I'm asking of Rt 28 because I want to stay off of as much of Rt. 129, Tail Of Dragon, as I can. Hoping to only have to get on 129 near the Cheoah Dam and do the 10 miles or so up to the Foothills Pkwy. Is this doable in a 30 foot Class'C'?


Doable? Yes most likely. But the road it's self is only part of the problem, it's the other drivers. Also you are not missing the bad part of US-129. US-129 back to US-74 at Topton NC isn't that bad. Remember the 319 corners in 11 miles, your only going to miss the 1st mile. And I don't think NC-28 from US-74 to US-129 is any better. There was a sign right as NC-28 left US-74 that warned about 44 miles of slow corners and grades up to 12%. That would be about all the way to Foothills Pkwy. Although I think that only the part NC-28 from Stecoah to Fontana is really that bad. From US-129 to Fontana isn't real bad as the road runs along the river.

You would be 10 times happier and faster to head on up to Dillsboro and take 74.west.
