The St. Anthony Sand Dunes resemble a rolling sea of sand on the eastern edge of Idaho’s volcanic Snake River Plain.  These vast dunes are the largest in Idaho. They blanket an area approximately 35 miles long and 5 wide, and range from 50 to 500 feet high. 

This 10,600 acre area of shifting, white quartz sand is known for its unique beauty and exceptional recreation opportunities especially for off-highway vehicle enthusiasts.  The area features Deadhorse Bowl, a popular off-highway vehicle sand bowl that is one-mile in circumference and 400-feet deep, located in the western section of the dune complex.

Travel Tips

Ten Tips for Safe and Responsible Riding

  1. Stay on established trails. Cross-country travel can increase soil erosion, ignite wildfire, spread noxious weeds and damage wildlife habitat. 
  2. Always ride in control.  Ride within your abilities and your machine's capabilities.
  3. Always wear the appropriate safety gear.
  4. Only carry passengers if your off-highway vehicle, or OHV, is specifically designed to do so.
  5. Riders under the age of 16 should be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
  6. Be prepared for an emergency.  Always carry a tool kit, spare parts, and a first aid kit..
  7. Respect closed areas and private property.  
  8. Avoid wet areas and waterways; they are a vital resource for plants and animals.
  9. Don’t cut switchbacks.  Taking shortcuts damages trails and causes erosion.
  10. Share the trails and make friends with other trail users.
