  • Dreamy Draw Recreation Area

Dreamy Draw FITNESS HIKE @ 5:30pm

Start Time: 5:30pm Return Time: 7:00pm (or later)

Trail: Random

Length: Undetermined

Elevation: Varies

Trail Type: Multi-use (hikers, horses, cyclists, dogs, coyotes, rattlesnakes, plodders, homeless, movers, shakers, groovers, butchers, bakers, candlestick makers, the undead, and even vegetarians)

Difficulty: MODERATE to MODERATELY-DIFFICULT to OMG I DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR THIS FITNESS HIKE for those interested in exploring the STEEPER GRADES of the Dreamy Draw Recreation Area at a BRISK PACE. Assess your abilities accordingly! Bring WATER! We leave the parking lot at 5:30pm and occasionally return by 7:00pm. Dreamy Draw Trails

WHAT TO BRING : WATER (1-20 liters),

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) cool 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.

    Jim, I tried to bleed for the cause, but only succeeded in twisting my ankle.Thankfully Gladys was there to guide the troops over the last hill while I gimped around the mountain.

      Thanks. It didn't swell up as much as I feared when the boot came off. Nothing a little ice won't numb down.

      I’m not a fan of hiking proverbs, but there’s one that I consider gospel: “If your feet are happy, the rest of you is happy.”

      It's terrifying to think of all the ways this could go horribly wrong. :-)
