The Three Dune Challenge or variations of it like this one are the best way in the area to train for hikes like Kilimanjaro, Peru’s Salkantay Trail, hikes in the Rockies, etc. 6 times around gives you almost 1800’ of elevation in a 10-mile hike, with the added challenge of the sand action. It’s a good CV and leg workout!

Pretty fun challenge trekking up all 3. Moderate challenge, nothing more than 200ft above lake level. 35-45 degree incline for each of them. Mt Tom has a wooden staircase up either side; it is the tallest and steepest of the 3.
