Area Information

Managed by the BLM, this well-known central Nevada riding area covers approximately 4,795 acres. The area is mainly one huge wide open dune that has an equally large "Superbowl," with low-rolling sand dunes at its base and perimeter. The main dune system measures two miles long and a half mile wide, and a whopping 600 feet tall. Camping is allowed and there are some vault toilets, but no improvements or services are available. Vehicle owners are required to have registration for their vehicle from state of origin. Be careful to not harm any natural vegetation, and respect wilderness study area boundaries that have been established to protect the Sand Mountain Blue Butterfly. This means, stay on trails marked with green signs, and stay out of habitat restoration areas marked with red. BLM fees and rules are also in effect, see web-site for more information. Visitors are required to have a Nevada off-highway vehicle registration sticker, unless the vehicle is registered in another state and is not being used in Nevada for more than 15 days. More information about area regulations can be found at . This location was featured in our March/April 2006 issue.
