  • Simply awesome. We went just before sunset and returned at dusk, but many people stayed until after dark. It is possible to do it all barefoot - really is all sand. Avoid mid day heat and windy...

  • The silence is deafening after 43 miles of brain rattling bad "road"!
  • Very interesting dunes. Approximately 700ft to the top. Apparently when the humidity is low enough the dunes can create a booming noise when sand is knocked off the sides. It does take a while to get here, about two hours from Furnace Creek and a large part of that is over a dirt road that requires a high clearance vehicle.
