Hike to the White Pocket

4 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Paria Plateau Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by David Kingham

The twisting and turning rocks of White Pocket are amazing. There is a variety of colors to make it a photographers paradise. Hardly any people which makes it a must for photographers. 4 mile roundtrip hike.

White Pocket is extremely difficult to access due to the road leading to it. There are sections with very deep, soft sand going uphill! You must have a high clearance 4WD vehicle and air down your tires to have any hope of making it here. Do not take this lightly, a tow bill will cost you a minimum of $1,000. When you reach the trailhead, it is short hike into the White Pocket to the west, an easy hike even with uneven terrain through the rock. There is no permit or fee required due to the remoteness of the area. If there has been rain recently, do not attempt this, the House Rock Valley Road is clay and turns into an epic disaster when wet.

Please visit the Paria Contact Station which is located south of Highway 89 between mile post 21 and 22, between Kanab and Page, Arizona for directions and current conditions.

Endless photographic opportunities

You could spend over a week here photographing all the amazing sunrise/sunset compositions.

Some of the best night skies in Utah

A great location for night photography. Amazing rock formations that look great during sunset. A 4WD with high clearance is a must in order to get to this location

I've always wanted to go here. Looks amazing!
