Mountain Biking Hau`ula Loop Trail

***   Add a review
#22 of 33 mountain bike trails in Hawaii
#9,417 in the world

Hau`ula Loop Trail begins on the right side of the access road, just past the hiker/hunter check-in station. Where the trail branches off, take the right fork which climbs up the adjoining ridge. It crosses Waipilopilo Gulch, then travels makai (towards the ocean) on the next ridge overlooking Kipapau Valley to return back across the gulch, around the makai side of the ridge, and rejoins the start of the trail. This trail goes through groves of planted ironwood. It also offers great views of Hau`ula and the ocean. Remnant native species in the Waipilopilo Gulch include lama, alahe`e, `ohi`a, hoawa, akia and a`ali`i. This trail is a good family trail. This trail traverses a public hunting area - hikers should exercise caution. Wear bright colored clothing and be aware that you may encounter hunters who may be hunting off trail - stay on the trail.

Getting there
From Kamehameha Highway in Hau`ula, turn onto Hau`ula Homestead Road (across from Hau`ula Beach Park). When the road makes a sharp curve to the left, continue straight onto the access road. Park along the road before the cable gate, taking care not to block the gate. Continue on foot past the gate and the hunter/hiker check-in station. Hau`ula Trail begins on the right side of the access road, just past the check-in station.

    I lived at the base of this loop so I road it quite often. It's a quick ride but still a lot of fun. The wild lilikoi is the best part of the ride.
