Favorite Gravel Routes

Each of these favorite gravel road routes has a RideWithGPS map, a GPX File Download link, Cue Sheet link and a Runtastic Route link.  Click on the "View full route" link in the upper left corner on the RideWithGPS map to open a full page map with route details, cue sheet, export and social media sharing options.  Click the GPX File Download link to save the gpx file for export to a Garmin GPS unit or use with a smartphone cycling app.  The Cue Sheet link opens a page for a printable cue sheet of the route.  For use with Runtastic Road Bike or Runtastic Mountain Bike apps for Android and IOS, there is a Runtastic Route link.  Some routes also have a Strava Route link that can be used with the Strava app for navigation.

  1. Thanks for sharing all these great routes. I may check out a few this year.

  2. Dumb question, but new to gravel. Are most of these gravel trails closed to cars?

    1. No but part of the joy of gravel to me is the lack of cars. Pretty rare to see one and easy to hear and avoid.
