| In 1984, congress created the Paria Canyon - Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Area, Paria Canyon is part of this area. In 1996, almost two-million acres of Southern Utah land was designated as the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Four years later, bordering Arizona land was designated as the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument.
Paria Canyon contains the spectacular Coyote Buttes Special Management Area. The notorious sandstone buttes sit at the bottom of Utah's Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and the upper section of Arizona's Paria Canyon-Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness.
