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.

Beautiful sunset spot!

Bring a wide angle lens or take a pano on your phone so that you can get the full horseshoe in your photo.

I could've stayed and marveled all day. Next trip I will be down in the river on one of the boats I saw. Pet friendly, keep em' leashed, don't ruin it for the rest of us! Absolutely stunning view, very surreal. Short hike or walk rather.....its not a hike its a walk. 💚

Man did we cut this close to get here before sunset. Didn't time it well and totally didn't read that you have to walk (or in our case sprint) probably a mile or so. Tons of people, I should have posted a picture of that--hundreds, literally. A lot of people had staked out the best unobstructed picture spots but we... More

Visited Horseshoe Bend around sunset one evening in September. Incredibly beautiful view -- although if you have any fear of heights, it will probably make you nervous that there's no fence or barrier at all! After reading some reviews online and seeing signs at Horseshoe Bend itself warning that the hike was tough and the heat could be brutal, I... More

You need to walk 15 minutes (uphill) from the parking lot to get there. This place was crowded with people and it was not easy to find a spot with no people to take pictures. The view is so amazing and I would definitely come back.

If you are in the area, you must visit. Horseshoe bend offers breathtaking views. A photographer's dream, although no photo truly captures the beauty of this place. We visited early AM and it was fairly quiet. There was plenty of parking available (free). The trail is only a short but it is mostly sandy with a slight incline/decline in part... More

We had a really hot day and found it a little difficult to walk from the car park to the bend, but it did worth every breath we took on the way. What a marvellous view!!!!

Horseshoe Bend is one of the most gorgeous places I have ever been to. It is fairly easy to find on a map. Once you arrive you can park your car in the lot and walk about a quarter mile down an easy trail to view it. It is so worth going and taking a photo.

A nature's beauty. We thoroughly enjoyed the breathtaking views during sunset. It is an ideal outing and to capture magnificient views one should visit around sunrise or sunset. A brisk hike from the highway would take you there. A ideal 4 hour item in your Arizona tour itinerary.
