Absolutely loved it. Few pockets of shade if you go early enough in the AM

Nice trail system but can get confusing. But getting lost is sort of fun as there are nice views on all paths.

Did this one today. Easy and pretty short, but quite scenic. 3+ miles. Only my 3rd time at Dreamy Draw! Squaw Peak, right next door, I have been to 100 times or more. Didn't do Dreamy Draw to Squaw Peak today

It’s okay. Nice for a hot day if you don’t want anything too hard. Poorly marked so use the app to stay on trail. Sketchy underground tunnel to get to other loop. Bring flashlight.

Might be confusing to read trail, but just stay on trail 100 for most of it. Has a few 1ft drop rocks near the top.

Rattlesnake alert. Everyone was gracious to let the other know to be careful.

This is a short hike with a few steep-ish inclines. It provides excellent views of the greater Dreamy Draw park. If you love flowers, you’ll find that golden yellow flowers sprinkle in the area. There are bees in this area but don’t be alarmed. If you are looking to see lots of saguaro cacti, this isn’t the best area for that. I recommend the VOAZ trail if that’s what you want to experience. My dog enjoyed this trail. There are many other hikers with dogs so it’s good to be alert and considerate. You will also see mountain bikers in this area. Fun for all!

Parking may be a bit crowded, I didnt have to wait too long for someone to leave. Trail was a bit confusing with so many crossing trails, all trails app helped keep them straight. Great trail for walking your dog!

Beautiful area but confusing with so many branching trails. Use the app to stay on course and/or go explore without fear of getting turned around

Confusing with the many unmarked trails during the first loop section that starts by the restrooms. 72 FitBit flights of stairs and 11.5k steps. No stall doors on the bathrooms. Lots of bikers and sunshine. Walk includes going through a long drain pipe and under the highway. Next time, we might just go with two times on the second loop. Parking gets full by 9am MST.

Beautiful trail but, be careful since it’s easy to get off trail. Took me about 2 1/2 to do both loops with my 6 month old puppy who also loved it. Definitely will do it again soon. This app made it extremely helpful to find where to go when there weren’t any markers.

Nice leisurely hike. Some climb but good views and rest spots. Hard to find the start, but once on trail, well travelled and easy to follow.

Definitely not closed as mentioned in last week’s review. Trail is enjoyable but busy, and running through culverts under the freeway isn’t my idea of a great hike. May do again but not for a while.

On the easier side of moderate. Making a note to do this one counter clockwise next time for more of a workout.

Great little hike! Dog friendly and not too busy on a Wednesday morning. Only passed a few people so I loved the privacy and peacefulness.

Great trail, especially for small dogs. You can take an easy route or a more challenging route.
