  • Extreme hike with so many trails. Definitely need more than a couple of hours to do this. Overall this was amazing.
  • The climb up to ride down the pineapple express is well worth it. very well maintained trail and very good flow.
  • Leisurely 6-mile hike features native flora and fun bike trails. You can also take your horse. Go in the summer when the Kahili ginger are in bloom. The smell is intoxicating!

If I almost run over your kid landing a blind jump, its because over-entitled yuppy parents raising over-entitled bratty kids are doing the wrong thing. Please don't be those people
