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.

    Bonnie, all I can suggest is to take Highway 51 North. Take the Northern exit and take a right. The paved road will take you right into the Dreamy Draw Recreation area and right to the parking lot.
