Guided Hiking Tours

Paria Outpost has been providing guided photography, scenic, adventure, and hiking tours in the Vermilion Cliffs and Grand Staircase National Monuments for 19 years. This is a vast and intensely diverse landscape of almost a million and a half acres, containing some of the most colorful and picturesquely shaped formations on the planet. Though impossible to explore in a lifetime, we have seen enough of it to offer you exceptional photo opportunities in iconic sites as well as not so well known locations.


North Coyote Buttes: Guided hiking Tour

Price:  $175 per person

Permit Required - This is one of the most well known photography tours and well worth a six mile hike through deep sand, uneven slopes and a couple of big hills, there is actually much more than just The Wave to see in the North Coyote Buttes. “The Second Wave”, The Boneyard, Sand Cove and The Toprock are all worth visiting as well as The Wave. We will go as far as you want and show as much as we can in a day.  more info

Note: The North Coyote Buttes requires a special permit from the B.L.M. You must obtain your own permit before reserving with us for this area.

South Coyote Buttes: Guided hiking Tour

Price:  $175 per person

Permit Required - Schedule a full day tour to hike about six miles around Cottonwood Cove and see some of the most fantastic colorful spots on the planet. Spend a full day in Paw Hole and hike five miles to see the best of the best. Visit the lesser known areas of Cottonwood Cove with the Cottonwood Cove Further Tour and hike about seven miles.  more info

Note: Both the South Coyote Buttes areas require the same permit from the B.L.M. In most cases you must secure your own permit. Paria Outfitters can sometimes get South Coyote Butte permits the day before but there is no guarantee.

White pocket: Guided hiking Tour

Price:  $175 per person

No Permit Required - This is an easy five minute walk to a one mile by one and a half mile area of intense swirls and brain rocks, one of the most striking areas to visit. Paria Outfitters can do a full-day tour here for more serious photographers as well as combining White Pocket with the Buckskin Gulch/Wire Pass slot canyons as well as The South Coyote Buttes areas.  more info

Vermilion Cliffs National Monument: Guided hiking Tour

Price:  $175 per person

No Permit Required - The Vermilion Cliffs National Monument is a three hundred thousand-plus acre plateau bordered by thousand foot cliffs and containing dozens of valleys, buttes and mesas covered with towers, teepees, spires and brain rocks. Deep sand keeps this Monument largely unexplored and unvisited. if you attempt it on your own be sure to bring a high-clearance 4-wheel drive vehicle as well as a shovel, a jack, some flat boards and plenty of water. Cell phone coverage is spotty.  more info


Shuttle Service - The shuttle is the way to go if you are doing a one-way trip. You can leave your car at the end of the hike so it will be waiting for you when you're finished. Cost is for up to four people with gear. Each additional person is $25 each. If you have more than six people, another vehicle is needed and will cost the full amount. This is about five hours round trip.  more info
