Description

Skyline starts from a gate just outside Haleakala National Park. Head downhill on paved road with the Big Island in the distance. The route turns right and turns to cinder and pumice stone, a surface that can get extremely technical at times.

Skyline turns back to the left after is traverse below the observatory buildings and then screams across a moonscape. With earth tones in front of you and the deep below of the Pacific Ocean below, it's likely to be one of the most unique landscapes you can experience on a bike.

The route descends through a series of switchbacks above the Kula Forest Reserve before it reaches Mamane trail.

Turn right to enjoy a fun singletrack descent on Mamane or continue on to access the Waipoli doubletrack.

Great ride! Haven't ridden it in over 11 yrs and it's still my favorite ride.

Great ride from Haleakala top, down some 7,000ft to highway. Pumice and cinder are greatest challenge near start, full suspension bike is recommended. 18mi — 1h 10m
