"Tail of the Dragon" on U.S. 129
"Tail of the Dragon" on U.S. 129

U.S. Highway 129 is a spur of U.S. Highway 29. It currently runs for 582 miles (937 km) from Knoxville, Tennessee to Chiefland, Florida at U.S. Highway 19 and U.S. Highway 98. It passes through the states of Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. It goes through the cities of Knoxville, Tennessee, Athens, Georgia, and Macon, Georgia. Eleven miles of US 129 located on the Tennessee/North Carolina border is known as the Tail of the Dragon, a popular motorcycle and sportscar destination. The Dragon's name is apparently derived from the roadway's resemblance -- on maps -- to a dragon's back. The Dragon runs from Tab Cat Creek to Deals Gap and has 318 curves.
