Kanab Field Office

Bureau of Land Management, Utah.

The Kanab Field Office, managed within the Paria River District, is located in Utah’s Kane County, near the Utah-Arizona border, Lake Powell, and Arizona's Grand Canyon. East of Kanab are the Vermilion Cliffs that run north through open country. The Paria River cuts through the Vermilion Cliffs traveling through the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Area on the Utah-Arizona border. Backpackers who visit this area hike through narrow, twisting canyons of the Paria River. Off road enthusiasts frequent the Coral Pink Sand Dunes to capitalize on this unparalleled recreation opportunity. Landscapes in this area differ from other areas as the abundance of sandy soils and red rock formations intermingle with several archeological treasures to provide some unique sight-seeing and day hiking opportunities. Sage brush, grass, and pinyon juniper ecosystems intermingle with small pockets of ponderosa pine trees, providing for vast acres of world class mule deer habitat and trophy animals that spend their summer months thriving on the Paunsaugunt Management Area.
