Overlook Location

Horseshoe Bend is located five miles downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell. The overlook is accessible after a half mile, sandy hike just off US Route 89. There are no railings at the cliff, so please use caution during your visit. The map below shows the location of the parking area on US Route 89.
