Monday Night Dreamy Draw Loop HIKE

Start Time: 6:00pm PROMPTLY
Return Time:
7:30pm

Trail: 100 to 40th st
Length: 5.25 miles
Elevation: 1,580 ft. - 1,380 ft.
Trail Type: Multi-use (hikers, horses, cyclists)


Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult

While this is not a fitness hike, it is also not recommended for beginners because of the length.  The hike will split into two groups: a "fast" group that averages 4.0 - 4.5+ mph and does some trail running, and a "normal" group that keeps a moderate pace of 3.0 - 3.5 mph.

NOTE: If you are familiar with the trail, feel free to go at any pace you like.  Be aware this is no designated "sweeper" for this hike, so if you don't know the trail, you must be able to keep up at least with the moderate hikers.  Assess your abilities carefully and honestly!!

WHAT TO BRING : WATER (1-2 liters) you can refill at 40th street, sunscreen or long sleeves for sun protection, a headlight or flashlight because we can be out after dark!.

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 electrolytes or low-sugar sports drinks.

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.

    I have not done anything that I needed to get done today, Sunday. That means that if I actually want to eat and other things, I must do all that I should have done today on my way home from work Monday. No hiking for me. Enjoy the fitness hikers.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
