Review: Interesting trail system with lots of options and plenty of variety. Confusing at times and it takes multiple rides to learn your way around. The piney areas shed water well, but the rest, especially in the valleys, turns to unrideable slick muck with just a little moisture. The climbs really aren't that bad and this is a relatively easy place to earn some vertical for some exciting descents.

Review: Loved riding here. Lots of climbing and some long, fun descents. Pretty straight forward single track; nothing to twisty as the trees don't grow close together. It's easy to get lost; few trails are marked and I wasn't able to find an online trail map. Thanks to the local hiker who pointed me back out. The ground is covered with pine needles which can feel "loose" on carving turns. I would definitely ride here again. I parked at the trail head at the end of Wilinau Road.

Review: This is the first mountain biking I've done on Oahu and I really cannot compare it to anything I have seen in CO, NY, OH, or PA. Overall, it is a very manageable trail system, with generally intermediate terrain and looping trails that all lead back to the same area. The surface ranged from sand and small rocks, to slippery dry dirt with pine needles. Some trails are as wide as roads and some are moderately narrow singletrack. Overall, very nice place to bike with a variety of riders.

Review: The loop and jeep road branch off in all kinds of directions. It's pretty easy to make your way back to the trail head so feel free to explore the area. There are small jumps and named single track sections that weave through the pine trees near the Boys Scout Campground, but there is a lot of slippery straw on the ground. I found a couple of steep drop-off sections and some "advanced" lines that I look forward to exploring more. Brought the gf here and she cruised the jeep road as I went exploring off the trail, and it was easy to meet up together down the end of each run.

Review: An extremely long network of trails that offer something for everyone, from 25 foot drops to casual rides with the family. I love this area.

Review: I only give this a five because this never ending network of trails offers something to every level of rider from a casual ride with the kids to 25 foot drops on your DH rig. You can ride for hours on end on all of the very well marked trails without getting bored. Along the way you can keep your mind off of the uphills by counting all of the old bath tubs.
