Owner description: 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.

Wear Sunscreen in Summer - Zero Shade, easy 1 mile hike on a dirt track but the view is worth the hike. It is currently free so enjoy that perk, Navajo tribe is planning to charge pretty soon.

Lot of people will go to crazy extent and take risks to get that perfect shot. One time deal :(

While this landmark was interesting, the crowds and the heat made us wonder why we took the long walk to see it.

The dusty 3/4 mile hike is worth it. The view is outstanding. There are no guard rails on the viewing area. The wind can come up at any second. Our guide on the Upper Antelope Canyon tour mentioned in the very near future, the Native Americans plan to start charging to park at Horseshoe Bend.

Absolutely beautiful, but be careful! In order to get the "perfect" picture you have to get awfully close to the edge. They are in the process of building a safety rail which is needed. I saw a lot of people take some real risks in order to get the perfect picture for their Instagram. Be aware that though it's not far from the highway, a lot of the walk is uphill and the trail is sand. Wear proper shoes and bring water! In spite of the place being crowded, the view is well worth the effort. I also recommend you book a float trip from the Glen Canyon Dam and see Horseshoe Bend down at river level. Beautiful both ways!

Bring water, a hat, and comfy walking shoes!!! Crowds come and go! There is no shade. It’s literally a stop off the road to get one of the best photos you can get. You can try packing a little lunch and hanging out on a rock but I wouldn’t suggest it. Worth the stop and it’s priced well (FREE!!!)
