Great Sand Dunes
Great Sand Dunes National Park encompasses a 39-square-mile area of sandy dunes on the eastern edge of the San Luis Valley. Towering nearly 750 feet above the valley floor, these swells of sand are considered the tallest dunes in North America. For hikers of all ages, the Great Sand Dunes offer an enormous sandbox in which to explore. Because these sands are constantly shifting, no actual trails exist within the dunes. There is, however, a 1.5-mile route that climbs to one of the high points in the dunes.
