Hike to Horseshoe bend in Marble canyon near Page, Arizona.

This short hike is a good way to stretch your legs after the long drive from Flagstaff. The trail is easy to follow and the reward for this short hike is a spectacular view of a giant bend the Colorado river makes through Marble Canyon. The birds eye view is impressive and you can get as close to the edge as you dare.
