Horseshoe Bend

Don’t miss the short trip from Page to see Horseshoe Bend. The Horseshoe Bend overlook provides an awe-inspiring view of the Colorado river meandering on its way to the Grand Canyon. Horseshoe Bend is located about 5 miles south (downstream) from the Glen Canyon Dam on Highway 89.  Look for the small “Horseshoe Bend Overlook” sign along the highway.  There is a 20 minute walk on a sandy path to the bend.  Make sure that you visit this site in the daylight and keep a close watch on children and pets, as there are no physical safety barriers at the cliff’s edge, which has a 1000 ft. drop.
