What a beautiful area! The drive there from Page through Marble Canyon is beautiful too. It was so neat to see them release the Condors from the cliffs. I will be going again. It's about an hour's drive from Page but I would give yourself...More
We took an early morning drive out of Page down 89S to 89A west across to Vermilion Cliffs N.M., and were rewarded with red cliffs glowing in the morning light. Just beautiful. A quick stop at the Navajo Bridge interpretive center and then on to...More
Just when you think you cannot be amazed by another type of landscape or rock formations, I was again inspired by a completely new and different scenery! Long drive along Highway 89A including Navajo Bridge at the end with a visitor center and an opportunity...More

We just did the drive through road on the way to the north rim.of the grand Canyon. It was worth the drive though. We didn't have to go out of the way or anything to see on the way to the grand Canyon but it...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".
