If you want some gravel try this one. it aught to be good for a day trip.
Head toward Taaladega and hop on 77 south. about halfway to Ashland turn left/east on to CR209 (Horns Lake Road)
about a mile or so in turn left onto Skyline Drive at the cemetary it turns to gravel shortly thereafter. Stay on Skyline until it meets 181 and turns to pavement.
Take the pig trail back down. SR 281 (Cheaha Rd). This one is pavement, but its pretty rough.
Have a good time.
