  • I would recommend hiring a guide. With a guide you may have time to see other sights in Coyotes Buttes South (if you are physically able). You only have one day so make the most of it and don't...

  • We hiked the Wave on 10/25/22 and it was awesome. The Wave has to be seen in person to fully appreciate it. The hike was around 7 mi. RT which included wondering around the Wave. The trail is well...

  • This incredible place was discovered by German tourists in the mid-nineties, I would place it as one of the nine natural wonders of the world. Coyote Buttes is a section of the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness managed by the Bureau of Land Management. In order to participatein the lottery, you have to show up early at the BLM office on US 89 North (if you're in a hotel you are likely in Kanab so add an hour of travel time) if and when you win the lottery, the ticket is only good for the next day but once you finally start the hike, there are very few people and it is quite enjoyable. Best times for pictures would be as the sun is setting down. Definitely a MUST.
  • Coyote Buttes/The Wave which is a unique spectacular landscape that can be best described as “otherworldly”. Imagine a trip to Mars without leaving earth!
