The Algodones Sand Dune system covers 1,000 square miles, making it one of the largest dune complexes in North America. The dunes are interrupted in places by basins of flats, which support mesquite, smoke tree, ironwood, palo verde, and desert willow trees. The flat-tailed horned lizard, desert tortoise, and Colorado desert fringe-toed lizard have all been spotted in the region. The 32,000-acre North Algodones Wilderness Area provides ample opportunities for solitude and primitive recreation.
