Its called the "Dragons Back" by some. I call it outstanding, its Rt 16. I rode it from Beckley WV South to Rt 658 in Va. though the road runs north and south your compass dial won't miss any points along its arc. The road is twisty and challenging, beautiful and lightly travelled. The hills south of Tazewell Va. were covered in kudzu, an invasive plant which smothers everything in its path, was present for a few miles and gave the area a surrealistic vibe as we passed through in the early morning hours and the moon was more present than the sun. Beyond that there was a good amount of gravel in the corners, caution is warranted. Looking to get to Rt 58 I mapped out rt 658 - and 601 ( the map shows a bit different path) both are really amazing. I was not on 733 or 711.
