The Sperry Wash Route provides a unique opportunity for users
camped at Dumont who are willing to put dirt tires on their vehicle. Our Rhino
lives with dirt tires, so this was a no brainer for us. The Rhino proved
to be the perfect vehicle for the trip up the wash. Three of us fit
comfortably, and the roof provided a bit of much needed shade. The
temperatures for the weekend were record-setting (high 90's), so the Amargosa
River provided some cooler activities for the kids.
Green sticker OHVs are allowed from Dumont Dunes Rd. to
Western Talc Mine Rd. Sperry Wash Route travels up the Amargosa Canyon
following the Amargosa River.
Vehicle use along this route is limited to designated trails.
The route is bordered by congressionally designated Wilderness. If you want to
keep this route open, do your part and stay on the trail.
There are two ways to get onto the trail from the dunes. The
first is right past the river crossing, and the other is along the old T &
T Railroad Grade.

The cleanup was held on Saturday March 17, 2007. It was a hot
