Description

Dragon's Back is a south to north route that features gradual climbs and descents along a mesa-top ridge. The trail is fairly smooth with a couple of more difficult sections here and there. At times the route can become narrow and bumpy in places. Stay focused in these sections as you'll feel a bit of exposure as well.

Beware of the deep sink hole type features that form when there are cracks in the underlying gypsum. They're cool to look at but probably bad to try and ride through! A steep loose descent finishes this section of trail, ending in a notch where you can either continue along the ridge or drop down to the left on the Dragon's Back Connector.
