Directions: Traveling west on West Center St. in Kanab, follow the road as it turns north and becomes US-89 North (also N 300 W). Continue driving north for 7.4 miles to a (signed for the park) left turn onto Hancock Rd. Head west for 9.4 miles on the gravel road before dead-ending at Coral Pink Sand Dunes Rd. Turn left and drive about two and a half miles to a left turn into the park entrance.

Synopsis: As we left the park we couldn't resist one more little walk in the orange sands and another chance for some pictures. This little pullout on the southeast side of the road is a fun spot to gain another perspective on the beautiful scenery this place has to offer.
