Hero: Paw Hole
small-sr Icon
Paw Hole is a deep sand trail from House Rock Road to the geologically stunning White Pocket. It is the northern route and the more technical route to White Pocket. It is also more scenic! This route also passes sights like the Paw Hole Teepees and Poverty Flat Ranch. It is also the access road to the Cottonwood Teepees trailhead. This trail requires 4WD because of the deep sand. There isn't any camping along this route. A permit is required to hike into Coyote Buttes South, the area with the teepee-shaped rock formation just north of Paw Hole. A permit is not necessary to drive Paw Hole or to explore White Pocket.
