It’s absolutely beautiful for a trail run. Just have to pay attention as the water/cliffs pull your attention away from your footing. One note: the parking area was closed off with a no trespassing sign so I parked up the road a few hundred yards at one of the local hotels.

Tour bus after tour bus. Not a bad walk out and back. Dogs enjoyed being able to go with us (otherwise we wouldn't have stopped). Looks like they are constructing new trail, unfortunately doesn't look wide enough to support amount of foot traffic this trail experiences. Watch out in the parking lot since it looked like a war for people to get a spot. Worth the walk to see the bend in the river though.

Beautiful views. Easy river access along way. Dogs loved it!

Easy hike to a small dessert and interesting rocks and views

One of the most amazing places I have been in my life do the back land hike if your tour guide offers

We did tour with a guide because you can’t do it without a guide. I wouldn’t call this a hike. It’s pretty time consuming due to the amount of people in group tour and picture taking time. But if your in the area this is a MUST SEE! It will take about 1.5-2 hours tour time. But it’s 100% worth it!

Great view. Big crowd, but still very good.

I wouldn’t consider this a hike at all since it’s super short, but it was gorgeous and beautiful as hell. Definitely something to cross off the bucket list if you already haven’t. The view is amazing!

I wouldn’t really consider this a hike because you are just walking down the hill to the edge to go see Horseshoe Bend. The views are what make this trail amazing. I would go early or late to avoid crowds.

Great for photos but you are packed in the canyon like sardines.

A beautiful scene, however, I can barely consider this a hike. It is almost a dirt road that goes up to a viewpoint, which is surrounded by fences and overhangs. Going anytime after 10 AM is a zoo, with parking lots full of buses. It is definitely a must see place, but I am disappointed its become such a tourist attraction, more focused on the commercial aspect rather than the beauty of wilderness. If you do go, keep in mind the crowds and PACK OUT YOUR TRASH. I was baffled at all of the trash we picked up on this short trail, and we watched a woman throw her food wrapper on the ground. PLEASE, respect our nature and its beauty!

Great hike, worth every minute!

Easy, short walk over a small hill. Sunrise will come up behind you as you’re looking at the bend so before with the canyon in full shadows or a little later in morning once the sun is fully lighting the canyon are probably the two best picture options unless you’re going for sunset

Small walk to sign off bucket list. Looks like ants walking up and down. Horrible parking, chaos.

Guided tour through the canyon. Amazing views, worth every dollar.

This trail is under-rated as an easy hike with great views and an interesting feature. We went in the morning around 7-8 am and there was no one else on the trail. Don't hesitate if you're looking for a free, easy, and enjoyable activity in between your other tours in Page.

Sure.. the pictures that you can take are pretty, but on this extremely heavily trafficed tour it was impossible to walk in a decent way... so in my eyes not an actual trail. The guid was almost rude and didn't focus on anything but where and how to take the pictures. Didn't learn anything about the history of the canyon. My point of view.. a total waste of 180 dollar and my time.

This is a fairly easy walk down to the bend. The view is awesome. You can walk right up to the edge and look down. Make sure you keep an eye on those little ones. Its a bit scary because there is nothing holding you back. Worth the hike. Bring water with you.

A really great view not that long or hard of a walk. But be prepared to get sand in your boots. Also parking is limited and there’s a lot of tourists. If you need to go to the bathroom do it before you start the trail.

spectacular
we did it with our 4 year old
she loved it
bring enough photo memory

Poor parking, heavily trafficked. beautiful view at the half way decent.

This is a walk in loose dirt up a medium grade slope, and down the other side toward the canyon. And, this is a tourist stop for busloads of people who don't know hiking etiquette. That being said, its free and fabulous. It's a must-see for any nature lover, hiker, photographer, etc.
Try to avoid this during peak seasons or on weekends, to ensure the trail isn't over-populated AND that you can find parking.
Like everyone else says in these reviews, the view is incredible. It doesn't matter how many times you've been, it's always lovely to see. I typically stop here for a breath of fresh air on my way to Zion from Phoenix.
Quick, short hike with an iconic view. ...and perfect desktop wallpaper picture opportunity.

I don't really consider this a "hike", but rather more of a walk down stairs, into a canyon that offers you some of the most memorable views in your life. In fact, the only way to enter the canyon is through a tour. If you are a nature lover of any kind, this is a must-do.
As the information above shows, you are not allowed to enter this canyon without a Navajo guide and a permit. Permits are cheap (under $10), and then the price of the tour. It's a large parking lot, so unless you're there in peak season on a weekend, you'll not have too hard a time parking.
The tours are grouped of maybe 20-25 people at a time, with a Navajo guide who offers you details about the canyon and the surrounding land along the way.
Again, you are not allowed to just part and walk down into the canyon. This is for your own safely because if you are in the canyon when it rains, you will drown. Sounds dramatic, but it's true. The guides let you know that only 1 inch of rain above-ground will flood this 80 ft deep canyon. So, heed the warning to never sneak in. Plus, it's about respect. This is tribal land that we're privileged to walk on. So, don't grumble about the fee or that you can't wander around alone. The guides will give you ample opportunities to stop and take pictures.
For those who aren't into hiking, are disabled, or don't exercise regularly, the only way down, into the canyon is by climbing down narrow, grated stair cases.
Fair warning, too, about the amount of tourists here. LIterally busloads. I've been twice, once in October, where there was minimal wait time (maybe 10 min max). The second time I went, I visited in mid-July, around 10am. The wait to get into the canyon lasted 45+ min as you stand outside in direct sunlight. There were hundreds of people standing, waiting for their tour group to enter down into the canyon. And because you're standing in direct sun, there were a few people in line when I was there who fainted. No joke. So if you're not acclimated to desert heat and don't have 2+ bottles of water, DO NOT GO IN THE SUMMER.
Otherwise, this will be one of the most beautiful things you ever see.

This was the most trafficked trail I’ve ever hiked and I hiked it on a Wednesday morning. It’s a huge tourist attraction. But the hike to Horseshoe Bend was very short and the view was incredible. Despite the crowds it was definitely worth going. I would recommend!

Short walk for amazing views! The hike back to the parking lot is pretty steep. Make sure you get there early to beat the crowds.

Alleen te bezoeken middels een tour, het is inderdaad een soort van polonaise door de Canyon maar zeker met wat geduld en manoeuvreren tussen de mensen door absoluut de moeite waard.

Short distance walk but with an amazing view! It gets crowded and very hot in summer time so hydrate!

The tour was amazing! Everything is picture perfect. The only sad part was we got pulled over the night before on our way to the hotel. Lol. So watch out for those cops and drive within speed limit.

The colors of the river and rock are absolutely amazing and so worth the short hike over! Absolutely stunning

I’d give the views of the place a 10/10 if I could. But the fact that there are SO many people that you can’t really enjoy it killed the buzz. On top of the fact that it is a long drive from SOAZ or Central AZ.
