Lake Powell and so much more! Encompassing over 1.2 million acres, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area offers unparalleled opportunities for water-based & backcountry recreation. The recreation area stretches for hundreds of miles from Lees Ferry in Arizona to the Orange Cliffs of southern Utah, encompassing scenic vistas, geologic wonders, and a vast panorama of human history.

Really short trail to the bend. Amazing view of the Colorado river wrapping around. I would suggest going when the sunsets.

Very scenic. A must see while in AZ! Very easy walk from parking lot, which was very crowded towards the end of the day near sunset since it was a holiday weekend.

Such a cool view. Super easy hike!!

The hike was moderate, but has plenty of stretches with no inclines, so that was welcoming. Once at the top, the views are incredible. Our purpose was to hike on and find the river bend closest to the top of this hike. Looks similar to horseshoe bend.

Super crowded at sunset but beautiful nonetheless

Worth the stop. It's a very short trail, but take water. Very popular, but worth the small amount of calories burned to see it.

I only managed to complete the first 4 miles from the south end, but even that small section is fun if you're on a time crunch and want to get out and hike. Definitely plan on completing the entire hike in the future.

Quick easy hike that is 3/4 of a mile with amazing views and it's usually packed, but definitely worth it.

Quick 3/4 of a mile hike, breathtaking view. Would recommend coming out in the winter to avoid crazy tourist season.

Short easy trail to something beyond amazing.

It's so beautiful here, we entered through the crack and climbed out of the VERY STEEP part towards the end, Somebody left some rope there and it was still in good shape a month ago, but there is no way of knowing until you climb up it, wether or not it's starting to fray... Other then that, we saw deer, arches, and everything beautiful Utah has to offer :)
