Basically what worldslayer said, I could give you the same tips as time did, however you'd get much better feedback if I could actually see your maps.

Here are a few pointers on routes though. Don't make huge sees of grass, it will not add difficulty to the map, only frustration.

Using ledges can be a great way to make backtracking easier.

Vary with the terrain. You can use elevation of water to add to create more interesting maps, don't go over the top though. Same goes with flowers and rocks.

Unless you're making cliffs or chasms, try avoiding one tile wide paths.

Like time said, don't leave to much space open, walk through your map and see if you can find your way around easily.
