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) coolREMINDER! Begin to HYDRATE at least an hour BEFORE the hike and bring WATER to maintain hydration during the hike. RECOVERafter 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.

    Martin: To answer your question about pace, the Fitness hikes tend to move @ 15 min./mile give or take. As a rule of thumb, this hike involves a good deal of hiking at an incline. There are a multitude of hikes available at all fitness levels in 3H so I'm certain you'll be welcome. You may decide to wait 30 min. and join the 6 pm 3H hike that meets in the same parking lot. Judging from your dedication, I would guess it won't be long before we'll see you on the fitness hikes, whether that is this evening or one in the near future.
