I'm looking for solid intel on places to #GOXPLOR in the southern-half of the Peach State. I know North Georgia like the back of my hand, but I'm afraid once I reach the Piedmont and Coastal Plains areas of the state, I'm not well versed. Doesn't have to be technical or even "off road" but I'm looking for as much off-pavement and off-highway travel as possible, and point-to-point (no dead-ends). Thanks in advance!

Areas of particular interest that I'm hoping you can help me with ...

  • Savannah / Brunswick area
  • Valdosta
  • Columbus
  • Waycross
  • Georgetown
  • Americus
  • Tifton
  • Bainbridge
  • Augusta
  • Sardis
  • Oconee

basically... anything south of the Columbus-Macon-Augusta line, but especially the Upper & Lower Coastal Plains regions.

Best place I can think of is to go explore the dirt roads West of the Okefenokee Swamp. I think that would be Clinch county. I spent a day over there exploring several years ago, but I can't really recommend any particular routes.

Watching this thread, I hope you get some good replies, because I'd like some good places nearby to go explore myself.

Bainbridge doesn’t have much to offer in my opinion. I grew up there. You can get on some county dirt roads and they will lead you all over the place. If you have a kayak you should check out spring creek. Good luck

There are miles upon miles of grated county roads in Southwest GA. Sometimes when I am heading places in the area, Garmin will send me down them as a faster route. Especially in Lee, Sumter, Macon and Oglethorpe Counties.

I’m in the Tifton/Valdosta area. Not much around here off-roading wise. We have our share of dirt roads so it depends on where you want to go. One of the frontier roads in the area was the Old Coffee Road that I believe ran from Savannah, GA to Port St Joe, FL. Portions of it are paved, some are dirt and some are gone. One day I hope to do some research and try and ride whats left of it.
