Interesting, short, more a walk as others have commented, extend the hike a bit beyond trail end a bit more climbing, enjoy the panaramic views.

Free hike, short and easy! There was no shade until the end, so the sand was hot on our feet! It was a little anticlimactic - basically it's just a side of an overhang that has some plants growing on the wall. Much smaller than expected!

Great open area beyond gardens. Actually found two very good entry points to the lake. Easy place to hike on good rocks and easy to stay off vegetation/sand.

May 2019 trip to Southwest, sixth visit to AZ, last time was 10 years ago in late spring. Day 3 Third time in Page (last time was here on way to Grand Canyon North Rim). I was planning hike to Horseshoe Bend but parking lot was full. This was (Main Goal#2 of trip), but got lucky tomorrow. Beautiful desert landscape with amazing views on Lake Powell and small lush oasis.

Very quick and easy hike - perfect pit stop for the the kids (5, 9, & 12) on our way back to Phoenix. Take the fork right for the Hanging Gardens (marked here) or left for an overlook of Lake Powell. Overlook requires light climbing up rock face, but we all did it fine. Trail wasn’t too busy on Saturday morning.

The hanging gardens are pretty awesome. Worth the short hike. Even though it gets hot, there was plenty of shade at the hanging garden.

Beautiful morning stroll along hanging garden well marked trail. Up to viewpoint then over to hanging garden. Great photo ops along the way. Took the trail at the end of the hanging garden to take path less traveled to avoid the Corona;) 4 or 5 other families on trail with young children.

Great trail. Didn’t go to the garden climbed to the lookout instead. Great views. Kids had a great time climbing the rock formations in the area. Perfect trail for families

Ended up getting lost and going further down the road to the "beach" (to the left when you pull in). It was BEAUTIFUL. Very steep and crumbling hill to climb down from the parking lot, then you can hike on the cliffs. Only a couple of people there during the spring. Amazing views of the river and dam and beautiful sandstone cliffs
