North Coyote Buttes [Explored]

Coyote Buttes is a section of the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), spanning extreme South Central Utah and North Central Arizona, just south of US 89 halfway between Kanab, Utah and Page, Arizona. It is divided into two areas: Coyote Buttes North and Coyote Buttes South. Visiting either of the Coyote Buttes areas requires purchasing a hiking permit in advance. Only 20 people per day are allowed to hike in.

 

One of the highlights of Coyote Buttes North Area is the rock formation known as The Wave, a swirling sandstone formation.

 

The Wave and Buckskin Gulch share the Wire Pass Trailhead on House Rock Valley Road.
