This place was amazing. It does require a 4x4 vehicle, and is easier when it is wet and cold to get here, but if you get here, it is amazing. I did a Google Earth Trail here if you want to walk around virtual like in 360 degrees. You can see it on Google Earth or on my blog ShaunasAdventures dot com. If you go, make sure you don't leave until you find the awesome gulch area. it is jaw dropping.

incredible walk/hike. this is just beautiful.

This is a must go place, forget about the wave that most of us probably won't get drawn anyway, white pocket is as good with no permit is required, you can go there any time. it's a long drive though, from 89 exiting point to white pocket, it's about 36 miles of off road drive, most of vehicles can make to the pine tree pocket ranch, the last 12 mile drive to white pocket is deep sand, which requires true 4x4 with high ground clearance.

This place is amazing. It's a long drive in deep sand though but definitely worth it.

Essentially a discount Coyote Buttes for those who couldn't get a permit. I love off-roading, but the drive was long and tedious, with little of interest on the way after passing Coyote Buttes South. There is a short trail leading from the "parking lot" to White Pocket itself, but exploring is free-form once the trail terminates at the sandstone. Not sure I'd do it again.

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.

WARNING Roads become deep sand on the roads and some parts are a sand pit with deep loose sand. Road also has rocks in road that becomes tricky to drive over. Road it NOT for a car, must have 4×4 truck that is setup to drive off road and it would be better if you had off road jeep. Cool place once you get there.

Not worth the insanely long drive on a dirt road to get there!

Went to White Pocket today. The whole place is awesome!
A must if you are in the area.
Good alternative to the Wave, some say its nicer...

Get Map and directions from Guides at the visitor Center.
We took following roads 1017 -1087 - 1086
Up to the ranch driving is easy. Afterwards there are a few tricky sections.
However if you have some experience in sand and a 4WD there will be no problem.
Just keep going!
Shortly before the gate there is a big bump/pothole, be carefull and dont overspeed.

White Pocket is absolutely stunning. Four wheel drive is required deep sand.
