Sand Mountain was designated as an Open OHV Area in the 1999 St. George Field Office Resource Management Plan. Adjacent to the popular Sand Hollow State Park, the area provides lots of open riding opportunities on the dunes, and miles of technical trails suitable for full-size 4x4’s. The views from on top provide a 360degree panorama of outstanding views, including downtown St. George, the Hurricane Cliffs, the Arizona Strip, the 10,000 foot Pine Valley Mountains, and theRed Cliffs National Conservation Area. The maximum elevation is approximately 4,000 feet.
When you’re on Sand Mountain, you may encounter Park Rangers from adjacent Sand Hollow State Park. The BLM has an agreement with the Park that includes having the Park Rangers patrol the dunes. When operating on sand dunes a red or orange safety flag attached to the vehicle, at least 8 feet above the surface of level ground, is required.
