Woah, check this out - it's traffic volume for each major road in PA! This would be great if you are planning a ride and want to avoid cars.

this map is not as accurate as they think it is. I know when I build the Trans PA Trail I used this as a source, but in some areas 50% or more of the roads they show as unimproved have now been paved.

and they don't include the roads in the State Forest which is where you find the best unimproved roads.

I agree their are still a lot of dirt roads not on that map... But it's still a lot of potential unimproved roads to explore

apparently no one has shown this map to Garmin or my oregon 450 because it keeps taking me on dirt roads when i do NOT want to be on them ! and i have it set to avoid dirt roads.
