On a sunny dry day is when this loop is at its best, very green, beautiful ferns and trees lining the trail. All dirt with roots and rocks protruding in many sections making this a very technical fun ride close to Kona town.
You'll start on Old Hao Rd, a flowy/fast singletrack/fireroad for 1.8mi then ascend on Pig Skull trail. Pig Skull trail is a tough climb, you might need to hike a bike a few sections, look out for Guava (yellow golfball to tennis ball sized fruit. a good sugar buzz) (this is my favorite trail to descend on). Once you hit the upper fence line you'll be on a fireroad, which is Flat Line Trail. Flat Line is fast and flowy with loose rock and some lilikoi fruit along the way. There will be a fork in the road (obvious), the fireroad down meets up with Old Hao Rd. (a good bail out point) The singletrack will lead up to Jurassic Park Trail. Jurassic Park is a tight technical descent to a dead end street where you can park you car. Just before Jurassic Park terminates at the street, there is a trail peeling off to the right before the trail poster board. This trail is Tree Stumps. This is a very difficult technical descent through rocky rooty jungle and meets up along Old Hao Rd. which will then take you back to your car. You can ride this loop any way you want but the only places you can park are at Hao St and Makahi St. dead end (Jurassic Park trailhead)
