Are these Dunes closed during the winter?

Post by dburton »

We go up to Page Arizona often in the spring and summer. Does anyone know if the Coral Pink sand dunes are open and rideable in the spring.

Trying to plan a vacation.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey Dee, these dunes are great for quads, not too good for rails (not enough open area for us) to ride.

We went in 1996 in July... it was HOT!!!! :oops: and its about 6000 feet there which made everything get HOT too... I would say spring and fall are the best times, but it can snow there too...

If you go, make sure to see the Rangers collection of sand samples from around the world,,, VERY 8)

I have been there several times over the past 15 years. I am pretty sure the state park and the dunes are open all year, but as previously mentioned, it gets fairly cold and snows there in the winter. If you're planning a spring trip, I'd say that by April, it should be nice and comfortable enough to enjoy the dunes. Temperatures would likely be in the 60s in the day and in the high 30s to 40s at night. I still think the best time to visit is during the summer months, when its too hot to visit Glamis. Oh sure, it too can get hot at times at Coral Pink, but it cools off nicely at night and in July - Sept, you're often treated to some awesome thunderstorms.

Enjoy your visit, Jerry

Wow,

Thank you very much. This is very helpful. We hang out at Buttercup and Gordons Well in the winter, this looks like a fun place to go after that. Thanks for the tip on the carb. I ran into that problem going up to look for Christmas Trees last week in Heber!

Thanks again

Dee
