Claw of the Dragon is a series of 5 loops that are in close proximity to Wytheville VA.
Backbone of the Dragon is one portion of one loop.
Suggest you google “Claw of the Dragon” and look at the various loops which are too detailed to get into on this forum.

Got it. Would make for a long day or will this be over how many days ? Good rides. The first time I did Rt. 16 was around 1983. The road was a little narrower then, and I was in a long nose Western Star pulling a 42 ft. flatbed. Total length 60 feet long. I was on Rt. 52 last fall between Wytheville and Bland Va. The section between Big Walker and Bland had deteriorated into a lot of lose gravel. Maybe it’s been resurfaced by now. Lots of twisties in that part of the country. Burkes Garden off Rt 61 east of Tazewell is different.
