Trail Information


The North Sand Dunes Road is one of the many enjoyable 4WD trails in the Walden, CO area. The trail offers some great views of the North Park valley and the sandy dunes below. The area is popular with OHV and 4X4 enthusiasts alike. The road climbs from the valley floor into the Route National Forest. Although the beginning can be intimidating because of the openness during the assent, the route is easily navigated by a stock equipped 4x4 vehicle. Both experienced and novice off-roaders will enjoy this ride.

Descended from the mountains to the dunes for the 4th. Due to some washout right at the start of this trail after the water crossing it is probably closer to a 4 in difficulty. If running it in reverse like we did the three rating still fits.

Descended into the Sand Hills area via this trail. Awesome views and pretty easy, just watch your angles on the switchbacks.

The Mullen Fire near Fox Park, WY more than doubled in size today to over 80k acres. This prompted forest closures along the Colorado / Wyoming border.

Trail was nice and saw only a few other users while we were on it. No other vehicles just OHVs using the trail. Beautiful views near the top and a fun ride.
