Horseshoe Bend, Page

4.8
Horseshoe Bend is a natural wonder famous for its striking contrast of water against red rocks. Just as its name suggests, the bend is a horseshoe-shaped curve cut into the rocks by the Colorado River, located just 6 km (4 mi) southwest from the town of Page. You can take a raft or helicopter tour or hike to the bend over a fairly short but very steep and rugged trail, often made more difficult by excessive heat. If you do choose to walk across this challenging terrain, be sure to wear rubber-soled shoes, light clothing, sunglasses, and a hat. To avoid dehydration, drink lots of water and make frequent stops as you hike to the scenic overlook above the meandering river. Put Horseshoe Bend at the forefront of your travel plans using our Page trip planner.

  • The view was breathtaking! Even though this was the only thing you could see there, you won't regret paying the visit!  more »
  • We had the bonus of few people on the day we went in. It is approx 10 minutes on an easy path to the view point. The horse shoe is amazing, and walking on the sheets of sandstone stacked like plates.....  more »

  • Superb location. Very interesting landscape. The Colorado river turns and forms a surprising bend carving the mountains around. This lookout place is at a great height and we get a magnificent view of the valley bend and the Colorado river all the way down with a very steep slope everywhere. Keep caution while watching the nature's beauty and while taking pictures. Beautiful location !!
  • Good area to spend a couple of hours with the family. If with small kids be careful because the cliffs are very steep with no protection. It’s a short 0.9 mile one way but well worth it. The views are nothing short of spectacular so to say from any angle. What was also amazing is how people were trying to best each other in taking at the edge pictures! No idea why take that risk. Definitely a must visit in the Page area.
