this seriously needs to be further investigated... i am not sure that representative from the police department knew what the heck they were talking about.

in the "what's up" section, on page 12 in this months atvsport magazine, details the new sand park. it talks about that this is the first sand dune park to open in the us in nearly 50 years. atvsport editor jerrod kelley wouldnt have allowed an article to be printed that was completely false.

the city of syracuse appointed a park manager, jenny frey. he information is listed below:

telephphone: 620.384.2480
fax: 620.384.6612 fax
email:[email protected]

polaris trails grant program even gave a grant of $10,000 to help with an entrance road.

I have been to the dunes there. From what I understand you are aloud to ride into town on quads to the gas station which is pretty close to the dunes. I could be wrong and that might have been changed just what I heard.

I did a write up for the park if anyone would like to see that. It is pretty long but has a lot of detail.

As already stated above this is the website...

http://www.syracusesand.com/ (I heard there was another website as well. Not sure what it is.)

On the website there is the rules and times of events that they are going to hold and also a forum.(Which nothing is really going on there.)

Drag racing.
As of now there is a place were everyone drag races. It isn't groomed so it can get pretty bumpy. You also should be careful of how many people you line up to race b/c at one point the "strip" is not as wide. With about 4-5 quads you are pretty close to one another. So that is something to watch out for.

Vegetation.
There is still a lot of it. The park people want you to drive though it at this point to make it more sandy. With all the vegetation still there when you drive though it there is a lot of dust like if you were riding on a dry dirt road.

Trails.
There isn't a lot of trees, however, as of now there is a lot of trails b/c all of the vegetation is still there. So unlike some places where you may decide to ride trails to get out of the sun it isn't possible here. (I haven't been on a day when I needed shade but we didn't start going until Fall.)

Things to Watch OUT for.
A few times we ran across some big holes that looks like an animal of some sort dug. These holes are big enough to have your whole front tire fall in. So watch out for those. On the "drag strip" watch for people that just ride across without looking. These people are not use to the sand or the atmosphere of "drag racing" as it probably was never apart of there lives. Of course watch out for out riders.

Dunes.
Not to many at this point. With the vegetation being killed off the sand might blow and make them larger or more of them. There are a few spots were there is sand that is piled up like a dune. Which you can of course ride on. They however are not very tall.

Boundaries.
It is well marked with a fence around the perimeter. So no worries of being somewhere you are not suppose to be.

Gate.
Anyone that has been to Little Saraha, Ok. It is the same thing. You have to have the tall flags. There is a pole that the flag has to hit. You pay $5.00 a day per rider.

Parking Lot.
It is a dirt parking lot. Doesn't seem like you are in the right place but you are as long as you can see the sign that says Syracuse Sand Dunes in orange letters. So there is always dirt blowing around in the parking lot.

Size.
Said to be a little bit bigger then Little Saraha, OK. But with the Vegetation it doesn't seem like it.

I don't know if any of you guys ride double with someone behind you or anything like that. But in the rules on the sign by the gate says no double riding but I think at this point since there isn't to many people riding there dunes yet that they aren't enforcing the law very much. But it is a rule and I am sure one day they will enforce it. I think that they are trying to be super nice at this point to get people there since it is a newer riding place before they start getting strict. Don't know if this makes any difference for anyone or needed to be known I just figured I would put that out there as well.

Your welcome for the write up.

The dunes in Kansas also has a forum and I don't know the link to them right this second. When I read though some of the stuff it talked about food places whats good and whats not.
