Horseshoe Bend
Experience it yourself

Horseshoe Bend

Horseshoe Bend is the intimate Grand Canyon experience (although technically located in Glen Canyon.) 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. The trail-head to this 3/4 mile hike is located just outside of Page, Arizona. If you are in the area you owe it to yourself to stop and take a look.

Wow, this is by far the most spectacular view you’ve ever seen. I’ve been to the grand canyon and it is beautiful but Horseshoe bend is really one of the world wonders.

This is a quick experience. Just park your car in the lot, hike over a hill and head to the sight. It’s beautiful. But… be careful! There is no fence, ledge or guard at the edge.
