The Tail of the Dragon
Drove the "dragon" September, 2019 in my Ferrari 488GTB
See a VIDEO of the drive! (turn up your speaker volume)

The "Tail of the Dragon" route; 11 miles of VERY winding road (317 curves). Drive at your own risk.

This little shop is about a mile from the 'entrance' to the Dragon. High octane, with no ethanol gas available!

The "welcoming" Dragon at the entrance to the Dragon.

This road leads to the entrance. There is a sign that reads, "DANGER - high motorcycle accident area, next 11 miles.

Deals Gap, NC is just outside the end of the Dragon and a major stop for all visitors.

The General Store at Deals Gap. It is always surrounded by motorcycles!

This is the "Tree of Shame" at Deals Gap. It consists of motorcycle parts salvaged from bikes that have wrecked on
the Dragon (many of which have resulted in a fatality).

I drove the Smoky mountain parkway on the way home. Beautful!
