Amargosa Big DuneAdd to my Trip Planner
Valley View Rd. & Hwy. 95
Amargosa Valley , 89020
These relatively undiscovered sand dunes offer an ideal recreation area for ATVs and dune buggies as well as adventurous sandboarders. These hills are a well-kept secret and mostly used by locals, but expect to find plenty of other off-roaders on the weekends. Located about 15 miles east of Beatty, the BLM managed Big Dunes cover 5 square miles and tower about 500’. Tread lightly! Big Dune is home to sensitive plants and animals.
Getting There: Amargosa Valley is 29 miles south of Beatty on U.S. 95. The dunes are located north of Amargosa Valley. Turn on Valley View Blvd. and drive 2 miles west to a dirt road leading to the dunes.
