Hero: Sand Dune Access to Plan B
small-sr Icon

This is a sand dune route connecting Sand Dune Way and Razzle Dazzle, providing access to the Plan B trail. The safest path through the dunes changes on a regular basis due to wind-shifting sand. The extremely soft sand requires aired-down tires. Driving across a sand dune can be challenging and requires specific techniques to navigate safely. Keep a steady pace and avoid sudden acceleration of braking. Look for the path of least resistance and follow existing tire tracks, or choose a route that seems less steep or more compacted by other vehicles. Use gentle steering movements to maintain control, and if sliding sideways, turn into the slide. When ascending or descending a dune, be sure to always maintain a 90-degree angle to the dune's slope to avoid sliding sideways. Additionally, be cautious of steep dropoffs that can quickly high-center your vehicle.

About Sand Mountain

Sand Mountain is an extremely unique parcel of public land. Designated as an Open OHV Area, riders are free to make their own trails. Due to this, many of the long-established named trail routes have several variations that can take easier or more challenging routes through the intended trail. The GPX track for this trail helps you navigate the area, but various lines, bypasses, and additional obstacles may exist along the way. Riders are encouraged to stay on existing trails and not unnecessarily drive over or destroy vegetation.


Riding on Sand Mountain is entirely free. However, there are multiple entry/exit points for the area, including "the tunnel," which connects Sand Hollow State Park to the open OHV area. Any entry into the boundaries of Sand Hollow State Park requires a Utah State Park Pass.


When operating on Sand Mountain, users must attach an orange or red safety flag to the vehicle, rising at least 8 feet off the ground.
