OVERVIEW

Buckle up for an adrenaline-pumping ride with Trailhead Adventures. Guests will slide into a Polaris Slingshot and let loose on the “Back of the Dragon.” This infamous road is recognized nationally for its 438 hairpin turns over 32 miles. While twisting and turning on the drive, guests will experience numerous elevation changes in the gorgeous Appalachian Mountains of Southwest Virginia. While scaling three mountains, guests will see breathtaking views around every corner. As they continue on this on-road adventure, guests will find themselves in the town of Marion, where they can grab a bite to eat in one of the unique local restaurants and browse the shops on Main Street. Marion is known for its scenic beauty and named after the American Revolutionary War officer, Francis Marion. After soaking in the incredible views and history, guests make their way back to Tazewell, the scenic gateway to the heart of the Appalachians. Once guests have experienced the infamous “Back of the Dragon,” no adventure will ever compare.
