Amargosa Dunes aka Big Dune

100 miles northwest of Las Vegas on Highway 95

Amargosa or Big Dune is a playground that covers about five square miles of dunes and dips, and its centerpiece is a peak that tops out at 500 feet. These hills, about 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas, are a well-kept secret and mostly used by locals, but expect to find plenty of other off-roaders on the weekends. Remember to pack plenty of water and food. Amargosa Valley is 29 miles south of Beatty on U.S. 95.

Big Dune is a unique place in southern Nevada. It is 1.5 square mile complex star dune that reaches 2,731 feet above sea level.

Base Elevation -  2435 ft.
