great views, overcrowded, limited parking during sunset hours - head left at the rim to escape from the tourists

Beautiful but those flies

Beautiful but those flies

Beautiful view but it comes with very little work and a high volume of tourists.

Short walk over a hill to reach the bend, which surprisingly doesn't have any safety rails (great for photographers, surprising for anything USGOV-run). This trail isn't closed down at sunset, so nighttime photography at the bend without throngs of tourists is very doable. Wear shoes to deal with several inches of sand which covers the entire trail.

The view is amazing. A lot of tourists and the hike is very easy

Started at the water tank "sneaker route" trailhead. only make it coyote natural bridge. Will come back and make it to cliff arch someday! There is usually a rope to descend but we were there during the winter and scaled the wall into and out of the canyon as there was no rope. Would not recommend this scramble unless you are able bodied and pretty confident. Rewarding views and solitude make this hike worth it!

Too many tourists,hard to take pictures but view was breath taking!!well worth the hike

Touristy! Current construction going on...they are making it wheelchair accessible for all to enjoy...with a safer pad/platform at the end. This will make it safe for all. Completion time Summer 2018. I enjoyed the many views from top, but again too crowded.

Gorgeous view!! Definitely a must see/must do hike. If you are afraid of heights, it may not be for you as you can stand very close to the edge with no railing. I went yesterday, part of the holiday weekend, and there were a lot of people mid day, but it wasn't too bad. I would love to go back for sunrise or sunset.

I expected it to be overrated, but it was not at all! The views are amazing, and the walk to reach Horseshoe Bend isn't strenuous at all.

kinda the long way to do this - better to drop in at the trailhead via the crack, camp, come out at Jacob Hamlin (150' of rope recommended) - NO DOGS ALLOWED IN COYOTE (it's part of Glen Canyon)

this route would add on a lot of extra mileage w/o great scenery - better to drop in at the crack at the Coyote Trailhead, camp, come out at Jacob Hamlin (150' rope recommended) - NO DOGS ALLOWED IN COYOTE (it's part of Glen Canyon)

yeah, you could do this. better to go to coyote trailhead, drop in via the crack, camp, come out at Jacob Hamlin Arch (150' of rope recommended) - NO DOGS ALLOWED IN COYOTE (it's part of Glen Canyon)

Very heavily trafficked with tourists! I had to separate myself to get away from the hoards of people! Challenging to capture a good picture as people are always walking in your way. Beautiful site, but probably wouldn’t go back. The trail itself... very sandy but fairly easy for an experienced biker.

So. Many. Tourists. Most of whom were using a selfie stick or posing literally right on the edge. The beauty of the canyon did not compensate for the hoards of ridiculous people.

Super short walk to an absolutely stunning view of the river. If you are in the area it would be a shame to pass this one by. Photos don't do it justice.
