Approximately 5 miles (8 km) south of Carl Hayden Visitor Center on U.S. Hwy 89, just south of highway marker 545, turn at the sign onto the dirt road which ascends the small hill. Park at the base of the hill. Vehicles are prohibited beyond the end of the parking lot at the base of the hill.

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.

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.

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.
