This hike is rated EASY. (But there is some gradual climbing.)
Join me for an impomptu hike on New Year's Day in the Dreamy Draw area. They say whatever you do on the first day of the new year, then you will continue doing that throughout the year (so don't be a couch potato!). We will take the #100 trail to the Mound (that's my name for it), take part of the #1A, then come back on an unmarked trail, making a big loop. Put on your sturdy hiking shoes, bring at least 2 liters of water and maybe bring a camera. Come on out and start the new year right!
