NE Georgia route question

I built a route in BaseCamp that I'm not sure is doable. By this I mean that some of the roads don't show up in GoogleMaps. I'm hoping someone here that is familiar with the area can confirm my route.

From Chattsworth, the route heads over Ft Mtn and then turns left onto:

Conasauga rd then right onto

Old CCC Camp rd then left back onto

Conasauga rd then right onto

NF-64 then right onto

2 up to

Tumbling Creek rd ( also listed as NF 22-2 in BC ) then left onto

Grassy rd ( also listed as NF 221 in BC )

BC shows NF 221 turning into just 221. I'm planning on taking this north around Big Frog mtn. This is the section that doesn't exist in GoogleMaps.

From 221, the route turns left onto

Big Frog rd ( which appears to turn into Big Frog Loop rd ) then left onto

Peavine Sheeds Creek rd to

J Wilson rd to

Ball Play to

411 back to Chatsworth.


Is this a complete loop or are do some of these roads no longer exist? If this isn't a complete loop can someone suggest some alternate roads in the area?

Thanks,

rodney

Ride there and find out, Rodney. Some of my best rides have begun with uncertainty, finding my way, and exploring. You find the coolest stuff without planning for it. Pack a lunch, enjoy the scenery, and be glad for the part of the world you live in.

I have a group ride planned and kinda wanted to have the route sorted out prior. We can wing-it, though...

I ride that area frequently 2-up on a Super Tenere. You shouldn't have any problems. There's nothing up there that is difficult unless you somehow get off track and go down Tibbs or Windy Gap OHV trails. All of the routes you've named are open, but some close in winter.

Hey MrTwisty, long time no see. I'm not sure if you remember me. I rode with you and the FJR crowd a couple of times. I was riding a blue FZ6. I'm riding a white 2012 DL650 now.

Thanks for the update.

Well, it was really more like chasing him than really riding with him.

I look forward to riding with you again soon.
