Seasonal Roads in NE

Hi All, i've been enjoying the site and wanted to finally post.

Is their any good way to find that nastiest dirt roads that are still legal to travel on? Is there any software that highlights seasonal roads? Right now i'm trying to find em using CN and Gazatteer topos for NY, VT, MA. Big bike friendly roads are nice, but every once and a while i like to give me and my little bike a workout.

Bad question? Is the only way to find seasonal roads is to call town by town?

No - just been asked and answered multiple times. Use Google to search ADV.

The simple answer is "no" based on prior experience, but there may be something new out there.

Yeah, i searched before posting as i know it's a sin not too. I used key words "seasonal roads" as that is what i was after and didn't find anything. It was worth a shot, thanks for the reply

I've found a few of them in MA, VT, and NH just by following Garmin, but I wasn't looking for them. The Gazetteer for Maine has far more info and larger maps than any other state. They're easier to pick out there.

that sounds pretty cool! I'll pick up the Maine gazetteer. Were they noted a particular way?

Get a delorme gazeteer for whatever state you want to ride in. Anything that's a dashed line is a good place to start.

maybe you guys can petition that Benchmark http://www.benchmarkmaps.com/ makes some eastern & southern states.
delorme is a COMPLETE joke of a map compared to what these guys are producing. the topography & cartography is stuning.
i gave away my gazeteers!
