  • After a day of sitting in meetings it was great to get outside and go for a hike/walk. There are three choices of paths, 1.5 miles, 5 miles and 10 miles, just make sure to take water and a flashlight....  more »
  • This is one of my favorite places to go hiking. The trails are well marked and the park gives you a feeling of safety. The views from different points in the park are amazing of the valley of the sun.  more »

  • Great trails but doesn't open on time, as late as 5:17 AM this morning. Their hours are posted from 5AM to 7PM.
  • Such a great place for mountain and road bikes. Nice climb!
  • We love hiking Dreamy Draw. It's beautiful and offers easy to difficult hikes. Not to mention the variety of trails.
  • Great place for all skill levels. Dog friendly. Nice views of Phoenix downtown area from some trails. Parking area isn't huge but seems adequate for off peak hours. Took trail 100 under the US51 all the way to Cave Creek Road. We saw an even mix of hikers and moutainbikers. The trails can be confusing for inexperienced hikers. Use your phone gps or a dedicated gps if you have trouble. Cell signal seemed to be strong our entire hike. Bring water! The desert is no joke and people tend to underestimate how quickly they can become dehydrated.
  • I absolutely love this place. I come here to hike and/or trail run. There's endless trails so you won't get bored. You can be at any skill level and have fun here because there are all types of trail difficulties. Dreamy Draw connects to Squaw Peak and has a vast amount of trails that connect throughout the city! It's incredible and I'm having such a fun time discovering all these new trails. It's a great place to see the sunrise and sunset. Just be sure to bring a headlamp if you're going towards sunset... it can be tricky/scary to get out if you're not versed in the park.
