Good deal! I think the one I found was created by an individual as opposed to a state DOT like the Va is you found.

I found this one just now, broken down by State/county! This one is awesome! Has pictures and such for some of the roads.

Cool stuff. With a new (to me) dualsport in the shed, I'll be making more of an effort to get out and ride some dirtroads this season.

What would be nice would be a map that included forest roads too. I don't know if you can still get the maps from Delorme and such that put those roads in a specific color. I haven't bought a paper map in more than 20 years... Kind of sad, actually.
I used to look at them to find interesting routes you wouldn't likely find today. There are so many neat "roads" in the va/wv mountains nearby.

While searching for dirt roads another thing that might help is looking for sites with bicycle routes. That's actually what I use the dirt/gravel roads for near home.
