Riding Description

There are six riding area’s.  Everyone must have a whip flag on there riding vehicle, they will give you a ticket.  This is so when you go over a sand dune someone can at least see your flag.

Sand Mountain is about 700 feet high and provides people wanting to climb the ability to see how high they can get in the shortest amount of time.  The area around the base of the mountain is where a lot of people congregate.

White Sands area which is at the north end of the sand dunes provides many small riding bowls and smaller dunes to travel on.  This area is great for beginners and families wanting to ride around some smaller dunes. 

Black Mountain is on the east side of the sand dunes and has many trails up and around the mountain.

Sand dunes south of Black Mountain and north of Sand Mountain provide some small dunes and a place to get away from the crowds.

On the south side of Sand Mountain are many deeper dunes that range in size from 50 to 100 feet. High.  To get to there you will have to go up and over Sand Mountain, which is easiest on the east side.

West of Sand Mountain there are some dunes and trails that are fun to play on and get away from the crowds.

This sand pile is 60,000 acres and it is moving 5 to 9 feet a year.  It is about 12 miles long and 10 miles wide.

Please stay out of the Rockwell Nature area which is on the northwest corner of the sand dunes.  As a Side note, SUWA also calls the whole area the Rockwell Sand Dunes and has it in there Redrock Wilderness bill sponsored by a Senator from Illinois Big Dick Durbin (D-IL) and a House of Representative woman from New York Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) which will close the whole area down. To ATV’s.  Of the entire over 100 co-sponsors to this bill all are Demercates except for two.  Something to think about when you vote.

Winter Riding

This is a fun place to ride in the winter and get rid of the winter blues.  It is about 10 degrees warmer here than in Salt Lake Valley.  If the Salt lake valley is under an inversion then it is almost 20 degrees warmer and no inversion.
