Lonely Planet review for Kelso Dunes
Three miles W of Kelbaker Road, the weathered Kelso Dunes rise up to 600ft above the Devil's Playground. Like Death Valley's Eureka Dunes, these 'booming' dunes can produce a musical sound when sand slips down their faces - try running down 'em to jumpstart the effect. The dunes are a 3-mile round-trip hike from the parking area.
