Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap is America’s favorite two-lane touring road. There’s no other road even close to matching the challenge of 318 curves in 11 miles of desolate Smoky Mountain asphalt. But there
are other good roads to explore such as the Cherohala Skyway, Moonshiner 28, Diamondback, Blue Ridge
Parkway, Six Gap, the Gambler and the Devils Triangle.
