The VDOT map only shows roads that are maintained by VDOT - so yes 100% public. If its not state maintained it is not on the map.
The Forest Roads are a bit more tricky - but I have the ground data for open roads straight from the Forest Service.
If you cobble a route together from USGS Quads and Garmin Maps you can be in a world of hurt due to private roads and out dated info. I am hoping to avoid all of that.
