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.

On December 24, 1997, North Coyote Buttes and South Coyote Buttes, under the direction of the BLM, were mandated limits of 20 people per day in North Coyote Buttes and 10 per day in South Coyote Buttes. South Coyote Buttes will be changing to 20 people per day in May 2006. Although this seems harsh, remember that this is a small section of land in a popular wilderness area and if more were to visit, the pristine, remote experience would be lost.

Vermillion Cliffs National Monument is the administration entity for Paria Canyon Wilderness which includes Wire Pass, Buckskin Gulch, North and South Coyote Buttes special permit areas and the Paria River from Highway 89 South. Paria Canyon Wilderness is bordered on the east by the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area: north and west of the state line (Az-Ut) bordered by the GSENM.
