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.

Beautiful! Lots of people but worth it!

Starting before sunrise on Feb 18, it took me 2 hours to get to within 200 m of the top. It's very exposed, but starting so early meant I was. in shade. until I got back near the bottom. The views near and far are extraordinary and because the footing is unstable (rocks, pebbles, sand, slick rock) and I was hiking solo, I stopped often to ogle. Don't rush this trail. Boat sounds carry, so getting out early, you have the quiet of water, birds, and wind before the internal combustion engines harsh the mellow of the river bend.

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

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)
