Timberline

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Timberline is a private nature Camp located at the top of Makakilo drive. It was once only hiking trails but thanks to the hard work of the guys at Shaka Bike in Kapolei, there is now a good start of a trail system. In order to ride there, you need to go to Shaka and fill out a waiver, it will cost you 20 bucks for the year and 2 bucks each time you go up. Sounds like a hassel and it can be, but Jordan and his wife will meet you if need be to get your papers filled out and get you the code. Yes there is a coded gate that you must pass. This is nice, as you know your stuff is not going to be pilfered like at Manana or other places. There is a good XC type trail that is fairly well cut, and several other freeride/DH areas that will suit just about anyone. There are many washes that provide flowing drops and ledges with good clear landings. This will be a premier place to ride if there can be more interest generated. There are also great views of Nanakuli Valley as well as the whole Wainea Coast over Ko''olina. I would recommend these trails to any who are interested in technical, varied terrain, who want a good workout mixed with some pretty hardcore freeride and downhill. You can get by with 3-4 inches of travel but 6 will make this place plush. I am riding a Cannondale Prophet and did well. Give the guys at Shaka a call if you want to ride.

Summary:
Go with someone who knows they trail, grabbed a map at the base and there were some areas that did not jive on the way down. Rode up to the bunker, it was cloudy which killed the view, it was hike a bike up to the top, downed trees to scramble over in differant parts on the way up, down was a blast. Disc brakes saved my bacon a couple times on the way down.

Summary:
Awesome trail, one of the best, if not the best, that I have ridden in HI. The steep push up is worth the steep ride back down. There are lots of little hidden drops to find and play in so enjoy searching. If you are planning on going up ride with someone who has ridden it before or you may get lost.

Recommended Route:
Go all the way up to the bunker.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
makakilo (just stop in at SHAKA BIKES AND BOARDS for more info)
