Tail Of The Dragon






"Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap" with 318 curves in 11 miles. It is really fun for the motorcycles and classic cars, all of the curves there are a camera crew waiting for your picture ...but it is fun for every one. Unless you don't do sharp curves? This pull off restaurant and gift shop ... was a great place to take in some sights.

If you can not read the sign on the last shot "Caution: Watch For Falling Parts From The Tree Of Shame" ... these are parts from falling motorcycles.

I am almost positive that part of this road is in Tennessee and part in North Carolina ...but I don't have the picture of the sign and it is to curvy to take that picture. Yes, we did pull over for several bikes just so they can go on wizzy by. Some of those bikers are nuts they way they drive that road!!! Are they drunk or what??!?! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed. Beth ( ;

You're correct -- the Tail of the Dragons goes from Tennessee to North Carolina (when heading down the mountain). We've driven this road several times, and it is always beautiful. Unfortunately it can also be vey deadly -- motorcyclists die along the street of highway every year.
