I've ridden at Red Sands since the early '80s. It was always risky, but people back then were better riders and more concerned with safety. It has just gotten worse over the years.

Great outdoor fun for the location. Make sure you have 4 wheel drive. We use our Jeep. Some people are quick to help if you get stuck, or you may need protection from others. Just sayin. All in all nice place to become one with a beer and the desert.
