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
