Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve Colorado

Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve Overview

Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve features the tallest sand dunes in North America at 750 feet (230 m) tall.  The park also has beautiful alpine lakes, six 13,000 foot mountains and old growth forest to explore. If you’re there at the right time, you can also hang out at the seasonal Medano Creek and beach created at the base of the dunes. The park and sand slopes are open year round, so grab your sandboard and hit the slopes! Just remember, there are no sand lifts – it’s all hike up and board down.
