Just got back from doing the tail of the Dragon plus 600 miles of mountain roads.
That will kick your butt big time. But am going back soon.

We go up to Maggie Valley, every time we come to America, which is usually about once every two years. Can't get enough of that area, although the "Tail of the Mouse" Wink is just a few gentle curves with not much in the way of views. Much better riding roads in the surrounding areas, but of course everyone needs to ride it once!!

Went there in June on the CTX. Will go back this fall on the swing. Beautiful area!

Cherahola skyway was my favorite...

Very good roads in that area. It's been over 10 years since road the tail of dragon.
Hotel in Pigeon Forge for a few days end of Labor Day weekend everyone was leaving when we got there. PERFECT.
One morning valleys filled with fog but when we got up a little in elevation full sun and looking down was like a snow covered landscape. Never forget that!!!! Smokies.

Next time try the Back of the Dragon. Virginia Hwy 16 (Marion to Tazewll VA). 3x longer than the Tail, just as technically challenging & fun, stunning views, minimal traffic and I didn't see one LEO over 4 days of riding there. If you like camping, I recommend Hungry Mother State Park at the start of Hwy 16 in Marion (they have cabins too). Lots of hotels and shopping in Marion. This area remains a hidden gem.
