Climbed up a dune or two, away from the afternoon crowd. Views of the Sangre de Cristos in fall color behind the dunes were really something... one of these days I'd like to return to hike some peaks.

The best thing to do is to find the biggest, baddest dune, face straight doen, run as fast as you can and yell!!

Took a rest day after a failed attempt at Blanca Peak the day before. Romped all over the dunes after a morning thunderstorm blew through. I had a lot of fun but I guess the time to go with kids is in late spring when the snowmelt comes down off the mountains and makes a sort of beach near the dunes.

Went here on a weekend trip - camped on the Medano Pass Road and played in the Sand Dunes the next day. Far fewer regulations than most National Parks (dogs are allowed).

Such a crazy site to these dunes in the middle of COs high peaks. A neat side trip that I enjoyed tremendously!

Date Climbed: Oct 30, 2012


Unfortunately missed the peak of fall colors and the wind made climbing the dunes miserable. However, I enjoyed a nice walk up the canyon to Mosca Pass.

I've been here twice and just love it. The second time we went out hiking for several hours amongst the dunes. Would love to go back and do it again!

I've gone down for skiing a few times, in 2010 skied over 7000 vert in a day, last year after my vertical mile got chased off by thunderstorms.

Camped a few days here on a bike trip across the Rockies. Hands down one of the most unique and amazing places in Colorado!

MissingHuskyFun Place  Sucess!


Great place to take the kids, camp, play in the water, hike, go 4-wheelin' & visit hot springs. Avoid July/August because of insane amounts mosquitos. In May the river runs through the bottom of the Dunes and makes it a water wonderland in the middle of the desert - pretty neat. Easy access to great hikes & climbs from here, too. Hike north on foot out of Park to access old ghost town of Liberty, Cottonwood & more...
