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
Il faut quand même payer l'entrée du parking environ 20 dollars pas vehicule et faire 20 minute de marche mais le jeux en vaux la chandelle avec une vu époustouflante more »You still have to pay the entrance to the parking lot about 20 dollars not vehicle and make 20 minutes walk but the games are worth the candle with a breathtaking view
It's a short little walk in sand. Plenty of room to roam and play on the rocks or just stand at the overlook and take some pics. more »
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 !
