeous and I recommend you stop by if you're in the...More

A hot, sweaty climb in June but well worth the effort to see this beauty. Crowded but with a little patience you will get all the pictures you want. Our late morning pictures were the best because the sun was in the right spot so...More

I visited Horseshoe Bend in July so I knew it was going to be a hot and sweaty journey to see the view. From the parking lot, you walk up an incline that is sandy so you need to put a little effort in. I...More

Horseshoe Bend was an extra stop on our list while on a road trip. I’m definitely happy we went there. There is a small parking there. To get to the Horseshoe Bend itself you need to hike uphill, it’s not very difficult, but because we...More

We arrived early in the morning to avoid the heat and it was already hot. You avoid the tour buses earlier. It’s a bit of a hike up and then down to the edge. But wow is it worth it. They have a railing up...More

Well worth visiting. And going in the early morning before the tour buses. A bit frightening being so close to a massive drop. Not for the faint hearted to get close. But incredible views. Watch the time of day for lighting. And remember enjoy the...More

It’s not a very steep climb. If your parents are at a normal fitness level and don’t have mobility problems, they should be fine. It’s possible to view the bend from afar, but obviously will not give the same experience. I... More
