Re: Great Sand Dunes NP: How Much Time?

If you're not going to hike, and you don't have a 4wd, 2 hours from the time you turn off US160 could be plenty,  In the spring, zapata falls, for the adventuresome, is a great addition, but not in the fall, and not without a 4wd for the approach.

There's a dirt road that continues north through the park and beyond, but it's quite rough.

We visited last fall, so you might say the above is road tested.  Keep in mind too that lodging in the area is sparse.  We stayed in Alamosa, which is not a place to get excited about.
