The trails themselves were both thrilling and not so hard to follow. Its important to remember that lots of roots are exposed and I had a pretty big crash over a fallen tree. The trail maps you include are pretty hard to follow...hard to tell what is beginner and what is advanced, so we just went all over. The trails are not well marked at intersections, so on the first trip, without a compass its hard to navigate and get back to paved surfaces if you need to...like to get a bandage!! The beaches are beautiful and not crowded...I loved relaxing while my husband took a spin on the beach...new to us (biking on the beach).
