Vermilion Cliffs National Monument
Paria Canyon/Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness
Coyote Buttes Permit Area - Pack It In, Pack It Out

Why do I have to pack out my trash?

Keep the wilderness wild and pack out all your trash. Food scraps should be packed out. Biodegradable materials, such as banana peels, orange rinds, or coffee grounds may seem natural enough, but will not disintegrate in this climate. Pack them out.

What about toilet paper?

Burning or burying toilet paper is not permitted. Please practice Leave No Trace outdoor ethics and help us protect this pristine environment -- pack out all toilet paper and dispose of it properly. Don't hide, bury, or leave behind toilet paper! Toilet paper can be easily folded, dropped into a sealable sandwich bag, and discretely packed out. This will help us preserve the pristine quality of these canyons.
