Worth a visit

Might not be the beside idea to go in August, but it should certainly be visited. Lizards, snakes and the occasional roadrunners can be seen. Quiet and away from much traffic.

Try to schedule the trip in the early or late hours, when it's not too hot. But it's worth going through the trouble: fantastic hike.

The dunes are pretty and afford nice views of the surrounding area, but the real treat is discovering the tracks made by various animal and insect life across the dunes. We were able to identify 6 different types of tracks including sidewinder rattlesnake, hare, and beetles. To see these you must go in the morning before visitors trod over the... More

Classic desert sand dune system that you can walk on and play with. Just remember to take water with you and remember where your car was - you really don't want to explore too far and get lost or dehydrated!

The dunes were just down from where we were staying in Death Valley and we decided to visit them one evening after dinner, when it was slightly cooler. We had the added entertainment of a research team there collecting insects in traps they had set up, so what we expected to be a short visit lasted until well after sun... More

Long drive and the road has washouts but the dunes are really cool and it was worth the drive. It was so empty.

Nice sand dunes! Bring your shoes or burn your feet! It's hot in there so be careful....if you are lucky there might be a rattle snake waiting for you!

I rolled down the dunes yelling, "AS YOU WISH" and giggling like a little girl. The dunes were beautiful. They are not an easy hike up but they are worth it. Every-time you go they are different. Sometimes they even sing an eerie song. If you go on the dunes, be careful to protect your electronics.

This was a highlight of Death Valley. Hot sand dunes that were magnificent and huge. They were close and an easy walk from the car park to enjoy and get great pictures.There are warning signs of heat and snakes but we were out in the open and the view was beautiful.

My son and I (15 years old) went there to take some photos of the milky way behind the dudes, and the dunes themselves. They are spectacular - but the location is also spectacular. They are in a remote corner, down a very very bumpy "road". Average speed on the last 10-miles was about 10 mph. The drive in from... More
