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.

  • Located just outside of the city of Page, it is worth the short walk from the car parking area. The car park is run / organised by the city itself, so it does cost you to park. $10.00 currently. It is...  more »
  • After a long walk, in the red dust, in the middle of a clearing burned by the wind, you will find yourself in front of this spectacle of nature created by Colorado. The greenish water of the river, during its sinuous path, at that point slowly wraps around a monolithic outcrop of the rock, almost to squeeze it. Don't expect to be alone, Horseshoe Bend is one of the most popular attractions in the American West and people are not missing. Be careful to lean out of the rocks, defying dizziness, because this panorama demands more than one shot.

  • The view is stunning. Nothing else to say. There is a fee at the entrance. There is no food or water available for purchase inside, so make sure you pack enough. There is a little walk (20/25 minutes) so bring a hat or sunscreen. It is totally worth the hot weather of the desert.
  • Breathtaking view of the famous horse-shoe shaped meander of Colorado River. Pay $10 to park and an easy mile hike down to the view point. Bring some water and a good camera. It’s always crowded but has enough space for everyone. Best $10 ever spent !
