Overview

Juniper Dunes provides 3,920 acres of OHV “Open” Area. Loose sand riding opportunities abound, primarily along trails through sagebrush habitat. Riders also enjoy sections of open dunes, and primitive road segments.

Since the early 1960s, Juniper Dunes has been a popular regional outdoor recreation area. Its current 19,600 acres is split into three adjoining area designations, each having its own use regulations: the Juniper Dunes Wilderness (designated by Congress in 1984), an Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), and an OHV “Open” Area. Currently, more than 30,000 people visit Juniper Dunes annually, most of them coming for OHV recreation.
