If you decide Plymouth can wait, explore the trails through the park, including the paved bike path (a good portion of this ride) or explore the many horse / hiking / biking trails that wind through the dense forest. The forest is a prime area for ticks, so be sure to wear bug repellent or be extra vigilant when checking after a ride through the woods. There are two distinct parts to this ride: the smooth, sedate part; and the more challenging, lung-busting, leg-pumping part. The easier section is made up of smooth, almost pristine asphalt bike paths. These paths wind through the forest occasionally crossing a bridle path or road. The difficult section is sandy, rocky, and rutted.
