It depends how close you are going to get to the gravel. If its only far away then use normal mapping. If you are getting a bit nearer you might want to try displacement. If you are getting macro distances then modelling it will be better

If you need the actual geometry, you could give those two a try (haven't tried the second):

Check out 'Action Essentials' by Andrew Kramer- video co-pilot. I'm using them mapped onto planes right now and they look great.
