Busy but worth it! Stay hydrated ok

Great hike to get your heart pumping and see some lovely views in a short time frame. My kids love it but it might be a little challenging for younger kids or adults with balance problems. It's also too tight and busy for me to want to take a dog.

Amazing views from the peak. Had hike at just over 4 miles. Very rocky but not difficult. Go early as it becomes very busy with runners and dogs late morning. I started at 6:30 and hit lots of traffic on my decent.

Fun hike with beautiful views. The hang gliding launch area was interesting to see. Moderate for most of the hike with above moderate in some areas. would definitely do it again.

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.

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

I am a novice at hiking. This was my third trail. Started a couple weeks ago. This is my favorite so far. Didn’t seem as long as everyone says. I like to go slow to take in the views. So many good views on the trail. It’s a decent incline to the peak. The last 1/4 mile to the peak was tough and parts you wondered where the trail was. But once at the top the views are amazing in all directions. Going down was a little difficult with so much loose gravel over rocks. Very small parking lot.

Loved it! visiting from Charlotte, NC. Never hiked much. This was a fun time for me!

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!

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.

The launch point for hang gliders is an amazing view. The trail can be in full sun, if you do this trail in the summer be sure to take a hat and put on sunscreen.

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.

Started at around 8 am Saturday morning and got there just as some of the early birds were finishing so got a great parking spot!
beautiful hike and I would say definitely moderate ( some parts pretty easy and more challenging near the top)
my Fitbit clocked it at 3.75 km up so 7.5 km total. would do again but hopefully get there for sunrise next time

Enjoyed this trail. Did it clockwise, thereby doing nearly all the climbing relatively early. The AllTrails App link for directions isn’t accurate. It links to Apple Maps and stops in the middle of a 4 lane highway, near Prescott and states you have arrived, actually about 8 miles from the trailhead. The AllTrails GPS coordinates are accurate. I put those coordinates into Google Maps and that took me directly to the trailhead for the Yaeger Canyon Loop.

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!

Such a beautiful tribute to our 19 Hotshots. The views along each section are incredible. It is not an easy hike yet well worth the effort. No matter how far one is able to hike, it provides such beauty.

Went on a Sunday and saw maybe 2 other groups on the trail . It’s an incredibly easy hike - the end is sandy but still easy. If you get there before 8am no entrance fee! Amazing views!

Easy hike. The drop into the canyon is steep (like a stair climb) --- but once down it is a stroll. Cool and green -- it is a nice contrast to most of the Sedona hikes. I would agree that a high-clearance car is needed to get to the trailhead -- the road is not bad, but there are a few spots where it is rough enough that I would have killed my own car. The trail is a little hard to follow at times -- and the creek crossings are a challenge without free hands --- but other than that it is a wonderful and refreshing hike. Cottonwood and downtown Clarkdale are cute -- there are nice places to try "local wines" (ask them where they source their grapes) and the Red Rooster is reliable for breakfast/lunch.

Très impressionnant comme point de vue. Pas besoin de beaucoup de temps, se fait très bien.

Very touristy but if you’re okay with that then it’s breath taking... I understand why it’s filled with tourist because it’s easy to access off a main road, easy hike for the whole family, and beautiful views!

I would call it a walk than a hike, its too crowded and very touristy. It's nice but too crowded, got a feeling am in Niagara state park.

Amazing view! Slight overcast but still could see everything! Be patient with the parking because it can be a mess but once you get to the top it’ll be worth it!

even in the rain it's worth the time
