Description

Sand Mountain was designated as an Open OHV Area in the 1999 St. George Field Office Resource Management Plan. Adjacent to the popular Sand Hollow State Park, the area provides lots of open riding opportunities on the dunes, and miles of technical trails suitable for full-size 4x4’s. The views from on top provide a 360degree panorama of outstanding views, including downtown St. George, the Hurricane Cliffs, the Arizona Strip, the 10,000 foot Pine Valley Mountains, and the Red Cliffs National Conservation Area. The maximum elevation is approximately 4,000 feet.

When you’re on Sand Mountain, you may encounter Park Rangers from adjacent Sand Hollow State Park. The BLM has an agreement with the Park that includes having the Park Rangers patrol the dunes. When operating on sand dunes a red or orange safety flag attached to the vehicle, at least 8 feet above the surface of level ground, is required.

Difficulty: All difficulty levels can be found on Sand Mountain due to several technical sections of slickrock sandstone.

Trailheads: There are three ways to access Sand Mountain. The first is through Sand Hollow State Park. Just enter the Park and drive your ATV through the “tunnel” and you’ll be playing on the dunes within minutes. Note: you must pay the Sand Hollow State Park entrance fee to use this option.

The second access is through the town of Washington, Utah. From Interstate 15, take Exit 10 and turn left on Telegraph, then right on Washington Field Road, then left on Washington Dam Road. Follow Washington Dam road until it turns to dirt. Drive up and over the only hill and at the bottom; you’ll be at the Washington Dam Trailhead. Look for the “Adopted by the Utah 4x4 Club” signs. Turn right and look for the steep, technical road that leads up onto the dunes. This access is free.

The third access is through the town of Hurricane, Utah. From Interstate 15, take exit 16 to Hurricane City. Turn right onto 700 West, and take another right onto 2060 South. The road turns to gravel. Travel 2.2 miles and turn right where the road forks onto Warner Valley road (there will be a sign). Follow this road up onto the dunes. This access is free.

Miles: Not applicable because the area is open to cross-country travel.
