WHITE POCKET TOURS
This area of the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument is a favorite for our guides. The palette of colors and variety of sandstone formations beckon photographers and sightseers to our White Pocket tours.
The off-road section of the tour begins in Houserock Valley, and for some spots we'll be in 4 wheel drive. Though our suburban is exceedingly comfortable, be aware that the ride might get a bit rough - especially after a storm. Keep your eyes to the skies- maybe you'll witness a rare California Condor.
Our time in the White Pocket area will leave you pondering how the hand of nature created such a place. A few lone trees burst from abstract sandstone formations, where everyone sees something different. Do the rocks resemble a turtle shell? A brain? Have we landed on another planet entirely?
Come find out.
Availability: We can take groups of up to 10 people. We are in no hurry to escape back to society from this wonderful location: so we'll go at your pace, do what you would like, and showcase to you our favorite photo opportunities.
Overnight camping is also available. Contact us for more information.
The Drive: 50 miles paved highway- taking approximately 1 hour +25 miles unpaved - taking approximately 1.5 hours. The tour takes a total 4-5 hours of driving, and the drive is one of the great elements of the adventure. We'll pick up some coffee together, and set out down Highway 89A on a winding, scenic journey through the Kaibab National Forest. The views change dramatically on the drop out of the forest and down into Marble Canyon- a moment sure to take your breath away.
Hike Distance: 2-3 miles
Hike Difficulty: Easy- uneven rocks and small sections of sand. The hike typically takes between 2 and 4 hours: depending on your group's pace, comfort, and safety. We exercise caution during the summer months, and during rain storms.
Permits: There are no day permits required in the White Pocket area at this time. Camping permits are with the guide.

"My friend and I opted to take the White Pocket tour after booking for South Coyote Buttes. We were not disappointed!! We had a beautiful day and Jeff was awesome. He did not rush us and made sure we saw all the best views. He's also very knowledgeable about the area and provided a lot of fun tidbits of information. We would highly recommend American West Scenic Adventures!"
