As part of the Colorado River tour we went around Horseshoe bend in our raft. However, you really appreciate the beauty (and the depth) of this attraction when you visit it from the top of the canyon.
It is a horseshoe shaped meander in the Colorado River. This section of the river is near the town of Page, Arizona. It is about a fifteen minute drive from town. It is a short hike over a hill and across the red rock and sand. As there is no shade it is good to visit early in the morning or later in the afternoon when the sun is not so hot.
We made time for this stop before our Colorado river rafting tour.
