Pages 21 and 22 of the NPS link below covers Coyote Gulch. According the start of the link it states day hikes do not require a back country permit, but if planning to be overnight it requires a back country permit. Some good information on this and other hikes off the Escalante/Hole-in-the-Rock road.
