Think the Tail of the Dragon is cool?

Yes, I know there are plenty of fantastic roads in the area, but most people have heard about the TotD. Wife and I are on vacation, in Tennessee. We're staying in a time-share condo, at "The Summit of Gatlinburg". The road to it is a friggin' goat trail! Sure, it's not 11 miles long or have 318 curves, but, damn!

Shaky, but you get the point

Gatlinburg is circled in yellow. We came in from the north on the Parkway Bypass, in orange. Video is on the blue line.

Looks like some of the highways in southeast Missouri.

If it is a fun ride, post it on MotorcycleRoads.us so more people can enjoy it.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

Probably. I didn't see the tram from the condo we were at, but I would imagine it gets up there, too.

ONG, while it's a fun road, it's only 2.5 miles.

We stayed there last year. The driveway to our condo was really steep, rutted on one side and it had a cliff on the other side. It was a fun riding road up to the condo but the real challenge was driving it in my Excursion pulling a 19' trailer (on the first and last day).

Gatlinburg rocks!
