The Wave GPS Track

Paria Canyon-Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness, Arizona

The Wave is one of the most photographed rock formations in the world, and it hides in a remote area of northern Arizona. Hikers often become lost looking for it, so be sure you bring a map or use a GPS with this track to locate it. Note that a permit is required to hike to it; they are in short supply and most people who get them apply four months in advance.
