Vermillion Cliffs is a relatively new National Monument that protects a section of land on the Arizona-Utah border. The monument is appropriately named, as the brilliant red color of the cliffs strikes you immediately. This monument contains some incredible hikes and attractions, including the world-renowned Wave formation in the heart of the park. However, tourist amenities are very limited, and... More

Nice time hiking and Jeeping around Utah. The absence of crowds and the joy of nature made our day most pleasant!

Wow! What a stunning route from the Grand Canyon North Rim to either Page or Flagstaff. These cliffs are, to me, even more beautiful than Zion National Park. Words can’t describe it. Just take the route and see for yourself.

Drove past the cliffs as the sun was setting and showing off some of the colours at their best. The landscape between Marble Canyon and Jacob Lake is amazing. A long drive to Fredonia and Kanab from Marble Canyon - 70+ miles - but well worth it. Climbing up from the bottom (sort of) of the cliffs you get very... More

We were so lucky to have won the walk in lottery for the wave tickets and couldn't have had a better hike and weather! If you can apply early online for the lottery- do it. Or test your luck with the day prior walk in lottery. We even found the dinosaur tracks with guidance from the volunteer Ken! This will... More

Vermilion Cliffs is a fairly new National Monument, thanks to Bill Clinton who created this during the last days he was in office. thank you Bill! This is an incredible area, so colorful, so vast, and so different from any other places on earth. Everywhere you drive in Southwest Utah and Northwest Arizona yields bountiful views of these cliffs, they... More

We drove 89A from Kanab, Utah to the Condor Viewing Area of Vermillion Cliffs. During this time of year, with Grand Canyon North Rim closed, 89A had little traffic. 89A climbs to almost 9000 feet; we went from temperatures in the 70s in Kanab to 50s in Kaibab Forest. Snow was still on the ground in many parts of the... More

How often have you seen a species that was virtually extinct, and is making a comeback? Our recent visit to Vermillion Cliffs allowed us to see 8 of these huge birds flying above the cliffs. It is a beautiful setting and an amazing sight.

What we saw from our drive along 89A was spectacular. I did not realize how big this place is until we stopped at the overlook that showed the map. It sounds like the best way to see this area is a tour deep into the park if you have a day or more to spend. Otherwise just enjoy the views... More

Even if you just drive along 89 or 89A the sight and view along this unforgettable stretch of highway on a wide open plateau are stunning. Be sure to stop at Lee's Ferry and Cliff Dwellers. If you have more time, explore along the dirt roads or hike into the rugged area. If you do be sure to carry enough... More
