Located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway near mile post 334, only 50 miles north of Asheville, and 44 miles south of Boone, North Carolina
The Diamondback is another great challenge to add to your tour list. This 38 mile diamond shaped loop includes NC 226A, US 221, Toms Creek Road, NC 80 and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Fun for motorcycles and sportscars. And getting here via the Blue Ridge Parkway is just an added bonus. One of the Tail of the Dragon favorite rides !!
ROAD CONDITION UPDATE: We had a report that portions of 226A have been patched with rubber crack sealer and may be slippery. Watch your speed.
