Radical Dragon starts in the woods with a fun, flowy section of mild elevation drop and some smallish jumps. The trail then begins to descend more steeply and features some narrower, technical, rooty, droppy sections which are quite fun if you are into that sort of thing. Partway down the trail is a fairly large/steep optional rock roll - the highlight of the trail to many riders who come here especially to test their nerve on that feature. See photos. Overall lots of fun for the thrill seeker.
