Imperial Sand Dunes or Glamis – California
In southern California near the Mexican border, you can find the Imperial Sand Dunes. If you’re looking for incredible dune riding, this is the place to be. There are more than 20,000 acres for ATV, dirt bike and OHV riders to explore. This means plenty of dune-riding options for every skill level.
