Dumont Dunes

March 2007

Dumont Dunes

Geocaching

While at Dumont, we decided to do a bit of geocaching. There are lots of caches hidden around the dunes (Dumont Cache Map).

Sperry Wash

The Sperry Wash Route provides a unique opportunity for users camped at Dumont who are willing to put dirt tires on their vehicle. Our Rhino lives with dirt tires, so this was a no brainer for us.  The Rhino proved to be the perfect vehicle for the trip up the wash.  Three of us fit comfortably, and the roof provided a bit of much needed shade. The temperatures for the weekend were record-setting (high 90's), so the Amargosa River provided some cooler activities for the kids.

Green sticker OHVs are allowed from Dumont Dunes Rd. to Western Talc Mine Rd. Sperry Wash Route travels up the Amargosa Canyon following the Amargosa River.

Vehicle use along this route is limited to designated trails. The route is bordered by congressionally designated Wilderness. If you want to keep this route open, do your part and stay on the trail.

There are two ways to get onto the trail from the dunes. The first is right past the river crossing, and the other is along the old T & T Railroad Grade.

Friends of Dumont Dunes Annual Cleanup

The cleanup was held on Saturday March 17, 2007. It was a hot weekend (about 95 degrees on the day of the cleanup), but that didn't stop hundreds of duners from joining in to help clean the dunes.
