“The west side of the Kahakapao Loop - singletrack through diverse forest.”— Leslie Kehmeier
After climbing a short pitch, the route continues to descend gradually through a series of turns. The forest through this side of the Kahakapao Loop tends to be more open. The trail is also a bit drier.
The trail crisscrosses an old doubletrack route so watch for the red badges on the trees to stay on the singletrack.
Kahakapao West finishes through a beautiful section of verdant green jungle filled with more ferns and moss covered rocks.
