Alternate route to the Dragon from Robbinsville

Recommended Posts

Instead of just taking 129 to the Dragon, past Santeetlah Lake, turn right on Yellow Creek, left on Old Field Gap, and left on Meadow Branch. It puts you back on 129 across the street from the Tapoco Lodge. All good pavement. No traffic. Much more interesting than 129 along the Cheoah River.

My favorite route from the Robbinsville area to the Tail of the Dragon is highway 28.  One of the best roads in the area.

There is noting like spending a day riding with friends in the grip of a shared obsession.

Was there last week with old friends. Yes upper Hwy 28, "Moonshiners'" as it's known is excellent with tight corners down to a posted 10 mph on up to the high speed sweepers at 80-90 mph. Lots of nice shady  areas on the ride kept it cool. One of my faves too!

Besides, no matter how much stonk my engine has I'm still an old, slow guy. Takes more than horsepower to fix that.
