Easy, short walk over a small hill. Sunrise will come up behind you as you’re looking at the bend so before with the canyon in full shadows or a little later in morning once the sun is fully lighting the canyon are probably the two best picture options unless you’re going for sunset

Small walk to sign off bucket list. Looks like ants walking up and down. Horrible parking, chaos.

Guided tour through the canyon. Amazing views, worth every dollar.

This trail is under-rated as an easy hike with great views and an interesting feature. We went in the morning around 7-8 am and there was no one else on the trail. Don't hesitate if you're looking for a free, easy, and enjoyable activity in between your other tours in Page.

What a great hike!!! Not hard at all, but if you are not used to elevation it can sometimes get hard to breathe.

Sure.. the pictures that you can take are pretty, but on this extremely heavily trafficed tour it was impossible to walk in a decent way... so in my eyes not an actual trail. The guid was almost rude and didn't focus on anything but where and how to take the pictures. Didn't learn anything about the history of the canyon. My point of view.. a total waste of 180 dollar and my time.

This is a fairly easy walk down to the bend. The view is awesome. You can walk right up to the edge and look down. Make sure you keep an eye on those little ones. Its a bit scary because there is nothing holding you back. Worth the hike. Bring water with you.

We are visiting Page for 2 days with 2 families and learned about this place from a tour magazine. After the crowded antelope canyon visits in the morning and noon, we had about 4 hours to spend, and need some change of pace, so we went there afterwards. I did some research ahead and was expecting that big drop. I also need to point out we are not serious hikers and we got 4 kids in our group from 10 to 17. But way before that big drop, only 5 mins after we started the hike, we were challenged by a big mud hole which we spent 30 mins trying to figure out how to pass. There were at least 2 couples returned from that point visibly disappointed since they could not pass that spot. Eventually, we managed to pass from the left side by inching around the wall. There were a few holes on the wall where you can position your foot barely and you can use your hands to grab around on the top which could serve as a handle. There was no mention of this mud hole in any of the reviews I read and after passing this mud hole, nothing was harder even with the big drop. Not sure if there are any other ways around that mud hole but we were glad we eventually managed through. For that big drop, just keep to the right and look for the cairns almost straight cross the areas where the water fall supposedly to come down. We made to the Colorado river. It was a fun challenge and everyone liked it.

A really great view not that long or hard of a walk. But be prepared to get sand in your boots. Also parking is limited and there’s a lot of tourists. If you need to go to the bathroom do it before you start the trail.

spectacular

This is a walk in loose dirt up a medium grade slope, and down the other side toward the canyon. And, this is a tourist stop for busloads of people who don't know hiking etiquette. That being said, its free and fabulous. It's a must-see for any nature lover, hiker, photographer, etc.
Try to avoid this during peak seasons or on weekends, to ensure the trail isn't over-populated AND that you can find parking.
Like everyone else says in these reviews, the view is incredible. It doesn't matter how many times you've been, it's always lovely to see. I typically stop here for a breath of fresh air on my way to Zion from Phoenix.
Quick, short hike with an iconic view. ...and perfect desktop wallpaper picture opportunity.

I don't really consider this a "hike", but rather more of a walk down stairs, into a canyon that offers you some of the most memorable views in your life. In fact, the only way to enter the canyon is through a tour. If you are a nature lover of any kind, this is a must-do.
As the information above shows, you are not allowed to enter this canyon without a Navajo guide and a permit. Permits are cheap (under $10), and then the price of the tour. It's a large parking lot, so unless you're there in peak season on a weekend, you'll not have too hard a time parking.
The tours are grouped of maybe 20-25 people at a time, with a Navajo guide who offers you details about the canyon and the surrounding land along the way.
Again, you are not allowed to just part and walk down into the canyon. This is for your own safely because if you are in the canyon when it rains, you will drown. Sounds dramatic, but it's true. The guides let you know that only 1 inch of rain above-ground will flood this 80 ft deep canyon. So, heed the warning to never sneak in. Plus, it's about respect. This is tribal land that we're privileged to walk on. So, don't grumble about the fee or that you can't wander around alone. The guides will give you ample opportunities to stop and take pictures.
For those who aren't into hiking, are disabled, or don't exercise regularly, the only way down, into the canyon is by climbing down narrow, grated stair cases.
Fair warning, too, about the amount of tourists here. LIterally busloads. I've been twice, once in October, where there was minimal wait time (maybe 10 min max). The second time I went, I visited in mid-July, around 10am. The wait to get into the canyon lasted 45+ min as you stand outside in direct sunlight. There were hundreds of people standing, waiting for their tour group to enter down into the canyon. And because you're standing in direct sun, there were a few people in line when I was there who fainted. No joke. So if you're not acclimated to desert heat and don't have 2+ bottles of water, DO NOT GO IN THE SUMMER.
Otherwise, this will be one of the most beautiful things you ever see.

This was the most trafficked trail I’ve ever hiked and I hiked it on a Wednesday morning. It’s a huge tourist attraction. But the hike to Horseshoe Bend was very short and the view was incredible. Despite the crowds it was definitely worth going. I would recommend!

Short walk for amazing views! The hike back to the parking lot is pretty steep. Make sure you get there early to beat the crowds.

Alleen te bezoeken middels een tour, het is inderdaad een soort van polonaise door de Canyon maar zeker met wat geduld en manoeuvreren tussen de mensen door absoluut de moeite waard.

Short distance walk but with an amazing view! It gets crowded and very hot in summer time so hydrate!

We started this hike at 6.30pm mid July and it was perfect. Most of the trail was already shaded from
the sun, which made the tour fairly easy. You should still bring plenty of water tho! It was a very easy hike, beautiful scenery and when we arrived at the Toadstools, it looked like on Mars. Would definitely recommend this hike in the later afternoon in summer.

The tour was amazing! Everything is picture perfect. The only sad part was we got pulled over the night before on our way to the hotel. Lol. So watch out for those cops and drive within speed limit.

I did this trial in early July while my dad and son slept in the car. It was pretty easy, but make sure you have a lot of water. Its well worth the short hike to see the toadstools.

The colors of the river and rock are absolutely amazing and so worth the short hike over! Absolutely stunning

I’d give the views of the place a 10/10 if I could. But the fact that there are SO many people that you can’t really enjoy it killed the buzz. On top of the fact that it is a long drive from SOAZ or Central AZ.

Very cool

Try and get there as early as possible because the parking lot at this place is absolutely insane! It is way too over crowded and people don’t pay attention to where they’re going. The view is absolutely amazing and it’s a must see but I’m only giving it 4 stars because of how crazy the parking situation is.

beautiful trail, lots of scrambling over rockfall.

Wow. This trail was amazing! We were the ONLY ones on the trail for our entire hike!! We hiked for two hours up the trail, then we hiked 2 hours back and took the river back. It was gorgeous. We stood under some waterfalls and it was refreshing on a hot day.

This canyon may be the best I have ever hiked despite the crowd. Went around 10 am but still got plenty of great shots. Would definitely go again when in the area.

Short hike, crowded and need to wear good shoes. Sand covered rock makes for an easy slip. Saw a couple people go down. Was very windy and got sand in my eye on a couple occasions. Was there early evening, maybe its better at sunset but was not impressed.

Took our 10 and 7yo along. Loved it! Some fun climbs and descents.
