Access to the riding areas

There are TWO access roads. The main area is accessed from Dumont Dunes Road (see map below--click on the map for a large image). This is a dirt road which follows and crosses the Amargosa River (deep sand) leading to the main field of large dunes. Dumont Dunes Road is one mile north of the "Little Dunes" staging area. This smaller dune area is also a part of the Dumont Dunes OHV Area.
