Coral Pink Sand Dunes

Formed by the erosion of pink-colored Navajo Sandstone. Shredded by four-wheelers all year long.

   

Coral Pink is a four season, multiple use, family-oriented park.  ATV’s, Dune Buggies, Dirt Bikes and off-road vehicles are welcome to play here.  Photographers and nature lovers take pleasure in the non-motorized area.  Don’t forget to try the new sport of sandboarding while you are here – no lift pass or parka required!

The Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is so named for the soft red hues of the sand in this region. Over thousands of years the sand has been collecting as the wind gradually forces the grains from the surrounding red sandstone formations.

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is 3,730 acres of uninterrupted salmon pink dunes. It is a secluded playground for hiking, off-highway vehicle riding, or simply recreating in the sand. Hikers not only have the option of exploring the boardwalk, overlook trails, and nature trail within the park, but they also have the opportunity of exploring the wide variety of hikes and ATV trails located just minutes from the park.

The park includes a 22-unit campground, hot showers, modern restrooms, and a sewage disposal system and is open year round. Coral Pink Sand Dunes is located between Mt. Carmel Junction and Kanab on US-Highway 89.

Local Favorite

Around the dunes is Diana’s Throne.  This is a fun hike scrambling over slickrock with outstanding views.  Rumor says that Diana threw herself off the throone because the beauty was too much to bear.  An exceptional experience here is to go canyoneering, and fully enjoy the slides, washes and other features.
