One of the most photographed landmarks in America, Horseshoe Bend is located right off of Route 89 south of Page. Horseshoe Bend, as the name suggests, is a horseshoe-shaped bend in the mighty Colorado River.

The overlook reveals a stunning vista of the red-hued rocks and canyon walls. For the best photo opportunities, and to avoid the tourist crowds, try and get to Horseshoe Bend at dawn when the sunlight divulges the most vibrant colors.

We extended the previous route to include Horseshoe Bend, Antelope Canyon, and Monument Valley since you’re already in the northern part of the state.

The parking at the Horseshoe Bend parking lot is $10, and you may have to wait as it is often full of travelers. From the parking lot, you’ll need to do a short half a mile walk to the viewpoint. Be extremely careful when taking photos and do not get too close to the edge for that perfect selfie as several people had fatal falls at the Horseshoe Bend.
