great trail for a good 5 mile hike, up and down through the dunes. just make sure to bring lots of water it's very dry. All in all if your looking for a desert hike then this is the one for you not only in a desert but also walking through where the first atomic bomb was dropped.

Really fun! We did it in mid February and the weather was perfect (55 and sunny). Our dog loved it too! We're in pretty good hiking shape and it took us a little under two hours to complete (clockwise) with three doggy water breaks. Some of the markers were blown down, so we had to leap frog a few times to find the markers, but could do so safely. We didn't find it to be terribly hard, but you do have to climb up and down a few dozen dunes.

Take all of the warning signs seriously. Do not hike when it is really warm. Bring lots of water. Wear sunglasses. If you cant see the next marker turn back. Enjoy the experience. It is truely unique.

Really liked the sign illustrating different animal tracks in the sand, we were able to identify many tracks later while exploring on our own. Avoid touching the railing, you'll shock yourself (static).

This hike is awesome without small children. I took my 6 and 3 year old and the eye year old made the hike last a lot longer than I wanted. I'm gonna a come back sometime sans children!

Me and my daughter hike this, some parts a little hard but overall moderate.
