Incredible! Great for the family as well as a great place for backcountry camping. The hike to the campsite was short and easy, good news after a fun day sledding the dunes. The sunset was stunningly beautiful. I was worried about tent camping on sand but the campsite was compact enough for my small stakes. :)

Talk about a breathtaking experience. After enduring La Luz Trail all the way to the top, I rode the tramway back down. The view is stunning while the trail was strenuous. I parked at the bottom of the tramway taking the connecting trail of Tramway trail to La Luz trail. I went for spring break mid March, the snow and ice made the top 3 miles of the hike VERY dangerous. However, I felt overwhelmingly accomplished when I reached the top. If you plan to attempt the 8 mile La Luz Trail, I recommend leaving early in the morning (no earlier than May) with a good pair of hiking boots, plenty of water & snacks, and cold weather gear just in case. GOOD LUCK! :)
