“See an old pony express station”

Located in Churchill County, just north of U.S. Highway 50, "The Loneliest Road in America,"Sand Mountain is 25 miles east of Fallon, Nevada.  Managed by the U. S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the sand dunes of the 4,795 acre recreation fee area provide challenge and excitement for off-highway vehicle riders, hikers & sandboarders.   Many people visiting the area also take time to explore the historic 1860 Pony Express station and learn about the plants and animals of the Great Basin at the Sand Springs Desert Study Area. There is a designated dry-camping area near the base of Sand Mountain.  Three vault toilets are provided, however, visitors should bring plenty of water for drinking and washing since no water is available at the site. Campfires are permitted, but there is no wood available. Spring and fall offer the best weather at Sand Mountain. Mid-winter months can be cold and wet and summer days can be hot, dry and windy.

It's a RV park with people on their 4 wheelers going up the sand mountain. With a short hike you can see the Poney Express Station ruins.

It's basically a RV park with people riding their four wheelers on the sand dunes. There's no hiking to do.
