Established in November 2000, this remote and unspoiled, 280,000-acre Monument is a geologic treasure, containing a variety of diverse landscapes from the Paria Plateau, Vermilion Cliffs, Coyote Buttes, and Paria Canyon. Elevations range from 3,100 to 7,100 feet. Steep eroded escarpments consisting primarily of sandstone, siltstone, limestone and shale have been deeply eroded for millions of years, exposing hundreds of layers of richly colored rock strata.

Did Buckskin to Lee's Ferry. Changed my life. After the first day of hiking, didn't see another human for 48 hours. It was unreal.

Awesome slot canyon hike, pretty easy except large drop assisted with tree ladder. Well with a trip!

We were lucky to win the Lottery at first attempt. It’s really a great privilege to be able to do this epic hike. Fantastic to see the Wave in real, but don’t forget to go further to Wave2 and down in the Canyon. There’s a lot to see.
Also, if you want the best light you should be on site early morning, preferably before 10 am. Afternoon light is also pretty nice, as it reveal other parts of the Wave.

We went in December and were lucky to score a walk up permit on our first try. The hike was breath taking, not just the wave but the journey there was filled with beautiful scenery. Note that in December aim to arrive by 10:30am at the wave for bear light, we got there around 1pm and parts were shaded but it was still amazing.

definitely have a good 4wd and be comfortable driving in sand. then it is totally amazing.

Gorgeous!

Entered Buckskin via Wire Pass trial and went right. There were 5-6 pools calf deep with a few inches of mud. Pools are very cold however not to bad. Turned around and headed back up Buckskin for about 2 hours and I might say it was well worth it. We were told not to head that way due to not much to see “wrong”. Look for the whole cow skeleton of to the left of the dry bed. #neverstopwandering

We were so lucky to win the lottery online. Came all the way from NY and we were awestruck. We felt like we were on Mars the entire time. We went in January and it was a fantastic temp of 53 degrees. We had no cell service or gps service, you’re really out in the middle of nowhere and it’s great if you know what you’re doing

The water may be 40 degrees, but at least it’s thigh deep!

Insanely long drive, but if you love photography it’s worth it. I️ have an Audi Q7 and barely made it through the deep sand. It would be better with a 4wd with off road tires. Very unique rock swells.
