Horseshoe Bend Trail

Horseshoe Bend Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Hike a gentle trail along a raging river. Perfect for evening and early morning strolls. Perfect for introducing children to the wonders of nature. Perfect for stretching your legs out on the way to Heather Meadows. Perfect for watching diving dippers and daring river kayakers. And perfect for staring into tumultuous rapids. But a terrible place for carrying on a conversation— the river’s roar is deafening, its allure oh-so intoxicating.

Despite being easy to walk, near a popular campground, and offering access to a spectacular wild river, Horseshoe Bend surprisingly is not a terribly busy trail. Don't be stunned to find a handful of vehicles at the trailhead, however; the trail may be deserted, but the river may not be. This is a popular launch and take-out for river runners."
