Know Before You Go
Any off-road travel beyond the north pole out into the desert is prohibited! The area surrounding the dunes is closed to off-road use. Even if you find tracks leading out to other areas of the desert, do not follow them. Those trails are out of bounds and you will be fined for riding out there.
Cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management on this matter will make life easier for everyone. Be a responsible duner and only ride in allowed areas. At a decent pace, it is about a 10-to-15 minute ride from the camp area. Kids love the North Pole, but it is a rather long ride for small quads. On a holiday weekend, you can usually find quite the crowd out there
