The Wave lies in the northern section of the
Coyote Buttes area lying within the boundary
of the "Paria Canyon Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness
Area" which spans the Utah-Arizona border.
The area was virtually unknown until just a few
years ago when a German magazine published
an article. Since then it has seen such increasing
visitation that the Bureau of Land Management
found it necessary to preserve the fragile formation
by requiring permits and limiting the number of
visitors to 20 per day.
For information and to
obtain permits, visit this Arizona BLM Website.
