    My dad and I just rode part of the KAT today from Slade to Williamson and it was a blast. Tomorrow were heading on towards jellico and I'm sure it will be just as great. We're staying at Sweet Dreams Inn here in Williamson and it's a nice place, also this was the only hotel we could find that we could stay on the bottom floor and keep an eye on our bikes.

    It's a LONG haul to Jellico from Williamson, we normally only make it to Harlan.

    Sorry about the confusion but were just wanting to make it to Jellico by Sun and start heading back home to Berea Ky from there.

    This is amazing! Gonna do this in two weeks with 6 GSes. Which file should I use? Canonshot or the original? I'm still a gps noob.

    I am so so so thankful for your service to us riders!

    Thanks for taking the time to put this together and keep it updated.

    I'm hoping to do the Daniel Boone National Forest portion of the KAT this year. I'm coming from Ohio and plan to cross the river at Portsmouth. I was wondering if you had enough info to recommend an off-pavement route from where 377 enters in the north down to Slade.

    Sorry, I don't have anything that far north but this is a nice little trail just north of Slade. Would make a good starting point.

    Thanks! Any little bit helps.

    Are the National Forest vehicle use maps worth a damn when trying to determine what's paved and what's dirt?

    8 days until departure from Cincy. Can't wait. I think we will take the scenic western side first and return on the difficult eastern side.

    This application can help if the roads are state and/or county maintained -

    http://maps.kytc.ky.gov/photolog/?config=LocalRoads

    Gravel and dirt roads are shown as dashed blue lines. Forest Service roads may not be shown as no KY funds go toward their maintenance, but many roads in the Daniel Boone are in fact county roads.
