Vermilion Cliffs aka The Wave is a bucket list site to see. That being said, be aware that there is a lottery you must win in order to enter the site.
Only 20 people are allowed into the monument each day. You can enter the...More
While driving on route 89A you can’t miss these beautiful cliffs. The scenery along this route is worth the drive. We drove it from Page to Kanab. There are many sites to see along this route. For us, it was a must see trip.
We wanted to get the most from our vacation so we hired a guide to show us the sites at this location. Unless you know where you're going, you can miss the turn off which is basically a dirt road on BLM property.
The old Route 89A was worth the trip. Its a meandering road, not an express highway, with lots of nice views and more casual ride, if you have the time. The Vermillion Cliffs were spectacular. Make you feel small. The views all around are worth...More
We drove down to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon on 89A and were absolutely amazed at the beauty of the Vermillion Cliffs. After our visit to the North Rim, we drove back up and headed over to Page. This drive was one of...More
The drive and views of the Vermillion Cliffs along highway 89A from Kanab to Page are nothing less than spectacular and stunning. We were fortunate to have the sun shining brightly during our drive. Since photographs cannot fully capture the beauty of what we saw,...More

If you really want to see the amazing "photographer's dream" vermillion and ivory geologic formations, I suggest going to the White Pocket. You do not need a permit and you can drive there on your own. However, the drive is very long over very bumpy and sandy "roads". My suggestion is to book a day or sunset tour with Paria Outfitters (Kanab, UT). Once at the Pocket, the hike around the area is magnificent and not too long and very physically "do-able" . The guides are great and they provide food. Plus you can camp on their property and use an actual bathroom!

You do not need a permit to enter the monument (drive through on the scenic route), however some areas of the park require a permit for access - North Coyote Buttes (The Wave), South Coyote Buttes and Paria Canyon. At Paria Canyon, you can purchase a day-use permit at the trail head. For overnight backpacking/camping at Paria Canyon you must purchase a permit in advance and there is a limit of 20 permits per day. North and South Coyote Buttes require advance permits for hiking, and the number of permits are limited. There is a lottery for permits to North Coyote Buttes (The Wave). There is detailed information on the BLM website for Vermilion Cliffs about how to apply for the permits. Some can be applied for online with a credit card up to 4 months in advance. They cost $5-7. Tripadvisor does not allow me to post a link. Search "Bureau of Land Management Arizona lotteries and permit systems".
