Starting at the end of Dragons Back, you head right and take your next right onto a single track trail. Follow this for a bit, and keep an eye out for trail signs at intersections. The trail winds up the rim opposite Dragons Back, with several other trails spider webbing. There's a few springs along the way, as well as sink holes, so if you want to get touristy, explore a bit.
Once you're further up the trail, they have markers at most of the intersections. Which is good because there are several dead end trails. They have great views, so if you want to snap a photo, check them out.
The trail winds all the way back along the rim to the south end of the area, where you can pick up the other main trails.

Well marked with either signs or obvious rock piles to know where to go when the trail disappears while riding the springs
