Wire Pass Trail Photos Vermillion Cliffs National Monument

Most people who make it out to the Wire Pass Trailhead in Vermillion Cliffs National Monument are heading directly for The Wave (advance permit is required, permit not available at trailhead). And while The Wave is definitely a place that everyone should add to their bucket list, that doesn’t mean that those going there should neglect the other wonderful hikes in the area.

One of these is the Wire Pass Trail which lead through a slot canyon and eventually intersects with the Buckskin Gulch slot canyon. The Wire Pass trail requires a permit ($6.00 per person which can be obtained at the trailhead) and is well worth the cost. Here are a few photos that I took on a recent hike on the Wire Pass Trail:

  1. I recently traversed the Wire Pass trail with my three sisters. It was an awesome hike. We were there the end of March and had perfect weather, blue skies. Vermilion Cliffs is a must-see, must-hike if you are able. The pictures tell it all. The slot canyons were amazing and we really like this hike better than Grand Canyon.
