To say that spring of 2020 caught us all by surprise would be an understatement. Many of us were gearing up for races and prepping trips to Moab or Johnson Valley when “stay at home” orders went into effect. Luckily, this won’t last forever. Every day it looks like the social green flag is closer to dropping, and you better be ready when it does.

We’ve come up with a list of our 2020 Top Sand Dune OHV Areas that we found in the onX Offroad App. The App has over 400,000 miles of trails across the U.S. for every off-road vehicle, with details like trail descriptions, difficulty, duration, and photos. It’s only $30/year — a low-cost investment for trip planning and mapping. At less than a tank of gas, onX Offroad is the tool you need.
