Rent a UTV Off-Road Adventures is located in east El Paso Texas. We are near a popular desert area locals have dubbed “RED SANDS.” Red Sands is NOT an off-road park or official off-highway recreational area. In fact, we DO NOT recommend you visit the area on your own.
Red Sands is not managed or maintained by anyone and many areas are actually closed to the public. In spite of this, Red Sands has been a popular area for off-road enthusiasts since the early 1960s! Professional Baja-Style races and organized trail rides are often hosted in this area by various clubs and organizations.
Since Red Sands is not an official off-highway recreational area, it does not have any official borders and technically does not exist. Red Sands is sort of a general term used by locals to categorize the entire desert area in east El Paso that lies south of Hueco Tanks State Park off of Montana Ave (US Hwy 62/180).
Red Sands is comprised of both private and public lands which extend for miles, featuring rolling sand dunes, hills, and hundreds of compact dirt trails. Red Sands has once submerged under an ancient sea approximately 34 million years ago.
Over the course of millions of years the ancient water receded and through various processes of erosion the area you see today was created. Ancient fossils and precious American Indian Artifacts, such as arrowheads, pottery, and more are scattered throughout the region.
