South Coyote Buttes

This special place in the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument is a great day hiking area with so many natural wonders and geological craziness! It is located just south of the famous WAVE. And has become a favorite of photographers for the difference in the rock formations and colors.

The hike is also quite a bit shorter than going to the Wave, which allows more time for hiking and exploring ! The guides will help you to find some of the best areas for photos, along with showing you Dinosaur foot prints, and a possible sighting of Native American artifacts that have been found during our tours.

This hike has very delicate areas, and the guides will show you the best ways to keep safe, while respecting all of the important history found and geological formations in the area.
The area is a BLM Permit area which keeps the crowds small, and the experience a great one.

Photographers are claiming this to be better than the WAVE due to the area being so much larger for the perfect photo! With similar rock formations and colors.

This is a permitted area. Overnight camping is NOT available.


This tour usually takes about 4 to 5 hours of total driving time, and the area can be hiked in 2 to 5 hours depending on how comfortable you feel, and how safe we are especially during hot summer months, and during rainstorms.
This area will require about one gallon of water per person during the summer times.
This is overall a moderate hike for anyone able to walk over uneven rocks, and sections of sand.
