    There's some gravel in the Kings Mountain National and State Parks in SC. Here's a ride I do occasionally from Crowder's Mountain State Park. Gravel portions are from about mile 10 thru 15 and then 16.5 thru 20. It's ok, but not awesome.

    Unfortunately it looks like NC has been on a mission to pave them all over the past 30 years. North Carolina spending a lot to pave its last dirt roads | Local/State | NewsObserver.com

    If you want to log some miles, I'd recommend the National Forests.
