    The only dunes in CO of significance are the Great Sand Dunes, and those are closed to OHV.

    I've been invited to join a group headed to Little Sahara / Sand Mountain in Utah this spring. I'm seriously tempted.

    8 or 10 paddles on the 300? I think 10 is the way to go.

    When I lived in the San Luis Valley, we would get some good dunes in the spring on the county road! Walden is fun, White Wash Dunes are also good south of Green River Utah. Then the ones North of Rock Springs, Killpecker dunes are a blast!

    Killpecker has some good climbs and I have never had big crowds.

    Sure, but just riding the 'road' from Medano Pass to the park entrance gave me enough fill of sand riding! Not bad once you figure it out but there's a leap of faith (or frustration) when learning to ride a big bike on sand that soft and deep.
