Off road maps

Ok guys - I have this new (to me) KLR and now I'm ready to hit the trails. Can anyone help me find the best rides in N. Ga.? I'm putting on a GPS so if you have waypoints that would be great. Thanks

Half the fun is finding them yourself. I just like going out, picking a road and seeing where it goes.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

Hey Goldo,, Im Not From GA But one thing you can do to get heading in the right direction is go to google.com/maps and look VIA satellite for places that look like the terraine your looking for, plus it will have camp sites and other stuff worth knowing.. But like KLR4ever said Just starting in any direction and Driving until you see a place worth turing in and checking out is what I do the Most.

Last fall I purchased TOPO US 100K for my Garmin. It least for NY it has most back and seasonal roads. Iíve only had the opportunity to use it a few times on my bike but it worked great for snowmobiling. I did mark many miles of sled trails last winter and am eager to see what these look like without four feet of snow.

I was down your area last year (I regret not having my bike with me) and saw a few KLRs and many jeeps and 4x4 trucks covered in dirt & mud. It looks like a prime area for riding. Have you taken the bike down the Dragon yet?

Try these... the FS road Maps are good... Many of the County DOT maps are out of date and you'll find roads marked as dirt that are now paved.

If I had more than 15 posts, I'd give you links

can't seem to find any posts on this, but you can go to the USGS web site and download, or buy paper topo maps
