Good ADV roads on the way to Barber Museum?

Hello all,

This question is mainly for people in and around the Tuscaloosa, AL area or nearby.

I am planning a 3-4 day road trip on my S10 from Baton Rouge to see the Barber Museum. Any good ADV type roads on the way or nearby worth spending some time on? Looks like there is some pretty substantial National Forest SE of Tuscaloosa.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

Best,
Andy
Baton Rouge, LA

I followed someone from Tuscaloosa to Maplesville once and we had good ride with quite a few good gravel roads. I was told that you could ride gravel all the way from Maplesville to Tuscaloosa, but I do not know the route. When are you going to be in the area?

You might consider riding from Barber to Mt Cheaha. Cheaha is the highest point in AL, and it is very scenic this time of year. If you decide to make the trip, plan a route from Barber on Hwy 25 toward Vincent, then toward Talladega to HWY281 or FS 600-2.

You might find some information at www.bamarides.com , but if you are coming this weekend, most of the bamarides group will be at gymkhana.

I might be able to meet you somewhere depending on what day you want to ride.

I know the areas around Cheaha, and willing to explore South of Tuscaloosa.
