If you live near Las Vegas and want to catch some big air or just cruise through the bushes over some rolling dunes, you would probably enjoy this place. The crushed grains of quartz and feldspar rock make these dunes firm and easier to navigate without a paddle tire. With lots of small washes and large areas of dispersed vegetation surrounding the area, it’s kind of a fun place to set up camp, carve out a little sand track for the kids, let the dog run, and maybe kick back for a BBQ.
The crowds are small (or none) compared to the well known meccas of California like Dumont or Glamis. This place is much smaller, and more similar in size to Sand Mountain in northern Nevada, but without the crowds and fewer regulations. The mountain views are really great, especially from the top of the dunes, and the access road is flat and easy. Bring your own shade and water.
