Dreamy Draw Trails
WHAT TO BRING :
WATER (1-20 liters),
HEADLAMP or FLASHLIGHT; although it's light when we begin, you'll be abandoned in the dark by the end of the hike.
MEETING LOCATION: The Dreamy Draw Recreation Area is located at the END of Northern, just East of SR-51, Phoenix, Arizona, USA, Earth, Milky Way, Universe. If you are coming either North or South on SR-51, exit at Northern. Northern heading east dumps into the Dreamy Draw Recreation Area. Follow the road into the recreation area to the parking lot until you can go no further without running over hikers or other multi-use types....see Trail Type (above). There is but one entry road with no deviation so you'll have to sneak out by driving in reverse without any lights on. (MapQuest shows a service road that is not accessible to the public... so avoid being public... or don't use MapQuest) There are trailheads going every which way from the parking lot... so just look for a clump of people...or hikers. A large paved parking lot, drinking water and restrooms are available.
DRIVING DIRECTIONS: Go to the Meeting Location (above)

REMINDER! Begin to
HYDRATE at least an hour
BEFORE the hike and bring
WATER to maintain hydration during the hike.
RECOVER after the hike with beverages containing alcohol such as
BEER. Always use a designated driver after consuming alcohol. We will wait up to 5 minutes for those that RSVP Yes... and possibly a bit longer if you call and say you will be late. Please call if you're going to be a no-show or are running late. Jim -[masked]

    Fun times! Thanks, everyone. Map my hike has us for more miles but it sure didn't capture the elevation climbs...just used the difference between highest and lowest hike... not the masochistic ups and downs the leader took us on. Thanks for leading the runners, Gladys. http://www.mapmyhike.com/routes/view/191486486

      I didn't think so many will run back, day was just perfect and sunset so inspiring just couldn't help it! :D I noticed MapMyRun, hike, bike etc doesn't calculate the total elevation gain some time ago.. Garmin site adds some.. So far Strava has been more accurate, let's how it does over time.

    Great Hike/Run. Jim our leader did a perfect job. Great pace and provided a short recovery after challenging accents. Thus providing a better collected "sence of self" on the declines. Good group, great engergy.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
