Olancha Dunes

AKA: Owens Dry Lake, Owens Valley, Olancha, Ridgecrest Resource Area

Summary


Olancha dune is a good place to learn how to ride the sand. There is only one main dune, and it's very small, but there is one section of rolling sand with vegetation. The surrounding mountains have some desert trails and fire roads but the OHV area is mostly flat. The main entrance is smooth but has a couple deep sand washes so a 4x4 is recommended if you want to drive all the way in to the dune.
