We rented bikes and had a nice time. You had to street it to the trail from the shop, but otherwise it was a very nice ride along the trail but I would not want to do it in high winds of iffy weather,

The trail is full of hills, switchbacks, and is challenging...but you are rewarded with incredible views and a full tour of the park, from rolling dunes and the sea vistas to scrub pine forests and bogs. Def would not recommend for a first time or...More
