I find dirt/gravel roads from county DOT maps. Google DOT County Maps with a state name and you can go from there.

Most states have these online in PDF formats.

Guess he doesn't have the e-mail notification set up like I do.................... Heck not only did I tell him which maps but where to get them. There are more State Forrest Roads in Pennsylvania than you could ever ride. I wanted to put him on some that are not only all day trips but scenic also.

I am checkin the dot maps but so far they don't so any in pa. Now I have only checked a couple of countys but nothin. They all show as secondary roads. I am in the process of downloading a county where I know there are a lot of dirt and gravel to see if it will show up there. It seems these maps for pa countys aren't very detailed. I'll keep lookin though.
thanks

Yes I know it's an old thread but figured I'd add to it if anyone else is looking, like myself.

I was trying to pick up some clues from the page. Seems like ya gotta get to a layers thing but I can't find a way to get to it.
If I could find the key sure would be interesting. I did notice that it is a little out of date though. That's why it would be good to find out how to work it.
