Quick Oregon Dunes and Trails Guide

When it comes to dunes, ATV riders are often willing to travel great distances to experience the freedom and inhibition of enjoying the sand.  While locations like Glamis and Saint Anthony Sand Dunes seem to get the lion’s share of the publicity, the truth is our country is riddled with beautiful dune parks open to ATVs.  The following guide takes a look at some of the top locales within the state of Oregon.
