Coyote Buttes is a section of the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. 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. Coyote Buttes, The Wave and Buckskin Gulch share the Wire Pass Trailhead in order to manage a visit.
