Route Description for Ibex Dunes Trail

The Ibex Sand Dunes Trail is not along a designated Death Valley National Park trail, and so care should be taken when attempting. We recommend bringing some sort of mapping tool with you to help aid you in your navigation throughout the route. It is also best to do the Ibex Sand Dunes Trail earlier in the morning in order to avoid the intense midday heat of the desert.

With your vehicle parked along Saratoga Springs Road, head south towards the Ibex Sand Dunes in the foreground. After traversing terrain with a steady incline, you will arrive at the dunes. Take your time and explore the breathtaking sights that the Ibex Dunes have to offer before backtracking your steps towards your waiting vehicle.
