“Some of the best riding in the US”

TAIL OF THE DRAGON AT DEALS GAP, with 318 curves in 11 miles, is America's number one motorcycle and sports car road. The nearby CHEROHALA SKYWAY is quickly becoming number two with its remote 60 miles of scenic mountain highway. The area also has other incredible roads like the MOONSHINER 28, DEVILS TRIANGLE, THE DIAMONDBACK, SIX GAP NORTH GEORGIA, THE SNAKE and GREAT FOREST SERVICE DUAL SPORT RIDING. We are expanding our coverage of the great area roads to include the southern section of the Blue Ridge Parkway, The Diamondback, north Georgia Six Gap, The Snake, The Devils Triangle, Moonshiner 28, in addition to the Cherohala Skyway and Tail of the Dragon. Now you'll have to plan a two week vacation just to get all of these roads into your riding plans. We'll also be including some lesser known roads of interest.

I don't know why it shows as closed; it's open 24/7. It's a very nice drive unless the guy in front of you won't use the pullouts, or, as happened to me, the car in front of you catches on fire and the ammunition the guy's carrying explodes. But very exciting....

Youtube videos do not do this road justice. Must be ridden to appreciate. I've been to the area 5 times already and it never ceases to entertain. Fantastic roads, great people, lots of motorcycle friendly vendors in the area.

Very fun to drive in a manual transmission sports car. Would recommend to everyone, even if you're not a fan of fast driving! A very nice drive to the top of the mountain, plus a nice scenic overlook perfect for pictures.
