looking for the twisties
Can't beat GoogleEarth, zoom in and find whatever you need. Places to camp, motels, food and fuel, twisted roads. Check out the topography and elevation changes, find the highest points in the pass, find the scenic lookouts and pull-offs etc. It's even possible to differentiate between pavement or gravel with reasonable certainty.
Store the most interesting Googleearth coordinates into your GPS as waypoints; then just connect the wps and you've got a route.
Having enough detailed maps can be expensive.
