This overlook over the Colorado River is one of the most dramatic sights you’ll find on the grand canyon. From the top of the meander’s mesa is a 1000 feet or 300 metre drop into the water. The red sandstone canyon walls, the aquamarine mineral rich water below and the blue sky above all create a ridiculously good photo opportunity. Throw in a sunset and words literally cannot describe the beauty of this place.

An important distinction to note is that this guide is not directing you to the top of the mesa itself. Rather, from the US Route 89, about 4 miles south of the Glen Canyon Dam, there is a 1.5 kilometer access trail that will take you to an overlook above Horseshoe Bend. The mesa itself is on the other side of the river.
