Description

The Wave, a rugged and spectacular stretch of sandstone, is hidden in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness near the Arizona-Utah border. The isolated beauty of the rocks, shaped by erosion to form rolling hills and waves, is punctuated by the difficulty and effort required to reach them.

Access to the area is limited to just 20 permits per day, 10 of which are available in advance and the rest as part of a daily lottery drawing. In the springtime, when weather is more suitable to hiking, expect 50-60 people to participate in the lottery for those ten spots.

Hikers with a permit embark on a 6 mile round trip trail-less hike over sandstone rock, to The Wave, a small portion of the wilderness that is difficult (i.e. next to impossible) to find without a GPS unit. Most make the trip in the spring or fall, as the temperature during summer months rarely drops below 100 degrees (F). Hikers and photographers will be rewarded with delicate sandstone formations that seem to rush through the area like water.

Year-round
Additional Details:
Permits are managed by the BLM, and are available from their website. Walk-in permits are available the day before your hike at the Paria Ranger Station.
