I am contemplating a ride off of R70 between Miyagase and Yabitsu. If anyone has ridden or walked the section outlined in the yellow box, could you tell me what that's like? Is this mostly a hiking trail or is some or most of it bike-able? Any input would be appreciated.
I chickened out. After reading that parts of the trail can be crowded with hikers, and that some of it has chains for hikers to hold on to, sounds like the better part of valor to not try and lug my bike over the trail (as you said). Sounds like a bad move. So... I'll just enjoy Yabitsu again and do a bit of exploring.
