Tail of the Dragon

Spanning a distance of 11 miles between Tennessee and North Carolina, this section of US-129 features 318 curves and is known as the Tail of the Dragon. It’s been called “America’s most exciting 11 miles“, a potentially dangerous drive requiring attentiveness to safety and a sense of caution.

Unfortunately, many motorcycles and automobiles have crashed along this road, as some have sought to complete the route as fast as possible. And, of course, many of the turns have very limited (or no) visibility. So, please remain in your lane while driving, and enjoy the ride!
