Oddly reminiscent of visiting a beach except without the water. You won't find a trail, but you can walk anywhere. Due to its location you will find others, just try to stick relatively close to the crowd so you don't get lost.

Get there a little early, hike out to a deserted (get it?) dune, and plunk down for a breathtaking sunset. You won't regret the sand in your shorts.

The parking for this was very busy in April. We took the next road to the left, drove a distance to the well and walked to the dunes. There is a small parking area there and it was uncrowded to visit this way.

Nice sand dunes but people walking all over them spoils the beauty of the dunes. I tried going deep inside but there were footprints everywhere....they reduce on the inside but still pretty bad. Worth a visit though.

Seriously, if your up to it, do the mile hike/slog to the top of the highest dune! It's so worth it! When you can, try to stick to the ridges to avoid unnecessary ups and downs. If you go in the morning or evening there...More

These dunes are just outside of Stovepipe Wells, so they're a perfect jumping off point for a day of adventure. I decided to do a sunrise here and wasn't disappointed. It was very relaxing and I got some awesome pictures. Don't just look at the...More

We planned to spend a few hours here, and only did about an hour. We brought sleds for the kids and lots of water and snacks to sit under a tree while the kids sledded off the dunes. It was hard work!! After about an...More

Yes, there is a pullout and small parking lot adjacent to the dunes. You can walk out as far as you'd like or take pictures from the car. 4wheel drive is not needed.
