Welcome to the Horseshoe Bend Tour
Why do 2.2 million people visit a Riverbend each year? Find out with this self-guided tour of the unforgettable Horseshoe Bend! This jaw-dropping canyon, cut through by the stunning Colorado River, is famous for a reason. See it up close and learn how this one-of-a-kind feature formed! And since you are already planning a visit to Horseshoe Bend, we also suggest dropping by the town of Page, once a rugged work camp and now home to incredible sights and hikes.
About the Horseshoe Bend Arizona Tour
Once you’ve downloaded your tour, you’ll begin your journey in the parking area for Horseshoe Bend. From there, all you need to do is follow the ¾-mile path toward the canyon itself.
Along the way, you’ll hear about the early days of the mighty Colorado River, when it was little more than a meandering river on a floodplain. As you walk, you’ll find out how that floodplain transformed into the soaring plateau we know today and how that violent geologic event created Horseshoe Bend.
You’ll also get details about the area’s human history, like how it passed from the Navajo to the hands of the US Government.
Finally, you’ll arrive at Horseshoe Bend itself, where multiple viewing platforms offer jaw-dropping views of this unique landmark. Don’t forget to take plenty of pictures for your Instagram account! Your tour of Horseshoe Bend concludes here.
Bonus Tour of Page, Arizona
Also included with your tour is a driving tour of Page, the town where Horseshoe Bend is located. This tour begins at the Glen Canyon Dam Overlook, where you can get phenomenal views of the dam, which was the whole reason for the town’s existence.
From there, you’ll head north to a collection of breathtaking trails full of grand desert vistas. Then it’s on to the dam itself, where you’ll have the opportunity to get out of your car and actually walk over the immense structure!
Then, you’ll head to Wahweap Overlook, offering a stunning look across Lake Powell. Your tour concludes here.
