Flame Arch
Flame Arch This arch is in a BLM Special Management Area, which requires a permit to hike the Coyote Buttes North Section. From Hwy 89 in southern Utah, turn south on FR1065 (House Rock Valley Rd.) for about 10 miles and park at the trailhead for Wire Pass (which leads to Buckskin Gulch). Pay your parking fee, make certain you have your permit, and hike west down the canyon. After 1.1 miles from the trailhead, look south for a short canyon with a sand dune on its west flank. This short canyon is just before the first set of narrows. Walk up this flank, observe the rounded ridge to the south, and hike south for another mile to the arch. Total hiking distance is approximately 2 miles one way. UTM 12S 40956E 4096509N WGS 84. For reference, the car Park UTM is about 12S 408723E 4097394N.
