It was considerably an easy hike. An hour up and another hour down. Scenery was beautiful. Definitely relaxing to immerse in nature!

Multiple trails to follow, all offering great views and semi-strenuous walking. There are a couple areas that are stone steps, mainly at the beginning of the main trail. These are tough steps, and can be discouraging. But keep climbing and you're rewarded with some of...More

Dragon's back is a great hike which is not too difficult. The views are awesome and ending at Big Waves Bay beach is the cherry on the cake.

Can you hike Dragon's Back without a guide? How much is the guide fee if my group will do a DIY trip? Thanks!

Hi, you definitely do not need a guide. We felt comfortable along the trail and there was ample signage!
Is it safe for solo-hiking?

Yes, and you might get to know new people along the hike.
Hi, appreciate if you guys could fill me in about the best time to go visit the Dragon's Back? I am going on Monday / Tuesday to avoid "human traffic" so.. is Dragon's Back a good spot to catch the Sunrise? or Sunset? and how far to the peak? I am staying at Y-Loft by the way, its very close to Dragon's Back - so they say.... Thank you very much in advance!
