LOCATION
Located very close to Stovepipe Wells and visible from the road. There are nearly 14-square-mile field of sand dunes.

SUGGESTIONS
The dunes can be explored by foot (park on the side of the road near the dunes sign). There is no trail, but that is part of the fun, you can create your own trail. Hiking the dunes is best in the morning or late afternoon as it is cooler. Also at these hours, the dunes are most photogenic. The shadows are longer because the sun is lower in the sky. Make sure you bring sun screen and water. It is easy to start walking and get further then you have expected, making it difficult to return.

IF YOU LIKE MY POST PLEASE GIVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK, THANKS
