Gravel to Pavé
100 Miles of Hell
Hell is fun. Right?!? So maybe not hell, but it wouldn’t be Border Wars without featuring a full 50/50 blend of the craziest gravel in GA and AL. We’re talking 8,000 feet of climbing and 40-ish gravel segments, including all the dirt, sand, gravel and streams you can handle. This is a rough-riding adventure with limited SAG support, soul-crushing time cuts, and the kind of field limits that guarantee you plenty of alone time to appreciate the scenery. We fully admit it’s not for everyone, and that’s no accident. To finish is an accomplishment. To win cements your name among the best of the best. You’ll love how much you hate this ride.

This is a rough version of the 2024 route. There is a bridge that just became out towards the beginning of all the routes that we are working to resolve. More information will become available as we work with the county, and or, find a different solution. Even if the route were to stay like this, it’s a killer route that retains the 50/50 GA/AL mix and still at 70% gravel.
