  • A heavily wooded six-mile loop trail, with many offshoots for bikers. They get a cool set-up here with several practice areas and even an air pump and toolkit as pictured. Very nice wide trail, covere...  read more »

  • 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!
  • can not be beat. world class riding, stunning beauty, several degrees colder when it is hot out. Pro-tip; there are signs on the mountain bike downhill trail that say not for hikers, horse riders, and uphill cyclists. Its not a suggestion! If you are with your kids, and any one of you isn't on a bike going down it, you are doing the wrong thing! 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
  • This place has The best Mountain Biking on Maui. Krank Cycles is 10 mins from The trail and has The best/cheapest full suspension mountain bike rentals on The island!
  • I had some friends who lived up against the forest reserve, and we had such fun running through here. The reserve is gorgeous with the trees and landscapes that surround you. This isn't something so much for tourists, but locals will have been through here at one point or another.
  • אהבתי יצא לי ליום ביום בהיר ככה כשהגענו למעלה היינו מעל העננים
