Horseshoe Bend is the name for a horseshoe-shaped meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona, in the United States. It is located 8 km downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, about 6.4 km southwest of Page. Accessible via a 0.8 km hike from U.S. Route 89, it can be viewed from the steep cliff above. According to Google terrain maps, the overlook is 1300 m above sea level and the Colorado River is at 980 m above sea level making it a 300 m drop.
The Horseshoe Bend parking lot is located 4 miles south of the Glen Canyon dam on the west side. The hiking sign is small and easy to miss, but the parking lot is easy to see from the road. Hike west 3/4 of the mile over loose sand and Navajo sandstone and you will be at the edge. During the summer months this area will get very hot during mid-day. Be sure to bring plenty of water and wear good hiking shoes. The best time to photograph is 1-3pm during the summer months, as the light reaches deep into the canyon (or considering bracketing.) You will need a very wide angle lens to photograph the bend in its entirety.
