I'm headed to Ellijay for the ADV dinner on Saturday and am looking for route suggestions. I have a rough (very rough) plan but am looking for inputs of places to see and roads to ride. My plan is to Leave Huntsville around 9:00 am (CST) and head east on 72 - 35 - 40 to Cloudmont ski area. A ski area in Alabama is just something I have to see. Then ride to Mentone and head down through Little River Canyon. From there I have no plan except to find my way to Chatsworth and ride over 2/52 to Ellijay. I'd like to stay mostly on the pavement but a little easy gravel or dirt is OK, I won't be on a dual sport The less traffic and the more curves the better. As you can see, I have plenty of time, around 7 1/2 hours, so I have time to kill and don't need to take the most direct route. Nothing on this route is set in stone and I'd consider a completely different route. Any suggestions?
