I have found information on some 2006 posts but am wondering if anyone has any more recent information about the bike trails in the Porkies. I have done some limited technical riding, but I will be with a friend who is fit and comfortable on her bike but has zero off-road experience and is not quite reluctant but is somewhat hesistant about getting off the pavement. We both have city or urban hybrids with semi-slick tires. We are a classic tortoise and hare duo; I love speed but my friend likes to mosey. I am wondering if the trails would be suitable for a non-intimidating, leisurely ride, friendly enough for a newbie. I can catch some wind another time : )
On a related note, I know there are park maps, but I'm just wondering if anyone has any firsthand suggestions or recommendations within the park for either backcountry camping or rustic cabins near the bike trails. Most of the trip we'll be hiking, but I feel like it'd be a shame to go there and miss out on the biking, even if we don't do much of it.
