“Sweet ridge riding with some exposure and killer views.”

2.5 Miles Singletrack Type 74’ Ascent -307’ Descent 5,693’ Low 5,976’ High
Description
Dragon's Back features gradual climbs and descents along the ridge with a couple of more difficult sections thrown in. The trail is narrow and bumpy in places so you need to stay focused to not run off the straight and narrow.

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.
