We ran the Dragon in May in our ‘07 ‘Vette and did it again this September in our new 2014 Stingray. It was just as thrilling as the first time, but a little different since now we have an auto transmission. The curves seemed lest challenging this time, could be the better suspension or I have gotten a little better... More

We rode the tail of the dragon and Hellbender 28 and both provided excellent riding. Not for inexperienced or faint of heart. This is still a highway and you will meet all kinds of vehicles including semis. Scenery is beautiful, but you can't take your eyes off the road. Be careful and enjoy.

318 curves in 11 miles! This short stretch of road is pure excitement. No time to relax. As soon as you come out of one curve there is another. It takes full concentration and both hands. No time for enjoying the scenery. Drive it or ride it. It's fun either way.

Took the ride here while visiting family in Georgia. The ride was fun and also demanding. I consider my self an above average rider and while I had no trouble at all navigating this roadway it is a challenge. If you an avid biker it's a can't miss but be cautious and ride safe.

Having driven professionally for years, I thought this would be a snap. This turned out to be an extremely challenging drive through some beautiful country. Having done it in the rain made it more challenging. We did it in a smaller car, not a motorcycle, but I can imagine the fun on a bike, but you better be good on... More

We went with 2 other couples to ride the Dragon's Tail. Very challenging ride, but a lot of fun. Not recommended in the rain.

Wow! The dragon is so awesome for careful motorcycle riders. We have a gold wing & never needed to hold on because my husband is such a great driver. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous; I would love to go back during the changing of the leaf time. 318 turns & the wind blowing thru my hair, I felt like I... More

We rode the Dragon for my husband's birthday in his Mazdaspeed3. I am not a high thrills kind of person, but this was fun! My husband had a blast riding the curves and testing out his car's performance against the viper that was riding close to us. We started in Tennessee and ended in North Carolina so we could earn...

I made it and am a proud owner of the Dragon Tail shirt! This is the best challenging car ride ever made. The color of my Passnger's face went to green after the xxx curve. Next time I do this road with an empty stomach, too. My Mustang roared and tires screamed on the dry asphalt. Jee, what an adventure!
