“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire” – Jennifer Lee
Horseshoe Bend, in my humble opinion, is a masterpiece. The trail is very easy and accessible to all level of hikers. I highly recommend adding this to your itinerary whether you are visiting Grand Canyon or heading off to Utah. You will find this stunning view along Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Hwy 89 S, Page, AZ 86040.
As you can see, there is no shade at all. Bring water and a camera with wide angle lens. The hike back is a little bit uphill (see picture below) but not too strenuous. Unfortunately, we couldn’t stay longer because we had a full itinerary. There are no fees to enter the park and parking is free.
My tips for this trip:
1. Wear comfortable running shoes or hiking shoes.
2. Wear sunscreen and a hat/baseball cap
3. If possible, arrive at noon or late in the afternoon for the best pictures. There are conflicting opinions in this one but anytime after 9:30 am should be good.
4. This is in Page, AZ and there are a lot of other places you may visit in the area if you’d like to spend a few nights.
5. Please be aware that there are no safety railings along the rim of the canyon.
