From the Paria Ranger Station, drive west on US 89 for approximately 4.8 miles. Turn left on House Rock valley Road, an unpaved road to the south. The trailhead (Wire Pass) is 8.6 miles down this road. To enter this area, a permit (very difficult to get) must be acquired at the Paria Ranger Station.
I've been to the Wave three times and have emerged on each occasion drained by the aesthetic overload. In addition to the Wave itself, there is an unbelievable visual feast to be discovered in the North Coyote Buttes.
Located within the north unit of the Coyote Buttes Special Management Area, "the Wave" is justifiably embraced as a visual shrine by photographers from all over the world. Accessed by a trail-less route through the slickrock desert, the Wave is an astonishing example of desert beauty.
