Hiking in Paria Canyon–Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Area
If you want to see related slickrock formations but are finding it hard to get a permit for Coyote Buttes North, an alternative is to explore Coyote Buttes South. Permits are in less demand and can be obtained online between four months and one day in advance at https://www.blm.gov/az/paria/index.cfm?usearea=CB.
A 4WD is absolutely required if you plan to explore the park's deep-sand access roads. Ask rangers for directions.
