Nice quick hike down to the edge (be careful, 82 people have fallen over the years). The late afternoon sun is not optimal for photographing the bend this time of year. Still amazing but my photos, not so much. I first went to the right, along the ridge, then up the hills over there and down and around. Then I went back around to the left side. So cool.

Be sure to be mindful of the times you go to the horseshoe. In the late afternoon it is difficult to take pictures because of the light. Otherwise absolutely breathe taking.

Easy hike. Great views/photo op. Lots of people, including tour bus groups! The trail is sandy, some places deep like beach sand.

Incredible views, tons of people. Walk to the sides to get some space and more views. Not a hike per se, more of a walk to the viewing area.
