Trail Overview

This trail is sandy and offers access to the western side of the St. Anthony Sand Dunes Open Riding area. The western side has really big sand dunes. The route is heavily whooped and bumpy from cattle traffic. There are quite a few cattle out here grazing in this area, so use caution when traveling. At the end of the trail, just before reaching the dunes, is a livestock gate. Keep it closed. There's a cheater bar attached to assist. A few offshoots trails to the east also offer access to the dunes. The sand is quite soft, and there are occasional rock gardens to watch out for. Airing down before attempting this trail is a must to avoid getting stuck in the sand. Keep your momentum for the entire trail aside from the rock gardens. No good dispersed camping was noticed in this area. There was one big sandy area at the beginning of the trail that could possibly be used to disperse camp, but there was no fire ring. Verizon LTE fades in and out on this trail but has one bar the entire time.

Difficulty

There are lots of deep soft sand in the entire trail. Random rock gardens to navigate while keeping momentum in the sand. A couple of small sandy hill climbs.
