Route 16 in VA, between Marion and Tazewell is an incredible piece of road. It’s as good (if not better than) the “Tail Of The Dragon” in NC/TN. The road surface is decent, there is little traffic, speed limits are not artificially low, as they are on the “Dragon”. This road is just now becoming famous with bike riders so get there early, before it get’s too commercialized. Someone has already dubbed it the “Back Of The Dragon”.
33 Miles long and 4 mountain peaks to cross.
