Pilgrims will head West from the Dream Draw parking lot on Trail 100 and follow it until the North Mountain Visitor Center where there will be restrooms and benches for a snack before returning on the same trail back to Dreamy Draw where you can join the chapter for a Shell Ceremony and blessing for your pilgrimage.

Dreamy Draw reopened last year after a three-year closure to make major upgrades. The trail is undulating with a few 200 ft saddles to pass and short sections of 10+% grades. There are a few rocky sections on the trail however no steep step ups. Poles are recommended. This walk is similar to walking from Puenta la Reina to Estella with some ups and downs.

BRING: Water (it is recommended at least 2 liters of water), walking shoes, sunblock, hat, snacks, your first aid kit, layers and electrolytes depending on the weather.
