FWIW If you run the route as an offroad route, it does not screw up the calcs like it does if you try to make it road route.
In fact I found it worked really well running as an offroad route.

We got to FS205 coming from the other direction, and I got concerned that it was going to be a dead end as the garmin road stops, but as you know it doesn't.

Also coming from the other direction, there were private road/no trespassing signs on the road leading up to FS 205.

I had considered doing a direct route (offroad), but then I learned how to build an overlay map.
That's the best thing I've learned in dealing with the cheaper garmin products, which is all I can afford.

We rode the Alabama section in clockwise direction earlier in the year, but then in August when we rode the Florida section, it was easier to just ride 15 miles down to Jackson county and ride it CCW, then continued Georgia section in November.
It's a good route, but I think it would be an improvement to use Treeman's Pine Mountain route instead of the SE Alabama section.

BTW - did you ride Charlies Creek and Flatland road on those bikes?
