Northwest of Moab, the White Wash Sand Dunes are open to ATV riding and are quite scenic, with large cottonwood trees growing within them. Red cliffs to the east of the dunes provide a dramatic backdrop. White Wash, a popular travel route, borders three sides of the dunes. In addition to the dunes and White Wash, there are many miles of dirt roads in the area. On these roads, a rider can access Crystal Geyser and the Green River, as well as many other points. Riders should obtain detailed maps, as they are necessary to navigate this system of unmarked roads.
To reach the ATV riding at the White Wash Sand Dunes, drive 13 miles east of Green River on Interstate 70. Take Ranch Exit 175 to the south. This county road is known locally as the Floy Wash Road. (This exit is seven miles west of U.S. Highway 191.) From 1-70, continue southwest on the Floy Wash Road for 12 miles (be sure to bear right 4.5 miles from Interstate 70, and continue straight at 7.8 miles from Interstate 70). Go east (left) at 12.3 miles southwest of 1-70. You will drive by some oil production facilities. The Sand Dunes are visible from this intersection. There are two very large (natural) parking areas just west of the sand dunes. Larger vehicles may wish to consider parking at the area on the top of the hill.
There are no facilities of any type at White Wash Sand Dunes. Visitors must pack out all trash. There is no drinking water in the area - be sure you bring plenty of water and other supplies. If you camp, please use a previously used camping spot and keep a clean camp and fire ring.
Safety Flags: It is presently recommended, not required, to operate an OHV at the White Wash Sand Dunes with an orange or red safety flag visible at least eight (8) feet from the ground.
