This is a very good place for a family hike. many, many trails, none of which are very difficult and finding your way back is a cinch due to the layout. Really enjoyed it.

I didn’t have much time to spend here, however it’s good for short, long or in between walks/hikes. Lots of people brought their dogs. Not as crowded as some parks. I will come back when I have more time to explore.

I love hiking on this mountain. It has lots of trails that you can travel down. Be advised that hiking on any mountain during the summer months you must always bring lots of water and wear appropriate clothing that keeps your body cool.

If you're looking for trees, forget about it. These hiking trails are GREAT from late Sep to early May. NOT recommended during the summer months as there is NO SHADE. The trails vary in difficulty. Some offer GREAT views. So many trails to choose from....More

A nice hiking area just off the highway that also offers a bike trail. Quiet and peaceful, you don't even realize how close you are to traffic

We had a great hike in Dreamy Draw. We wandered around for about 3 miles seeing beautiful views on a beautiful day. It was ideal for how I wanted to spend the day, however, I thought many trails were poorly marked (seems like lots of...More

This area offers a wonderful experience for walking and hiking. There are many trails, some easy, some moderate, some more strenuous that are well maintained and have wonderful views. It was a great pleasure for us to spend hours walking and hiking in Dreamy Draw.

Two reasons to visit Dreamy Draw with kids: there is a paved path, perfect for strollers, and with the unpaved trails kids can wander and see so much desert landscape (maybe wildlife too!) without a huge climb. We often take visitors here too; being right...More
