The Horseshoe Bend Hiking Route in the Grand Canyon

An accomplished neurosurgeon, David H. Segal, MD, graduated summa cum laude from the State University of New York Health Science Center in Brooklyn. Now pursuing a legal career, he earned his JD from the University of Iowa College of Law, graduating with distinction. Outside of work, David H. Segal, MD, enjoys traveling with his family, and fondly recalls the time they hiked the Grand Canyon in Arizona.

One feature of the Grand Canyon is the various hiking routes available requiring different levels of experience. Among the beginner-level routes recommended by Conde Nest Traveler, the Horseshoe Bend is two hours by car from the South Rim. Close to Page, Arizona, it’s five miles away from Grand Canyon National Park itself.

The trail covers 1.5 miles round-trip. Its highlight is a stunning view of the famous U-shaped curve of the Colorado River below. The ideal time to hike is in March, particularly in the afternoon to catch the sunset. Vacationers looking to relax afterwards can also head to Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell, which are located in the vicinity.
