MOUNTAIN BIKING: Kealia Trail

← HI HONOKOHAU STREAM HONOKOHAU MAUI HI Single Tracks →

Description

This particular trail is an out and back. It does link up with Peacock Flats at the top, where you will find a picnic table and covering, however this is an individual trail. Out and back is 3.4 miles. You will have to hike/climb up much of it if you go this route. Usually we park at Dilingham Field and then ride out to Peacock Flats and take Kealia down. The trail is very rocky, packed dirt, some tight sections with trees and large boulders/rocks, tight switchbacks, a few areas to get air if you want, great scenic views, and downright fun. (Quoted form mtbhawaii.com "Kealia is switchback after switchback down the side of a cliff face. Steep, rocky, sharp corners with drop offs. Know your limits and walk if you need too. Kealia Trail is a gem, some of the best technical single track on the island. You will get to the bottom and look back up at the mountain and think, "How did I just ride down that!")<br />
<br />
This is about as true as it gets. A must ride!
