The Dragon at Deals Gap in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina

Motorcyclists and sports car enthusiasts from around the country come to the Smokies for the great riding climate and the endless ribbon of winding country roads. And a must-ride for any motorcyclist is "The Dragon". Officially known as Hwy 129, The Dragon has 318 curves in just 11 miles. The adventure begins at Deal's Gap near Robbinsville, NC and offers sections like "Little Whip", "The Slide", and "The Gravity Cavity" to name a few. 

Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort offers a motel and camping facilities, plus a restaurant and store, right on the Dragon - everything the Dragon Slayer needs for a great stay.  Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort is located at the south end of the Dragon.
