Thirty two miles and over three hundred curves, the Back of the Dragon is the premier riding road in the nation! Ideal for sports cars or motorcycles, this road offers the most spectacular views you can find in the Appalachians. Crossing three mountains in its course from Marion, Virginia to Tazewell, Virginia, the Back of the Dragon offers knee dragging curves, switchbacks, limited access and elevation changes that no other motorcycle route can offer. After becoming a Dragon Master, stop in a local dive for lunch or dinner and spend some time riding the hundreds of miles of great byways Tazewell County has to offer!
Watch for our yearly event held usually in June – Back of the Dragon Day. Visit our website for further information and to purchase your Back of the Dragon apparel.
