know of any good sand riding?

Recommended Posts

Me and a few buddies are making a trip to the sand dunes this weekend. Not sure exactly which dunes yet, I was wondering if anyone had any good advice on some good dunes in the california or oregon. Last year about this time we made a trip to Pismo Beach(San Luis Obispo) and we had a great time. We may just go there again this year but we would really like to try somewhere new. I hear there is really good sand in Oregon. If anyone has any suggestions then hook me up! Also if anyone wants to come and meet up with us to ride we feel free. We should be there from saturday till monday(oct 16-18).

Glamis is fantastic... but a real long drive for you ....

Dumont dunes is cool too, some dunes, some desert, kinda the best of both worlds...

i don't know about oregon but my guess would be going back to pismo that would be the closest or something in nevada hope this helps

I will second Sand Mountain, the biggest damn sand dune in the desert. Giant sand dunes, killer sand hill climbs and the mixing bowl at the top is a blast. :cry:

Thanks for all the input guys, we have narrowed it down to either pismo or oregon. Not going to sand mountain because it will be a little too cold at night (4000 feet elevation). I heard some really good things about the oregon dunes, heard they were huge. I was at pismo a year ago and that was my first time, since then they have closed off a ton of land and you can no longer go down to the water anymore. I was only there once but I cant imagine not being able to go down to the water, and it was sorta small to begin with so its gotta be way smaller now. That really sucks but I knew it was only a matter of time with California being the way it is with all of its tree-huggers. So all that makes me want to go to oregon instead. I will let you all know what happens and I will post pics from wherever we end up going.
