Out of the way place to visit, but make the effort. It really lives up to the guide books. For light and color, this is priceless

By the few reviews written on this monument I must assume that most people miss this monument. It deserves a lot more attention. There Are many places to stop for photography or just admire these visually stunning cliffs. Miles and miles of color and massive natural structures make for an awe inspiring experience

My experience was from driving along the highway, marveling at the constantly changing scenery, stopping to take photos...didn't have time for hiking, but that would've been fantastic

Group of 4 of us won the lottery for permits to visit 'The Wave'. We booked Kyle from Circle Tours. He gave us a great whole day out, 7 hours hiking on a long way round to the wave, seeing lots of cool stuff like all the lace rock and a hollowed out cove of amazing shapes, colours and sand... More

We drove for miles and miles on route12 and highway 89. It was very scenic but not as wonderful as I expected it to be. The cliffs and the mountains become very redundant the more you see them.

We had a guide through White Pockets with Kyle the owner of Circle tours (vermilioncliffs.net) and it was great. Excellent photo opps and Kyle took you to the best spots for the nest shots being a photographer himself. It is reportedly not the most strenuous hike but there is some scrambling if you want to get tho the highest points.... More

In the afternoon light the cliffs are vermillion as promised. A great view going in either direction, west to the north rim, or east to Lee's Ferry. Some small and friendly motels and restaurants make a stay memorable.

To get a sense of the area, I did two treks with Kyle Walker in May '13. It was nicely paced, interesting and I got some good photography. I discovered that Kyle is an avid traveler and has been round the world. He has spent much time in many countries and has interesting observations. Being a traveler himself he understands... More

Used local guide to take us, Kyle Walker. An amazing land formation, well worth the trouble to get there. Few would find it without a guide. Unfortunately guide added two people to tour staying at north rim, due to road closure we had to drive an extra hour..got back at 11:00p.m. Found these arrangements very inconsiderate.

Drove from Page to the Lees Ferry side of Vermilion Cliffs. What can I say... Under direct sunlight they seem to sparkle with every hue you can imagine from stone. Excellent for photographing or just marvelling at. The only con is that at the moment you have to detour as the road is closed adding a lot of time to... More
