headlight/flashlight is necessary.
MEETING LOCATION: The Dreamy Draw Recreation Area is located at the END of Northern, just East of SR-51. If you are coming either North or South on SR-51, exit at Northern. Northern dumps into the Dreamy Draw Recreation Area. Follow the road into the recreation area to the parking lot. There is but one entry road with no deviation as you drive toward the parking lot. (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.

    It's a beginners hike meaning the pace won't be too fast for conversation and to snap some wildlife pictures right? I just don't want to drive all the way down and it be too fast. Also why do we need jackets?

      Jillian - Also this is a year round posted hike so the description tends to cover the winter months as well. Certainly no jackets are needed this time of year or flashlights. :)

      I would like to go I just don't want to end up left behind. I bit off more than I could chew earlier they were like running the trails. I might as well give it a shot I guess

    I'd like to do this hike, provided I'm feeling well enough that day. If I come from home, I'm over on 99th basically by the stadium. what would you say is the best route to take in that case?

    • michael s.

      I think your best bet would take northern east It dead ends into Dream Draw
