Located just off the highway in the outskirts of Las Vegas, this open area is easy to get to. The terrain is actually more of a mix of hard pack and loose dry dirt on endless rolling hills, and there are not as many actual sand dunes as the name implies, but there are some (south). This is a good practice spot for Las Vegas locals or family day trips. Riders should use caution because the area has a lot of rider traffic on weekends, many novices, and countless jumps and intersecting trails. This area offers no services, no shade and is primarily a day use area. There is currently a Clark County proposal for a development project to create a designated OHV area at Nellis Dunes in order to accomodate the massive demand for off-road motorcycle recreation opportunities in the Las Vegas area. For more information visit the Clark County website.
