Kelso Dunes

Dunes in Mojave National Preserve

Rising to 700ft, these beautiful dunes are the country’s third-tallest sand dunes. Under the right conditions they emanate low humming sounds that are caused by shifting sands. Running downhill sometimes jump-starts the effect. The trailhead to the dunes is about 3 miles on a graded dirt road west of Kelbaker Rd, 7 miles south of the Kelso Depot Visitor Center.
