I made it all the way to the top. It took me around 1 hour and 45 minutes, its so hard to walk in sand. but it worth the walk. once you get to the top you will see a beautiful view and its a beautiful silent. I went in November so it was just me.

Worth it to stop there and check out the dunes when in the Mojave Preserve. Pretty cool spot and worth a photo op. Similar to the Dunes in Death Valley.

This is a large sand dune field in the Mojave Desert. It is a little off the beaten path, but well worth the trip if you are a nature buff.

Great and nice place outside of main routes. When driving I-40 to Los Angeles or Needles turn to Kelso and the dunes are before town. Very unique place.

I came here for a quick look on the way to Vegas and overall I thought the Dunes were impressive but not stunning. Just to note there is no fuel station anywhere near the dunes so be careful.
