Dragons Tail is essentially an alternate ride to Be Rude Not To 2 running on the other  side of Red Tank Rd.  Dragons Tail is not dissimilar to Mad If You Don't however its straighter, faster and has some short but reasonable  climbs.

I only ever  got to this area of the forest when exiting the Redwoods after a long stint riding.   The climbs on Dragons Tail are much tougher than Be Rude Not To 2 so I found myself choosing the easy option on subsequent days.  However after re-watching the video I now  wish Id ridden back up Red Tank Rd for another run or two, in fact it would be a good place to spend a few hours  riding Be Rude Not To 2, Dragons Tail, Mad If You Don't, Lion Trail, Paddy's Run, Tickler and Bunny Jugs.

Dragons Tail exits onto Red Tank Rd near *the* Red  Tank, the only landmark found on the official maps.  From here take Red Tank Rd down to Mad If You Don't.

This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
