First we'll skate the cross-island trail which is a scenic, flat, well-paved, no-traffic, path across the north end of the island. It's about 5 miles each way, or 10 miles total! We'll stop for lunch so bring a picnic or pick something up nearby.
Then for those that want to, we will head 3.5 miles south to Matapeake State Park to the trailhead of the South Island Trail, and skate to Romancoke, which will be 14 miles round trip (7 miles each way)
There is a beach near the Matapeake parking area so if you're in the mood for a dip after a long skate, a beach towel and bathing suit would be a good idea too!
These are great paths for quad skaters! Friends on bikes are also encouraged.
Meet at 11 at the Cross-Island trailhead in Terrapin Nature Area.
