Video Introduction To The Wave and Paria Canyon
The Wave is a very scenic and famous formation in the Paria Canyon/Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness along the Utah/Arizona border. It is extremely photogenic and is a popular hiking destination.
There are several other key attractions in this area. The Wave is located in the Coyote Buttes North formation. The Coyote Buttes South area also includes many scenic spots.
Buckskin Gulch, located nearby, is often described as the world's best long slot canyon hike.
This area is located about 45 miles east of Kanab. It is remote and rugged, with few roads and trails. People venturing into the area need to be prepared with knowledge, equipment and appropriate permits.
The area is managed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. BLM has just released a new video that gives a very good overview of the area, along with plenty of specific information. You can see the video below.
