(MapQuest shows a service road that is not accessible to the public.)

The trailhead is located just north of the parking lot in Dreamy Draw Recreation Area near 19th Street and Northern Avenue. A large paved parking lot, drinking water and restrooms are available.

      Some of the 3h hikes are Fitness hikes such as this one. It would be unpleasant experience to make this your first time

      There is a beginner/intermediate level hike on Wed. evenings @ 6:00 pm. that meets at the same Dreamy Draw parking lot. That might give you a good sense of your fitness level.

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.
