I'm looking for a source of good maps for forest service roads in southeast Tennessee and southwestern North Carolina and any suggestions you may have about good dirt/gravel roads in those areas.

You can usually find most of the gravel and fire / forest service roads in CNNA, Google Earth, Google Maps, but you have to zoom way in. The fire / forest service roads are usually notated by a broken lined road. It is hard to tell the difference between a rural back road that is paved versus one that is gravel. Google Earth can sometimes help if the road does not have a full forest canopy over it.

I have a map titled Recreational Guide North Georgia Wildlife Management Area & Appalachian Trail that was made by AtlanticMapping.com. However, after viewing their site, it appears that they serve Ga only.

This site has pdf maps:
TWRA GIS - Wildlife Management Area Index

Although, this might be a better resource for what you are looking for:
Dual Sport Maps and GPS Resources

Once you get on that site click on GPX Files near the top left and then scroll in on the map. There are many tracks for Tn.


I hope this helps...

Butler maps is supposed to be coming out with a southeast map very soon. From what I can tell its supposed to have paved and unpaved roads marked on it. I have never seen one of their maps, but I think I will give it a try. I think it is supposed to start printing this week.

I looked at their website but didn't see a southeast map.
Do you have another source of information. I'd give it a try too.

backroad maps

You can get free download of USGS maps of all types here. All roads may not be named:
The USGS Store - One stop shop for all your maps, world, United States, state, wall decor, historic, planetary, topographic, trail, hiking, foreign, satellite, digital

Forest Service Maps, which do have roads named, including seasonal roads, old gated logging roads and all kinds of maps can be found here:
All Maps | US Forest Service

If I had time I would post some specific examples as I've downloaded areas of Chattahoochee NF, Southern Nantahala NF, Cherokee NF, Pisgah NF and loads of other stuff.
