THE FAMOUS VIEW OF THE COLORADO RIVER
WHAT TO DO IN HORSESHOE BEND? MY JOURNEY
This is THE view not to be missed if you are in the area. As its name suggests, the Colorado River makes a huge horseshoe-like bend right in the middle of huge cliffs. The view is impressive to see!
To get there, you have a parking at the entrance, then you walk about twenty minutes to the view. Enjoy the view as much as you want and then return the same way. It’s a very short visit, but the view is worth the detour.
Entrance fee to Horseshoe Bend: $10 / €9.50 per vehicle
WHEN TO GO?
I was there at the beginning of June. The weather was great but there was quite a bit of wind. It all depends on the day.
Allow only an hour. Like I say, it’s just a short walk and a view.
MY 3 TIPS TO VISIT HORSESHOE BEND
- Bring water because there is no water point there.
- Go there from the end of the morning to have beautiful colors.
- Do not hesitate to walk where you can once you have arrived at the point of view.
