Horseshoe Bend is a picturesque horseshoe-shaped turn in the Colorado
River, just South of the town of Page, Arizona. Visitors can reach
Horseshoe Bend by taking a short 1/2 mile (0.8 kilometers) hike off US
Route 89 to an overlook 1,000 feet (405 meters) above the river.
Horseshoe Bend is part of Glen Canyon, which was carved by the Colorado
River over a period of 5 million years. Glen Canyon is also home to the
beautiful Lake Powell. Horseshoe Bend is popular with photographers and
tourists who seek the beautiful canyon scenery.
