happytrailstoyou may have hit it - Rockport to Leggett is as curvy as any road I've driven.

One to consider is 89 From Camp Richardson to DL Bliss state Park. The road around emerald bay is pretty curvy but the main thing is the straight drop off down the mountain on both sides of the road w/ emerald bay on one side and Cascade lake on the other.

Don't know the name of the highway - but we took the "scenic route" from Chattanoogo to Lake Lure, NC and the part getting to Ashville about did us in. I've never been car-sick in my life - but this almost did it!!!!

Practically all the Alp passes in Europe.
For the States I would say the road up Mount Washington in the White mountains N.Hampshire and perhaps The going to the sun road inGlacier N.Park but they are small fry compared to the Alps and especially the three Dolomites passes.Paul

The Coronadotrail, in the eastern part of Arizona.Not only winding, but also a big heightdifference.

Dedicated in 1926, the roadway provides a route for tourists seeking the beauty of the forests and its wildlife, but few people either then or now have taken advantage of it. Often fewer than 100 cars a day use the highway. The reason partly lies in its remote location near the New Mexican border and partly because the drive is very slow going. It takes 4 hours or more to traverse its 123 miles of switchback after switchback, but the adventure is clearly worth the effort. The Coronado Trail Scenic Road climbs 4,300 feet in elevation through a wilderness region that is home to three endangered mammals, three endangered birds and two endangered fish.

I drove part of the Merrit Parkway - got rerouted from I-95 due to a tanker truck explosion in Bridgeport, Conn under and overpass which closed the interstate. It was dark though, so we didn't get to see much. That section at least wasn't very curvey.

Hi autumn_grace

My pick is a paved road off of highway 299 in Trinity County it goes from Hawkins Bar to Denny. Beats 36, Hana, Big Sur or any other section of 1 in California.

Have Fun

Also in Arizona - hwy 89A from Flagstaff thru Oak Creek Canyon to sedona then to Jerome where you go over Mingus Mtn. In Prescott switch to Hwy 89 and go to Wickenburg

Try the Storm King highway which runs north along the Hudson. Especially impressive in the summer if you run into the masive thunderstorms for which the area is known.
