For 2015, Georgia Overland has started fresh with a brand new website and the official launch of The Georgia Traverse and The Georgia Traverse .gpx file. The Georgia Traverse is a collection of county, state and Forest Service roads that comprise a (mostly) off-pavement route across North Georgia. It was designed to be traveled east to west, beginning at Burrells Ford Road along the Georgia / South Carolina border. The Georgia Traverse visits North Carolina and Tennessee before ending at the Georgia / Alabama border. The total mileage of all paved and unpaved sections is 390 miles, with 226 miles of unpaved road surfaces, 164 miles of pavement (40% of the paved miles found west of the Cohutta and Big Frog Wilderness Loop) and The Georgia Traverse includes over 500 waypoints.
I'm proud to relaunch Georgia Overland on an entirely new platform and I am excited to announce The Georgia Traverse waypoint and track .gpx files. If you are receiving this blog update via email, you will need to resubscribe on the new Georgia Overland site. Enjoy!
Georgia Overland will have an entirely new look and feel very soon. Stay tuned.
