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.

for a relatively short hike, this offered tremendous views. Make sure to take some water and a hat to protect from the sun.

Horseshoe Bend is an amazing place to see & take pictures of but the walk to it will challenge you a bit! The parking lot is located right off Hwy. 89 south of Page where you begin your hike. Most of the way to the...More

This is a must-do stop on your way in or out of Page. Fair warning if you are looking for ideal picture times, make sure you check the travel forum. We went right after lunch (June, 2017) and the pictures were pretty, but not stunning....More

My family of 5 (14,12,12) visited her after Antelope Canyon. It's a short 10 minute walk up and down a slightly steep hill. Once you get to the edge (literally the edge) of the canyon, you will be rewarded with a unique photo spot. Enjoy...More

the hike and the heat are all compensated for with the breathtaking view of the horseshoe bend. though i am not that adventurous, being afraid of height, the glimpse of the view down below is enough.

On has to walk a mile to reach the spot and in the heat it can become an ordeal. Do visit in morning time.

The view is amazing from horseshoe bend! It's worth noting that horseshoe bend is near Page, and Page gets HOT!!! It was 102 when we visited and it felt every bit of that temp. Just be smart when you visit; TAKE WATER, wear sunscreen/good shoes...More

The heat was miserable until we were on the raft. The water is 48 degrees. This Chicagoan jumped into the river.

When is the best time to go? I'll be there June 8th - a Thursday, I'm coming from the Grand Canyon and hoping to be in Page by around 3PM. Is that a good time for it? Earlier? Later? Thanks in advance!

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 am planning to do horseshoe bend trail and lower antelope canyon tour right after. Trying to avoid hot sun, I am looking at 07:00 - 08:00 for horseshoe bend trail and 08:30-09:30, which I am planning to book for with Dixie's. We are having 7 & 9 years old kids with us. Do you think we have to start earlier for horseshoe bend hiking to make it for lower antelope? Looks like lower antelope starting point is only about 10 minutes away from horseshoe bend.

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
Travelling on a tour bus. Staying at hotel in Page. No car. What is the best way to get to Horseshoe Bend and then join an Antelope tour? Uber? Looks like most tours for Antelope pick up at hotels, or go directly to their offices. Are there any shuttle buses around Page for tourists?

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.
