For real excitement, nothing beats a ride over the Silver Lake Sand Dunes. These shifting dunes promise a different terrain every time you visit them. But safety and common sense should top your list before you venture out.
All visitors must pay a Silver Lake State Park entrance fee to access the dunes. Tickets are issued by rangers for violation of park rules or unsafe driving practices. Once inside, make sure your vehicle has mounted to the front bumper a ten foot mast holding an international orange flag (sold at area businesses). With the rolling terrain, these flags can help divert a dangerous collision. You must be belted at all times, and drivers with their own vehicles should reduce the air pressure to ten pounds per tire.
