hauula loop trail

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

slippery rocks and roots,a little tough going up,you may have to walk a little . Awsome scenery,you go over three streams, look out to the ocean to your left,once you make it to the top you will look out over kaipapau valley. the down hill is great taken cautiously, a couple sharp turns and cliffs can put you in a real hurting. i dont reccommend riding while wet or raining but on an average day you will have a blast! oh yeah watch out for hikers, i saw a total of five the whole afternoon.

Summary:
Can't believe there are only 2 reviews. Rode it today the 5th of July. Yup the 1 mile up is pretty tuf--you may hike a bike some of it---going down is smoooth for the most part but some cliff places to take care on. The views are incredible and I'd say in the two months I've lived on HI this is the best to bike--I've tried Kaena Point (too easy), Aiea Loop-(-HUGE roots and big felled trees), Mililani (illegal and the guards are out to chase ya off). A variety of terrain--some ups, some downs, roote, a few rocky areas, some smooth pine needle covered stretches that are really awesome, a few leafy areas-just can't be beat. There were several hikers, and several other biking couples. Acrossed from Kam Hwy Northeast shore area. The parking area can get crowded. Went late morning and it was not too hot. Just pack a gatorade solution in the camelbak. Even Texas "flatlanders" like myself can enjoy this trail. Not tooo difficult.
Stop by Giovanis original White Shrimp Truck on the way back and get the shrimp scampi with some hot spicy sauce on the side---mmmm.

Recommended Route:

Summary:
This is a short but beautiful trail. Either direction you ride it, you'll have some climbing to do. Not very technical for more experienced riders, but a super fun slice of tropical singletrack perfection. Watch for hikers on the downhill especially on the weekends. It can be very slippery in some sections near stream crossings, so be carefull. Don't bother riding this trail if it's been raining. You'll just tear it up and probably won't have much fun anyhow. I usually ride this loop at least 3 or 4 times each time I go there since it's only about three or so miles long. It's a fun one to take the wife and dogs hiking on.

Recommended Route:
It's fun both directions, but be prepared for a good climb.

from start to finish the trail is fun. the uphill is a little bitch but it is definitly worth it. there are several roots, rocks and sharp turns .you will pass a total of three stream and some small waterfalls its a scenic trail that is used by some hikers . there was very few hikers on the saturday that we went. use caution on this trail when raining or wet, i dont reccommed riding when wet. oh yeah watch the cliffs there is som steep ones!

Recommended Route:
