All Routes GPX format

All Routes PDF format 

Each route has TWO GPX file versions-
1. A "Standard" version with Way and Via points for Garmin zumo 660, 450, 550 and earlier models, other GPS brands.
2. A "Trip Planner" version designated by a "TP" suffix at the end of the file name. This version uses mostly shaping points for compatibility with Garmin zumo XT, 390 series, 590 series, as well as BMW Nav5 and Nav6. Be sure to use the TP version if you have one of these models or any Garmin GPS that uses the Trip Planner App on the device to access routes. "TP" versions usually work best with TomTOM and phone apps as well.


Navigation difficulty: AVERAGE
Distance: 207 miles
Lunch Stop: Mattie's Place, Burkes Garden, Virginia
Direction from Sparta: N COUNTERCLOCKWISE
Comments: The route starts out East from Sparta for a few miles onto some beautiful technical county roads before taking you back to US21 where you go North to Speedwell and on to Burkes Garden. Along the morning leg of the route you'll pick up US52 to Big Walker Lookout where you can enjoy beautiful valley views and climb the old fire tower. After crossing the Appalachian Trail, you head West on route 614, a beautiful twisty technical ride to route 61 and Burkes Garden road, another twisty delight.
In Burkes Garden, this year's lunch stop is at Mattie's Place where you can order all kinds of sandwiches on fresh homemade breads. (The sourdough is wonderful) After lunch you can do a loop around Burkes garden to see nice Amish farms and rural life. 
After Burkes Garden, the route heads West through Tazewell for a run down BF Buchanan highway route 16 to Sugar Grove where you pick up Flat Ridge road for many miles of technical fun. Near Mouth of Wilson you pick up route 93 and follow back to Sparta
