Horseshoe Bend, Page

4.8
Horseshoe Bend is a natural wonder famous for its striking contrast of water against red rocks. Just as its name suggests, the bend is a horseshoe-shaped curve cut into the rocks by the Colorado River, located just 6 km (4 mi) southwest from the town of Page. You can take a raft or helicopter tour or hike to the bend over a fairly short but very steep and rugged trail, often made more difficult by excessive heat. If you do choose to walk across this challenging terrain, be sure to wear rubber-soled shoes, light clothing, sunglasses, and a hat. To avoid dehydration, drink lots of water and make frequent stops as you hike to the scenic overlook above the meandering river.

Where to stay in Page

For a chance to explore Arizona's famous canyon country without missing out on all the comforts of home, stay at a hotel or bed and breakfast in or near Page. A convenient base for exploring the surrounding area, this small town contains plenty of well-stocked shops, bars, and restaurants. If you don't need many modern amenities and prefer to experience the region from a less urban location, consider a campground near Lake Powell, located just 3.2 km (2 mi) from the center of the city.
