“A very challenging ride and very beautiful ride on the south side of Oahu.”— Leslie Kehmeier
The route is technical - expect sections of hike-a-bike. The second half of the trail has few rideable sections making the lower half the most popular part of the trail.
Manana is accessed through a neighborhood. Be courteous to the locals and exercise good judgement when parking your car.
Stay left a major unsigned trail junction and continue steep punchy climbs to a ridge. The forest opens up here and you'll see great views all around. The ridge is just as challenging as the lower reaches of the trail. Rather than roots, you'll encounter water bars, steep ups and downs, occasional deep ruts and exposed sections.
You'll reach the turnaround point at a beautiful overlook in a grassy meadow. There's a bench here, making it a great place to take a break before heading back.
For those who enjoy extremely steep and challenging trail; continue on from here to the end of the trail at Ko'olau Range Summit.
