Tail of the Dragon

Time Required: 8-hour rental
Highlights: 318 curves in 11 miles, and lunch on the river

One of our favorite full day road trips begins going north on TN-68 to Tellico Plains, TN, then cut across the Cherohala Skyway to Robbinsville, NC where you can enjoy a good lunch on the river at the Tapoco Lodge. After lunch, drive up US 129 to the Tail of the Dragon. We encourage you to go both directions on the Tail of the Dragon to experience the 318 curves in 11 miles. Then you can drive back on US 129 towards the Nantahala through Murphy, NC before finishing in McCaysville, GA to drop off the rental.
