Daily permits
If you are unsuccessful in getting an “Advanced permit” for Coyote Buttes North, and are in the Southern Utah / Northern Arizona area. Starting on March 15, 2022 you can apply for the daily lottery at https://www.recreation.gov/permits/4251909 two days in advance of your desired entry date. There is a $9 fee to try for a permit. You can only apply via your phone or connected mobile device (e.g. tablet). You cannot apply via a desktop computer. The GPS on your phone must be on. You must be within a “geofenced” area in Northern Arizona/Southern Utah to apply. The area includes the towns of Kanab, Page, Big Water, Fredonia, Glendale, and Jacob Lake among others.

The procedure to apply for a daily permit is as follows:
Applications for the Daily Lottery must be submitted from within the designated geofence, according to the following schedule.
Day 1 – Application: Apply between 6 AM and 6 PM two days ahead of the desired entry date on recreation.gov. Lottery results are sent out at 7:15 PM that evening. A window will open to accept winning lottery applications.
Day 2 – Safety Briefing: Successful applicants must accept the permit and pay fees by 8 AM Utah time and be onsite at a permit pickup location at 8:30 AM local time for a safety briefing. Local time may be different between pickup locations. During Daylight Savings, 9:30 in Utah is 8:30 in Arizona (except the Navajo Nation). There are two permit pickup locations, one in Page and one in Kanab. To pick up your permit in Kanab go to The Kanab Center, 20 N 100 E, Kanab, UT 84741. To pickup your permit in Page, go to Page-Lake Powell HUB, 48 S Lake Powell Blvd, Page, AZ 86040.
Day 3 – Permit date: Permit-holders have the day to explore Coyote Buttes North.

The new “Daily Permit” system is more user-friendly than the old walk-in lottery. You no longer need to be present in Kanab at 9:00 AM the day before you wish to hike to The Wave. You only need to be in the general area of Page and Kanab. You can go out for an early morning photoshoot or sleep-in if you wish. There is one downside, the $9 per group fee to enter the lottery. the walk-in lottery was free.

Additional information about permits can be found on Coyote Buttes permits webpage.

White Pockets is also a fabulous place to hike but you also need reservations and a permit. There are usually fewer people trying to get out there as it is a long 4 wheel drive with deep sand. There are many other places to explore and amazing slot canyons.
