Most dunes are 3,500 to 4,000 years old and some are as high as 140 feet. Unlike other dune systems, this one is interspersed with woody vegetation.

You can access the trail from the south off Nurnberg Road. A small parking area is located on the north side of the road six miles west of Quarterline Road.
