Devils Triangle

There is a lot more elevation change than we see on the Dragon which makes some of the switchbacks a little tricky .... be sure to work the clutch, brake and throttle to keep your RPMs up on these uphills. If you don't there is a good chance of stalling. If you are better at downhill switchbacks then ride the Triange in a clockwise direction.

The best sections are at each end. The middle section has a few good spots with twisties, but you'll need to watch for slow moving cars/trucks and fast moving ATVs.

There is no place for gas or food on 116 between Petros and Oliver Springs unless you want to chance The Hut Drive In Deli.

If you are a newbie and not used to sharp uphill/downhill curves then you should stay away from this challenging roadway. We think the dangers here are much greater than the Dragon.

Watch-out for railings, downhill momentum, deep ruts on the side of the road, steep hillsides if you miss a corner, uneven pavement (especially in the east bound lane), slower traffic, and wild ATVers.
