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.

Off highway 89 about 3 miles outside of Page AZ. Parking is free and no tickets to buy. The small hike is about a mile on a sandy path. Wear closed shoes to prevent small rocks entering your sandals. Not wheelchair accessible, about 20-30 minute...More

Wasn't really sure what to expect, but really pleased we stopped by. We could have spent a long time taking it all in.

After a steep walk, you'll see the beautiful horseshoe bend. Don't forget to take a bottle of water!

The view of Horseshoe Bend is just beautiful. If you are visiting in the summer months, make sure you hike early in the morning of before sunset. The canyon is beautiful no matter the time. Bring plenty of water with you and hiking shoes for...More

Short hike from ample carpark just off main road. Much quieter at beginning and end of day but shadows on canyon wall can impact. Best at either midday when no shadows or dusk.

a magnificent place. Requires 3/4 mile hike up a large sandy hill then down to the rim. Watch children and animals as there is no ledge and a 1000' drop. There are signs warning that the rock ledges my appear strong but can give way....More

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

I'm sorry, we had a car and had no information about moving around. Call Jackie at Canyon X tours (friend of Coco) at 928-660-8961. They are new and very helpful; may be able to help.
