Nearly all trails are clearly marked and maintained. Many divergences in the trails offer a wide variety of paths. Lots of mountainous ascents and descents that offer a change of pace for bikers and hikers alike
I went to Dreamy Draw Park today. Never been there before, though I don't know why since it"s right around the corner from my house. I started out on the 100, which I know travels through Piestewa Peak Park and then on to Tatum Drive. I continued on it for a while. Mostly flat and not difficult. I turned off the 100 and onto the 1A, another trail I know well from Piestewa Peak. 1A switchbacked up the mountain, so it posed a little difficulty. I turned around and came back down the mountain and onto the 100. I did not finish it today since I like climbing the mountains and the 100 does not do that. It is a long flat hike, but there is a lot of desert to see from it, and it connects to climbing trails.
enjoyed this trail very much. mild/moderate. brought the dog. you can cut it short after getting around the base of the ntn or keep going. will be back!
Really enjoyable trail. Great mix of terrains, from flat smooth paths to rocky, fairly technical climbs and descents. Lovely views from some of the higher points. Can get a bit confusing since the trail loops around on itself at several points, but that also keeps it interesting.
Nailed it! Great hike.
I did this trail yesterday, without really intending to. I went looking for the 100 Trail on Tatum drive, and I found it before realizing that is also the Charles M. Christiansen Memorial Trail! Anyway. Quite a good trail with some difficulty added in on connecting trails. The connector just east of the Trail 8 crossover leads south, and then climbs to the Two Bit Peak Trail. That is a little bit of a hard climb, with tricky rocks and lots of uphill. It does get to the top, where there are great views of East Valley mountains. I did 9.38 miles on Charles M. Christiansen between Tatum and Squaw Peak and that connector. Good, fun work.
Great variety of terrain.
nice city trail
great if you want to put in some time and miles on a flatter (not flat) trail
also great to test your endurance without going way out into the wilderness as you as vever more than a mile from hel should you need it
caution the trail tunnnel at dreamy draw is trick to find it is slightly north of the parking lot
not south as that is for cars only with no trail acess
water is available at freamy draw and the visitors centre
Did 10 miles, 3 before dawn.
Great, easy hike when you want to relax but feel like you are in the middle of no where. Pretty views in spots of Four Peaks. Not too crowded. This hike is day to get your zen on and just escape the city a little while without traveling very far.
Great trail located in PHX area. It's pretty moderate hiking wise.
Great for biking, not to hard is good for beginners.
