Atlanta to Florida Dual Sport Route

This is a route I've mapped out and ridden twice.The western section north of Butler (the center of the X) is mostly unpaved up to Brooks and then is just scenic Southern pavement pavement the rest of the way north. The eastern section north of Butler is highway. South of Butler the routes are mostly dirt though the vast majority is GS friendly. In fact I've ridden it on both a light thumper and a GS and not surprisingly I found the GS the more enjoyable ride. This is an incredibly scenic way to head south from Atlanta. Take your time.

South of Butler on the western route is a Skull Waypoint. This is an area that has not been fully explored yet. The roads are not as the maps claim and I have yet found a way out so be careful in there.

I should mention that the northern Florida track I got from another inmate TreeManG23. Many thanks to him.

17 hours total time from Atlanta to do the figure 8. The left track takes about 8 hours, the right track about 7 hours, the bottom part about 2 hours. I do it in two days and spend the night on the Riviera . It could be done faster if you were serious and not stopping to look around, investigate, and photograph. Maybe 15 hours if you were trying to do it fast and safe.

At least 50% of mileage and 75% of the time spent. Look at the photos on the map (click on them). It seems like it's all dirt while riding it, but it takes a while to get to dirt from Atlanta, and there is a stretch in South Georgia on the left track that has a roughly 20 mile stretch of tarmac, but it is completely deserted and I hit it at 80 at least. Not a soul around, Old Hwy Such and Such. Great stuff really!

I'm in Southeast Alabama... don't really have the desire/need to go all the way to Hot Lanta for that type ride. I'll ride dirt all day long. Sand is tiring.

So its feasible to do it over a weekend leaving early on a Sat and staying somewhere on the southern portion and then riding home Sunday?

Certainly. It's a two day trip. Food is scarce and you need about 170 miles of range unless you want to take gas detours. Bring a sandwich with you. Remember the east track north of Butler is highway, so it's really the give up point on the way home.

Cool, may try this this fall/winter if we can squeeze it in sometime.

Planning on running this next weekend with a friend. Any additional words of wisdom? Any good spots in particular to camp out along the way?

Just got back from running this. Starting and ending from Marietta Ga, my odo read just under 850 total miles. The tracks are pretty much spot on, with only one small issue. There was one dirt road that was posted as "Private Keep out" We decided to go ahead anyways as it looked like a short stretch, but the other end was gated and locked with no easy way around. We just back tracked a little and took a different dirt road.

Thanks so much for putting this together, we had an absolute blast!

I tried to do a portion of it last week, down to where go it goes past lake blacksheer and back. I was coming from Rome, so I didn't try to navigate the route until I got to the brown "dirt starts here" on the route. So it comes up and says my maps are too old for this file and while I could see the route, the route line would be way off somewhere eventhough I was on the right road. I rode a whole bunch of dirt/sand though.
