Planning my annual Spring trip which will include riding the Snake and the Back of the Dragon. I'll gladly accept any information, must-dos in the area, lunch recommendations, etc. The plan is to ride up to Mountain City, TN on Friday from Raleigh, NC. Thursday will consist of riding the Snake (421) from Mountain City to Bristol TN, then up Hwy 81 to Marion, VA and up the Back of the Dragon (16) to Tazewell, VA and then back roads back to Mountain City. I've ridden the Snake once before and enjoyed it much more than the Dragon. Plan on hitting up Backbone Rock and Shady Valley Country Store. Just wondering if there are anything else in that area anyone would recommend stopping at, especially in Marion or Tazewell.
