Nice guided hike looks awesome.

This is a heavily advertised, short hike right off of Hwy 89, so you are going to have lots of company. It's a short hike to some interesting stuff. You can wander around quite a bit in various directions, which I am sure is an ecological disaster, but that ship has sailed, so to speak. The hoodoos at Wahweap are more interesting, but you have to walk 4.5 miles to get to those, so this is a lot more accessible.

Busy but worth it! Stay hydrated ok

This was my first hike when I moved to Oregon in 2016. I hiked one week before the fire. I will always cherish this trail as my favorite.

Nice to see! We made this a pit stop on our drive from Flagstaff to Zion. We had a 10:30 am antelope canyon tour so stopped by here before. It was cool to see but not the best lighting yet at 8:30 in the morning. It’s a quick pit stop. Spent about 35 min here. Came back after our tour finished at noon because we weren’t in a hurry to get to Zion. Lighting was much better. Would recommend to see if you’re in the area. Not something I would go out of my way for though.

Oh heck yes!! This was on my bucket list and worth every single penny!

Crowded but worth it.

Go for sunrise! View is amazing, tourists are not.

Just returned from visiting one of most photographed canyon
It should be on Bucket list of every body

Fun stop at sunrise. Trail is sandy and descends to the viewpoint and is great to fly down. Canyon rim will be filled with photographers, but plenty of room to wander. Fairly flat areas to just run free and explore on the red rock await at the end of trail.

Amazing! Would do it again and highly recommend it to anyone. Easy hike/walk for all.

Showed up for sunrise. No disappointment here. If in the area definitely worth the stop!

Friendly guide and even took time to take our pictures in the canyon. Amazing to see how water can shape the sandstone into interesting shapes and passages. There were 15 in our group. Paid about 100 dollars for the both of us.

The views and surrounding areas of the toadstools was well worth the hike.

Great hike! Permits are no longer available, and it can only be done with a tour guide. That being said, the company that does the tour (Waterhole Canyon Experience) are very nice people and is a good price ($48 as of this writing).

It’s not well known (yet), so my tour group had only 3 people in it, making it very easy to enjoy and take photos. Most people are going to Antelope Canyon.

Loved this trail!

There are very few times in my life that I have seen something that has given me goosebumps the first time I laid eyes on it ... Horseshoe Bend was one of them.

Maybe it was because of how dark it was (we arrived for sunrise) or because of the vastness of the canyon and how perfectly shaped the horseshoe was, but its pure and utter natural beauty almost brought tears to my eyes.

We got up around 5 am on 10/16 after camping about a mile or two down the road from the Wahweap Overlook. After packing up our tent and heading to the trailhead, we arrived at the parking lot around 5:45 am. This was just in time to snag a perfect spot on the rocks overlooking the bend, only having to share it with one other photographer. In total, we probably shared the view with 15 other people, but I'll take that every day over the swarm of tourists that congregated at the parking lot at noon the day prior.

The "hike" itself is just a short walk up and down a small hill. It was 100 percent worthwhile to get up early to catch the majesty of this scenic viewpoint at its most perfect hour. I don't doubt that sunset here is also impeccable, but I'd rather do without the crowds.

Extremely touristy and must pay to get in. Would have loved to see it but the line was so long to get in (on a Thursday in October) and traffic was at a standstill. I’m sure it’s beautiful but this was not what I would call a trail or hike, more like a paid line you walk thru.

If you are in the area, you have to do this! But I wouldn't make a huge detour for it. It's mostly just a place to take a picture (which you've seen thousands of times) with many...many tourists

great views, but extremely busy. We went early and were able to beat the crowds a bit. I'd recommend going at sunrise instead of sunset to avoid glares in photos.

Great views and an easy hike

This my was dogs first hike! She loved it! She was climbing up the rocks and had the biggest smile on her face with her tongue out :) It was beautiful to watch the sunset. Super easy, but climbing the higher parts was fun!

The toadstool hoodoos are unreal. If you travel along highway 89 and pass by the place with an hour to spare, try to go to see this nature wonder. I went there in early PM in mid October. It was not hot, rather it was a bit cold.

Holy crap this hike was awesome! The lottery system keeps crowds down to 20 people per day, which you really appreciate when you arrive.

It was beautiful! I loved it. It is on the Navajo land. You must go with a tour guide. In the past there have been deaths here due to flash flood. So I decided to go with a guide from Dixie tour. The guide Melaney was great and friendly. I highly recommend going there early to avoid the crowd. Book in advance and follow all the instructions. It cost me $50 but it was worth every penny. Don’t recommend it if you are claustrophobic.

Easy hike. Excellent views, but a very crowded hike.

Great place for a photo under the arch... short and easy.... could be crowded.
