Don't Miss Horseshoe Bend in Northern Arizona
Although beautiful in a picture, the amazing red rocks surrounding Lake Powell are much more vivid in person. While in picturesque Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, schedule plenty of time to see Horseshoe Bend.
This section of the San Marcos River is located four miles south of Page, off of Highway 89 and approximately five miles south of Glen Canyon Dam. Its name is derived from the natural horseshoe-shaped bend of the river.
Enjoy the 3/4-mile stroll on the trail, to the edge of the cliff for viewing this magnificent natural wonder. Be sure to bring your camera and a wide lens, to capture the entire bend in the frame.
The edge of the cliff is at an elevation of 4,200 feet, with the river about 1,000 feet below it. This incredible viewpoint is one not-to-miss.
