White Pocket - Arizona
What to do if you have little time : White Pocket
White Pocket is a wonder of nature. This place, where white and red dominate, has tortured shapes and shaped like fish scales or tortoise shell. During our visit in September 2017, it was a storm. But the black sky does not ruin the landscape. On the contrary, the few rays of sun that were able to pierce gave a dramatic side and the water made the rock shine.
Unlike its neighbors The Wave or Coyote Buttes South, there is no need for a permit to come to White Pocket.
Tip : the access trail to White Pocket is very sandy, we advise you to go with a guide or to have a real 4W and, above all, know how to use it. For our part, in september 2017, we made the visit with Paria Outpost & Outfitters, specialists in the area. We combined White Pocket with CBS - Cottowood Cove section. In april 2022, we rented a Wrangler Rubicon to go there by our own means.
Once parked in the car park, just head straight for the white rocks and stroll as you please. For our part, in september 2017, we did 1,7 miles, which already gives a good overview of the site.
Access : between Page and Kanab on US 89, take the House Rock Valley Road for 20.1 miles. Turn left on Pine Tree Road for 6.1 miles. At a goose-hill (at this point there is a farmhouse) - N36 ° 50 '37.6 "W111 ° 57' 44.0", turn left for 9.6 miles to car park.
The accommodations, although abundant in Page, are however insufficient and very expensive. It becomes very difficult to find accommodation in Page. We strongly advise you to book in advance. Otherwise, you may not find accommodation or pay very expensive. We have tested :
