The forty acres on top of Silver Peak are actually private property. I'm the owner. You are welcome to visit at your own risk so long as you respect the remote wilderness setting and "leave no trace." That includes no camping and certainly no fire or firearms. The steep hike to Silver Peak is quite strenuous and potentially dangerous in inclement weather. The extent of the property is shown on the National Geographic map of the Mojave National Preserve.

Had a lot of fun running down the dunes. Great views

Cool to see! Hard to find without app!

This hike takes you through what is the densest Joshua Tree forest in the world. It's a great ... and easy ... walk and very lightly traveled. There is only a slight incline going out until you get to the end where you can do some rock scrambling up a ridge and see some astonishing vistas.

I second what others have said about these dunes being more impressive than the Mesquite Flat Dunes. Highly recommend visiting at sunset, if you can. The sunset hues and dune shadows will make the landscape (and your pics) that much more dramatic.

These dunes are more impressive than the Mesquite Flat Dunes in Death Valley. The climb to the top was brutal -- I recommend walking up the side of the tallest dune and following the ridge to the top rather than trying to walk straight up. The views at the top made the struggle worth it though, and it was really fun to run and slide down the dunes.

Being from the northeast, i really enjoyed the difference of hiking a desert trail. Started my hike around 10 am; after about 15 minutes on the trail, I ran into 2 hikers on their return. After that, I had the trail to myself the rest of the day. Joshua trees of course were a real treat to see. Also saw a blacktail jackrabbit and a whole bunch of small Desert night lizards. View from the top was worth the sweat!

This is a great little 2-3hr hike to the top of the dunes. They are close to 700ft tall, but something to really be enjoyed. The white sand, and blue desert skies make a beautiful setting for Photographers like myself.

Nice trail, not to far off the interstate. Was a good stop for a quick stroll, and still see something of that area. Didn't see anyone else either, though we did it in the afternoon at about 98 degrees.
