      Located on the northern slopes of the Pupukea Paumalu Forest Reserve, and sharing a slight overlap with the Ehukai Pillbox hike, Pupukea / Sunset Hills is a vast network of MTB-specific trails. These trails have something for everyone. It is a great place for beginner and expert riders alike.

      Access Info:
      Update 5/20/2018:

      Recently there have been conflicts with neighborhood residents over parking on the grass in front of their homes. Areas along Wilinau Rd have been tagged no parking; the NE corner of Wilinau and Makana (on the side of the trailhead) seems to be still allowing parking. Riders have been varying their parking in the neighborhood, or shuttling up from Kamehameha Hwy. If you choose to continue parking in the immediate vicinity please be respectful of the neighborhood.
