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

I LOVE Dreamy Draw Recreation Area and I spend many afternoons and weekends hiking here. The "park" is right off the freeway, but you feel like you're surrounded entirely by mountains after a few minutes of hiking. There are many trails to explore but I...More

This nice area has several options for hiking trails, also popular with bikers, runners, and even horseback riders. Several relatively easy trails, great vistas everywhere, and yet close to town. Clean and well maintained, nice picnic spots also.
