Horseshoe Bend – Spectacular view of Colorado River south of Glen Canyon Dam. Drive south on Hwy 89 (towards Flagstaff) for about 2.5 miles from Wal-Mart to Milepost 544/545. Parking area on west side of highway. Requires a ½ mile walk from parking area to literally the edge of the cliff! The walk is about 15 minutes, if you've been here prior to 2019, they've updated the trail, no longer do you climb the tall sand hill. Now there is a  wide trail with hardener on it, it's nearly like concrete, but with a fair amount of sand & gravel blow over. A wheelchair or stroller could do it, the overall trail is much less steep in any one place and avoids that hill, but sand or rocks on the trail could make it bumpy in places. There are now a couple of significant shade structures for you to rest and view the vistas near the halfway point. There is an admission fee per car.  The city of Page has recently installed restrooms, a shade structure, and a viewing deck with railing.

Be aware that the popularity of Horseshoe Bend has grown dramatically and when the parking lot is full, they close it, often between 10-2.  There is no parking on the highway. Be sure to bring drinking water for you and any pets. You can wear most sensible shoes on the trail, once by the cliff edge, there are sandy places and rocky places, grippy shoes are good for climbing around on the rocks. And, please, be mindful of your kids, there are plenty of places a person could, literally, fall off the cliff.

Antelope Slot Canyon - Really “touristy” but something you should probably see. You can pay to take the “Navajo Shuttle” (bench in the back of a pick-up truck) from downtown Page, or drive yourself. The parking area is located on Hwy 98 for the Upper canyon– it’s easy to find - just east of town. Look for signs (and probably lots of cars) on south side of highway. If you pass the turn-off to Antelope Point or the Navajo Generating Station, you have gone too far! If you turn toward Antelope Point, you will see Lower Antelope Canyon, also touristy, but somewhat more rigorous cave to explore.  I will be sending a separate email with info about how to see all the tour options.

Water Holes Slot Canyon & hike - a slot canyon hike nearly across the street from Horseshoe Bend, at mile marker 542 (on hwy 89), you can reserve ahead at 928-660-2301 or go to the parking lot where they take walk ins. Tours leave every 30 minutes and last 1.5-2 hours, it's $48 per adult, $38 for ages 8-13, no kids under 13 allowed.

Secret Canyon - this canyon is further away from the river in the same erosion channel as Water Holes Canyon, it is a very nice slot canyon and, at last check, vastly less busy than Antelope. https://horseshoebend.com/horseshoe-bend-slot-canyon-tour/

Alstrom Point Tour (not a slot canyon, but a fantastic view of the lake.) -  we locals are a bit sad this has become a tour location as it was one of the last secret places not known to tourists, we usually do a quad ride out to the point, it is truly amazing, consider this tour.   https://horseshoebend.com/alstrom-point-tours-at-horseshoe-bend/
