The Dunes area is great for exploring, and today it was very quiet at the park. Prepare for cold temps if you plan to hike in Dec (mid 30 deg F today), but snow on red cliffs and pine trees make for beautiful scenery. I just wandered around the dunes and hiked to the top of the tallest one. Soft sand makes walking a little more strenuous (think beach), but you can have an enjoyable hike without extreme elevation changes.
Fun short hike onto the "coral pink sand dunes". Be sure to hike out to one of the taller dunes, it's quite a challange. Watch out for "offroad vehicles".
