Eureka Dunes Area
Eureka Dunes are some extremely tall dunes! But not only are they extremely big piles of sand, they are also home to a few plant species that occur nowhere else. Eureka Dunegrass and Eureka Valley Evening Primrose are two of the extremely rare plants found on and around the dunes. Other interesting sites in this area are Dedeckera Canyon, Steel Pass, and another set of dunes off to the west of Eureka Dunes. (Click here to view area map.)
