This wonderful view of the Colorado River winding its way around a bend in the rock is worth a short hike. The hike is about one 1/2 mile round trip over sand and steps. The first part of the hike is up a steep side of a sand dune. The overlook views are the reason form the hike. Taking a full panorama picture of the bend is difficult because of being close up to the bend and not able to perch higher for a wider range shot.
Location is 4 miles to the southeast of Page, off Hwy 89. The Colorado dam is around 8 miles upstream. A sign on the highway directs you to it.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
