About This Blog

This Blog contains information on Gravel/Dirt road routes in Virginia , Maryland, Southern Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Also some links to Gravel/Dirt road databases (for planning your own route). Mainly close to the Washington D.C. Metro area. There will not be a lot of new posts. But the posts will be updated regularly. New posts will be added only when there is a new area needed to be added. I hope this will be helpful.

Great Info

Here is a link to online West Virginia County Maps.The maps show what is suppose to be gravel roads. I am working on another Google Map database from Preston, Monongalia, Tucker and Taylor Counties. http://goo.gl/maps/11Bpp Why a another google database? I find it easier to plan route routes looking at google maps. Why there? My Mother in-law lives near there. It will give me a better excuse to visit. I can't wait to check some of them out.

Here is a link to Charlottesville Bike Clubs website. https://www.cvillebikeclub.org/archive/cbc/maps.htm They have posted up some gravel routes around the Charlottesville area. Maps and Que Sheets, very nice.

Here is the link to the Virginia Dept. of Transportation's county maps. They are not online but they are cheap to buy. 5o cents each or $35 for the whole State. They are a little out of date, some of the roads they say are gravel are actually paved now. All the better reason to have a google map database for accuracy.VDOT County Maps



  1. Hi DKeg -

    Great work on the blog. I share a similar interest with you in identifying roads that are anything but asphalt in VA & WV. I have a project called the Blue Ridge Trail that I have been working on for awhile - that is mainly geared toward dual sport motorcycle riders - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=632804. I am error cooled on that forum.

    I have a bunch of data and GIS sets I have compiled over the years that I would be open to sharing. In any event keep up the good work.

  3. Dkeg, check out gravelmap.com. It works in basically the same way as Google Maps databases but simplifies the whole process. The site itself is very new so please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions or comments.
