Evening hike at Dreamy Draw

This hike is rated DIFFICULT

Join me for an evening hike at Dreamy Draw. The first half of the hike we will take trail #100 going under the 51 freeway (Rated Moderate).There will be some ups and downs but not real steep. The second half of the hike, we will take an unmarked trail up Stoney Mountain. This portion is VERY STEEP with loose rocks (DIFFICULT). We'll be treated to beautiful nighttime views at the top and get in a terrific workout! We will go at a moderate pace but due to elevation gain this is a strenuous trail for fit individuals. Evaluate your skills accordingly. You're encouraged to bring snacks, a camera andbring at least 2+ liters of water per person and sturdy hiking footwear. You should also bring a flashlight and/or a headlamp as we'll be in the dark part of the hike.

Difficulty wise, I would compare this hike to Piestewa Peak Summit Trail but the steep part has loose rocks and isn't as long.

OPTIONAL: Hiking poles and hiking gloves

DISTANCE: 3.1 miles roundtrip
ELEVATION GAIN: 600 ft
TRAIL STYLE: in and out
DURATION: 2 hours
DOGS: no, too steep
FACILITIES: Bathroom and water fountain
WEBSITE: Trailmap
DIRECTIONS: AZ Route 51 to exit 7 - Northern Ave. Head east on Northern Ave and you'll immediately enter the park. Continue on the winding access rd until you reach the parking lot.
