Description

Dragon is a student built trail with numerous wooden features, including Dragon Bridge which is 8 inches wide, 100 feet long, and 2 feet off the ground spanning a woodland swamp. Other skinnies are only 3 inches wide with step ups over logs, or spanning abandoned test pits from copper mining days.

The tread is rooty and rocky with tight corners and little clearance to trees. There are two gap jumps with alternate lines in the meadow near the end of the loop.
