The new section of the Foothills Parkway is scheduled to open on Saturday November 10, 2018. This new 16 mile addition creates a 33 mile scenic roadway from US 129 to Wears Valley near Pigeon Forge. Under construction since 1966 this roadway will have only two access points, one on US 321 west of Townsend at the northern end of the existing Foothills Parkway, and the other on US 321 in Wears Valley. Be advised that the Foothills Parkway will likely close during inclement weather.
Our Tail of the Dragon T-Shirt Shack plans to stay open through Sunday November 11 and possibly through Sunday November 18 weather permitting. We will reopen in March 2019. In the meantime you can order our merchandise on our on-line store.
