Bad news, I checked w/the Community Association, no scooters, at all, w/o authorization.

The KICA has these rules for safety on the "leisure trails", which are actually designated as "bicycle paths" The bike paths are narrow, with no shoulders in most places and low visibility around the many curves through the forest.

People walking or jogging for fitness are permitted on the bike paths, with the reminder to watch (and listen) for bikes and the assumption that an able bodied walker can move to the side or jump out of the way when a big group of cyclers, many of which are family groups with children just learning to ride, come through.

Unfortunately, a slow moving mobility scooter would be a significant obstacle to bikes. Your mother would have difficulty getting out of the way; and she - as well as others - could be badly hurt if she were hit or toppled.

And, from many rentals, you'd have to take a mobility scooter on the street, to get to the bike path.

We're always crusing around the island on our beach buggy with no issues. With how much we pay in HOA dues I think they are fine with it. We have it registered and everything.
