Horseshoe Bend Hike (Arizona)
Horseshoe Bend, just 9 miles upstream from the Grand Canyon, has become one of the most iconic spots in the American Southwest. It's a short hike but worth every second. And recent improvements have made Horseshoe Bend accessible under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Where is Horseshoe Bend?
Horseshoe Bend is located just outside of Page, Arizona. Use this trailhead address:
Horseshoe Bend, Page, AZ 86040
Horseshoe Bend is open from sunrise to sunset, with the busiest times being 9:00am to 11:00am and 4:30pm to 6:30pm. I recommend going early in the morning or at noon when the sun is overhead, making it easy to see into the canyon.
This is a short hike and you can really do this in casual street clothes. The summer can get hot and I recommend bringing at least a small water bottle and sun protection.
Gear That I Love Right Now
Nothing is sponsored or promoted, just the actual gear that I use.

Hi, I'm Cris Hazzard, aka Hiking Guy, a professional outdoors guide, hiking expert, and author based in Southern California. I created this website to share all the great hikes I do with everyone else out there. This site is different because it gives detailed directions that even the beginning hiker can follow. I also share what hiking gear works and doesn't so you don't waste money. I don't do sponsored or promoted content; I share only the gear recommendations, hikes, and tips that I would with my family and friends. If you like the website and YouTube channel, please support these free guides (I couldn't do it without folks like you!).
