Nice views and a great mix of incline and flat areas. Lots of rocks so wear good shoes especially if going up the 220. Beautiful and took about 2 hours to loop while enjoying the scenery.

Nice bits of rock/stone and up n down. GPS necessary if you want to stay on these loops; not well marked; many other trails branch off hither n thither n yon. Better views n more secluded on E side.

Pretty much all the trails loop back around, yeah it might be hard to follow the EXACT trail, but honestly what’s the fun in that? Relax and let the trail take you and choose your own adventure... getting a little lost is fun and I mean you can see the highway and civilization from anywhere on these trails, so it’s not like you’re really lost...

Nice place to go on small hikes in Phx. Only downside was there are a lot of mountain bikers so you are constantly getting out of their way.

Really nice, easy meandering trail. Not well marked, but nice for a wandering noncommittal hike.

Beautiful scenery, but this trail is not easy to follow, thankfully I used the gps on this app to follow the trail but still very confusing.

Dreamy draw overall is great. Gotta pay attention, as many trails merge.
Great for trail running.

trail is poorly marked. It's a nice area, just wish we took the trail that we intended to take. because it was poorly marked we ended up doing another trail.

Nice trails, rolling hills and twisting turning trails.

Bad, trail markers need updating. people have placed their own stickers on the trail markers. kind of a guessing game on where you're going.

Fairly easy trails, but the length and with a little improving, can become a challenging workout. Nice views, friendly folks, if you do go your own way, keep an eye out for mountain bikers who share the path, especially if you are hiking up the inclines that have hidden turns. The park is beautiful, and really has a nice tranquil feel to it.

Parking is limited need to get here early.
There are about 20 different trails here from easy to difficult you can make it the day you want.

It's a short hike, we went around twice to feel like we did something. But it's a nice hike, great for starters.

Did the 220 trail. Very poorly marked. There are numerous other trails the all come together at about the same location. Without a phone trail app, I would not have been able to follow the trail. The scenery was nice and the trails themselves or ok. I would not go back.

The trails were well marked and clear. We only hiked for a short while as the sun was setting but that sunset was possibly the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I highly advise this hike

Dreamy Draw Dam is a spectacular area the more you venture into the different web of trails. These trail loops provide an ideal area for a wonderful urban hike, you'll find swift climbs on the trail, rugged rock slopes, and plenty of switch backs.

This trail can provide scenic views of downtown in the background while moving through a beautiful landscape of red cherry barrel cacti, blooming poppy seeds, and hills of grey and red rock trails; it's perfect for the urban hiker, trail runner, and mountain bikers.

Cons:

•Trail is not marked well

• Recent rainstorms have trashed the trails leaving plenty of rocks n debris on trail making hard to find the way - Study Trail Map Prior

Great for a quick hike right in the middle of town. The trails are pretty easy and wide enough for the traffic, however the trails themselves are not very well marked. There's no real danger of being lost because you can see freeways and other landmarks along the way, there's only one parking lot. I recommend studying the map first, and try other trails are there are several different ways you can go.
