!!ATTENTION!! the default map of Dragon's Back is not up to date. almost half way through the hike, part of it was fenced out. BUT - there is a detour, but you can imagine the inconvenience of having to trek back a few 100 yards just to take the detour. SO - just be aware of that. I would have recorded my version but it was hot and my mobile phone wasn't cooperating with me and I started having panic attacks thinking i was lost. HNGGGGG! I NEEDED AN ADULT!

PARKING:
lots of space for parking. there's actually two separate lots right next to each other. if they're both filled, you can still park outside the park area.

HIKE:
Ok - here's the thing. There's very very very very VERY little shade on this hike. So gloss up on sunblock and cover as needed. I'm pretty tanned to begin with but i think i just got super burnt. AHOOOOO!

I recommend going pretty early if you're thinking of hiking during the late spring to summer season just to beat the heat. There's plenty of inclines and declines but none too drastic. There's lots of branching trails and bike trails so pay attention to where you're heading (map at the trail head - take a picture of it if you don't want to use the alltrails map.

Lots of lizards. they're actually cute. LOL. there were a handful of people while i was on the hike. a few bikers. 1 dirt biker.

Anyway, the hike is straight forward after you head up beaumont ridge. THE ONLY THING WAS THE DETOUR!

HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!

Started late Sunday afternoon with partly cloudy cover, a lil breeze feels like low 70s and not crowded at all. Trail is not labeled, got to the cross and another bench to loop around back where I started by the Electrical towers.

Fun trail! Although my partner and I got carried away and ended up following a bike trail it was still a lot of fun! Just make sure not to be chatty Kathy’s and get yourself lost and you’ll be right as rain!

Oh, and ‘Dragon’s Back’? More like ‘Lizard’s Back’! HA There was so many cute little lizards!

It’s the starting point for a lot of different trails and the map was slightly confusing but overall it was okay.

Partial Dragon's Back! We started from Hulda Crook's Park. We walked in the valley area then headed up to see the views while hiking. Peaceful, sometimes solitary - just my wife and I, other times a few people and mountain bikers! It's a good hike, close to home. Took the dog with us, too. She enjoyed it!

This trail starts at Hulda Crooks Park - NOT on Reche Road & Scotch Lane. Trail starts near the dog park. Great workout - lots of ups and downs - but no shade. Be prepared.

This place is pretty big with lots trail choices. No shade and lots of wild animal activity (mules, wild boar, Bob cat, dear, etc.). Trail is packed dirt so ok for strollers. It's also full of mountain bicycles so be aware where you walk as they can appear out of nowhere very quickly.

Did as part of Jedi trail. Good rolling hills. Will definitely do it again.

Not a bad hike. Will have to do again in spring when it’s green.

Great hike! Watch out for bikers, the few that I ran into were courteous but they get going pretty fast so be mindful of them.

Amazing beautiful hike! The rolling hills are awesome, at the views are great. Saw a couple snakes, a baby rattler. So be mindful of that. Can't wait to do it again, took us about an hour and 25 minutes to do the entire loop, that was at a steady not as fast pace.

This trail is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. You can get lost very easily because there are so many different paths you can take. Overall very worth the detore, my friend and I expect to do the 3.6 mile loop and ended up doing 6 miles because we trailed off the wrong path lol.
