Enter Dellenback Dunes via the access trail on the north side of Hall Lake Day Use Area. The access trail on the south side of Hall Lake is posted closed to bikes. Follow the trail to the right at the first fork to dunes/Schuttpelz Lake, short ride up a hill and then stay to the left at the second fork. You will cross a small bridge where the dunes start on the other side. Once in the dunes, you are free to explore wherever you would like, but the route shown here will allow you to stay on the bike and not have to push it out of any holes. This route can be ridden both ways.

There are two large tree "islands" in this recreation area and keep an eye on these to aid in navigation back to the trailhead. On the west side of the recreation area in the low lying spots there can be areas of quicksand that develop when the water table comes up in the winter--use caution for you, your bike, and your dog. Fat bike tires of 3.8 inches and above are recommended and tire pressures between 5 psi up to 10 psi seem to work the best. These dunes are best after/during frequent rain events in the fall/winter/spring and the dunes will soften up quite a lot during the summer months. This is a great winter riding area!
