Big Daddy Dune Reviews
Nous avons gravi la dune en suivant la crête. A un moment, on doit cependant passer sur le flanc, raide, pendant une vingtaine de mètres... et c'est véritablement très difficile.

Most people give up there. Although sporty, it was a very difficult time for me. Take your time, it's the holidays;-) Then the rest of the ascent is easily done on the ridge. The reward, in addition to the view? The descent! The sand holds us back so it's easy to go straight down, in 5 minutes we're down, awesome!
A slightly difficult walk, but soo worth it when you get to the top. Awesome views of the petrified forest. So much fun running down to the bottom. more »
Great beautiful hike, and a fun unreal experience on the way down.
Incredible. Accessible to anyone with moderate fitness. Being a runner, I think the effort needed to climb to the top is comparable to a 15km run. Which of course doesn't mean that you can't do the dune if you don't run... because you likely can. Just don't follow the crowds starting to climb the ascent which is closest to the parking lot. Keep to the left instead and start the ascent some 0.5 km away. Saves you at least 20 mins and some efforts, too.
