Coyote Buttes is a section of the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), spanning extreme south-central Utah and north-central Arizona, south of US 89 halfway between Kanab, Utah and Page, Arizona.
It is divided into two areas: Coyote Buttes North and Coyote Buttes South.
Visiting either of the Coyote Buttes areas requires purchasing a hiking permit.
The Coyote Buttes area is an exposure of cross-bedded aeolian Jurassic Navajo Sandstone. The variable coloration of the sandstones is a result of various iron oxide pigments within the layers. A dinosaur trackway or trample surface is found in the area and provides evidence of a variety of dinosaurs. The area includes dramatic swirling erosional rock formations such as The Wave.
The Wave and Buckskin Gulch share the Wire Pass Trailhead on House Rock Valley Road.
