A hike to Castle Creek is well worth the effort. At Castle Creek, the dunes rise abruptly from the creekbed at sharp angles. Dune slipfaces avalanche as they near angles greater than 34 degrees. Steep slipfaces are challenging to climb; stay on the ridges and slide down the faces. Park in the Dunes Parking Lot and walk north along the base of the dunes.
