    Default North Sand Hills



    This was one of the best places I've ever wheeled, I cannot wait to get back. Shane and his son Brendan showed up with a really nice WJ and were a lot of fun to wheel with. They took turns driving on the dunes, and my wife even took the Jeep for a spin around the perimeter. The Sand Hills are amazing, there are sandy back trails that you could drive on all day, and the dunes themselves are like nothing I've ever driven on before. Momentum is your buddy, as is horsepower! We tried everything and neither of us got stuck, just had to back down stuff and try again faster a few times. It was a great run! edit- forgot to credit the music in the video, it's Ben Harper, Glory & Consequence

    Here are some pics of Paul, yes we were denied on a couple of attempts at a few spots but we did prevail! It was a blast and would definatly do it again. The Grand did have an easier time after I aired it down. Rookie mistake! . Thanks for letting me borrow your air down tool. Sorry if we made yah a little nervous when I was turnin around. Once you have that momentum going dont lose it. Did that a couple of times. When it doubt GAS IT OUT!

    Sorry Paul tried to laod the video and it would not load right.

    some pics from the Sand Hills. the road / river pics in the beginning are from 14 along the Poudre, one of the most beautiful drives I've ever taken. That road alone is worth the trip! All of North Park is pretty great.

    Looks very cool, I'd be up for that area, I'm guessing there's plenty of camping there.

    Was it only the two vehicles? I thought there were several people who were going...
    i would love to do dunes but I use pizza cutters (255/85) and I would probably just sink
