Where are these Dunes?

Post by dskains »

Say from Las Vegas, how do you get to these dunes? I don't see them on a map.

Take the 15 north into Utah. Near Holden take the 50 north about 24 miles to the 6. Take the 6 north about 25 miles and it's on your left.

that looks like they would only be about 1 1/2 hours drive from Salt Lake City. Do they get pretty crowed since they are near some population?

Is there a "season" for those dunes?
Do you have to rejet for the altitude?

They do tend to get crowded early in the year but it is so hot now that it is not too bad.
Sure is worth it though. ENJOY!!

It was 98 yesterday. It will hit 110 in the summer and lots of days of 100 or above. Gets as low as -25 in January...

Lost third gear. Can't keep what you can't trust. Kind if like an old girlfriend, hahaha. The dunes here are best in the fall and spring like anywhere else. The sand is just like Glamis sand. Labor Day is the start of the season and King of the Hill kicks it off. Very crowded that day.

We stopped there on the way home from St. Anthony's dunes in Idaho last Saturday. Sand Mountain is HUGE!!! Here are a couple of pictures.


I have many more pics, just need time to load them. We didn't get to ride much there, not too many people around and I don't take a rail into dunes without others (that can tow me out...) but was able to go up SM and look around. About 700 feet up to the top... WOW!!!!!!!!

ARE YOU AWAKE YET????
