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.

Horseshoe Bend reviews
Breath taking views of the bend in the Colorado river. Would recommend stopping to see this. Only $10 per car and a very easy walk to get to it.

A fairly easy hike to this incredible view area. So beautiful in every direction. Nice large parking area, so we had no problems finding a spot mid-day.

$10 entry fee per vehicular. Worth it. It’s about 1/2 mile walk from the parking lot to the scenic view area. It’s so darn beautiful. I went at sunrise and I was the first one there and the only one for about a minute. I loved it. Great to explore and classic south west view.
Horseshoe Bend is truly a breathtaking sight. The sense of scale as you look out over the bend in the Colorado River is truly awe-inspiring. The vastness of the landscape and the deep blue of the water make it a truly special place to visit. One downside to visiting Horseshoe Bend is the heavy crowds. It can be difficult to find a good spot for taking pictures, as everyone is trying to get the perfect shot. Despite the crowds, it is still worth visiting, as the views are truly spectacular. My wife also loved Horseshoe Bend. She was equally as impressed by the scale of the landscape and the beauty of the water. We both found it to be a truly memorable experience and would definitely recommend it to others looking for a unique and special place to visit. Overall, Horseshoe Bend is a must-see destination for anyone visiting the area. The views are truly stunning, and the sense of scale is truly awe-inspiring. While the crowds can be a bit of a downside, it is still worth visiting to take in the beauty of this unique and special place.
