Coral Pink Sand Dunes

The Coral Pink Sand Dunes are known as ATV Central! Bring your 4X4's, your ATVs, your dirt bikes, your dune buggies and your campers. The park is over 3,700 acres with 2,000 acres of sand to ride, with the exception of a small section where sand machines are not allowed. The hundreds of miles of quality trails with fantastic views attract off-highway vehicle users. There are sandy dunes, competition hills and some more difficult trail rides in the Moquith Mountain area. Most riders drive straight to the "Sand Highway." You will find this track along the eastern edge of the dunes. Look for a narrow canyon with tracks leading to it. OHV riders rave about the turns and twists on this one way track.
