    Beautiful overlook. It’s just very scary, especially because people get way too close to the edge and it was extremely windy when we went! The views are incredible. Worth the small hike.

    The trail to the bend is easy, the view from up there is magnificent - you're looking down 1,000 ft 😍 Located just outside Page, AZ, this place can't be missed if you're staying in Page. ✌🏼️ #lovely

    the view at the end of the trail is breathtaking. the best part is, you don't see a thing until you get to the edge of the canyon. Amazing view - worth it all!! a great place to take panoramic photos.

    Must take photo lookout area when you’re in the GC rim. Beautiful view! Be careful when climbing on the cliffs!

    Short walk off the highway; the view is breathtaking. Grab some water, the heat is punishing. Also a selfie stick so you can grab pictures from higher up that will give you a fuller view of the bend.

    It’s now $10 per car for entry. About a half mile walk to the actual outlook point. Gorgeous. Hike past the fenced area to get even better views

    One of my very favorite views in the area. Small hike to get there. Great views regardless of crowd. Don't miss it!

    Professional photographers know how to expose for sunset and sunrise shots. If you're not best time to come here is mid day for point and shoot photos. Enjoy!!!

    Amazing scenic views, especially at sunrise and sunset! Lots of tourists leave water bottles behind so please don't litter! And be careful when stepping near the edge.

    Amazing location. Totally worth it, and free! Which is rare anymore. He walk isn’t far. Downhill to the site. Uphill return. Be careful ledges have resulted in death.

    Beautiful view at the eastbound of the grand Canyon in Page. Very little railing hence refrain from crazy selfies. Entrance 10$ per car, totally worth it.

    The most beautiful place around Page, AZ. You can have the best picnic ever with the perfect view. Wait to see a boat down the river to get the idea how high this place is.

    $10 per car. Quick 1-mile walk to a beautiful view. Worth the stop.

    Sunrise is opposite the horseshoe with the sun rays lighting up only the top portion. Sunset is behind the bend. Mid-day brings out the vibrant colours of the sandstone and water.

    Take a lot of water and time your visit. Mid day visit was great but loads of tourists in buses. Sunset might be better!

    Truly impressive! Don’t ignore the recommendations to bring plenty of water if you’re visiting this place in a hot summer day

    Climbing higher doesn’t help you see the entire thing. Best view is on either side of the small gorge.

    Great view, but very dangerous for kids. Passed right by the only warning sign, without noticing. Cliffs are a thousand feet straight down to river, no railings. The natural beauty is breathtaking.

    beautiful view and very windy, and can get rather crowded. We waited an hour for sunset and to secure a good view for pictures

    Short hike from parking area, has inclines and uneven surfaces with a few benches to rest along the way.

    Amazing experience, if a bit nerve wracking. Approach the edge cautiously and on your stomach if extra nervous. Pictures you take will stay with you forever.

    A must see! Hike is short, but in sand and rocks so bring sneakers. Go at sunrise.

    "How impressive can a river corner be?", one might ask. Visit Horseshoe Bend and find out: pretty damn impressive!

    Awesome place to go! Long hike there and back and lots of bugs. But really pretty view. Perfect at sunset:p

    Come for sunset but give yourself 15 minutes to walk there from the parking lot.

    Plentiful parking & the hike to the rim isn't too long. It's not paved.

    Avoid summer noons as it gets too hot and there is a trek of about a mile round trip off the read
