Horseshoe Bend - Arizona - Vertical No2 by Debra Martz I climbed a little higher up but this was my limit. Could not bring myself to climb to the highest point. It made me dizzy just looking at those that were up there on such uneven and perilous ground. Located about 5 miles south of Page, AZ one can hike to view this iconic meander of the Colorado River. The overlook is 4,200 feet above sea level, and the Colorado River is 3,200 feet above sea level, which gives this scenic view a breathtaking 1,000 foot drop. The hike is about 1.5 mile round-trip; The trail is steep in some areas, and has some areas of deep sand, so be prepared for a challenge despite the short distance. AND if doing this in the summer time, carry water with you!
