The Peacock to Kealia Loop is an island favorite. When locals want a technically and physically challenging ride, this is it. The loop starts at the Dillingham Airfield Tower parking lot (best place to park). From there you ride on the road a few miles to the start of the Mokuleia Access Road where the fun begins...

The access road is actually nasty 4 mile paved climb in the sun. Once the pain is over you hit the dirt on the Mokuleia Firebreak Road. This road is full of climbs, descents and beautiful scenery. Eventually you'll reach the Kuaokala Ridge Trail and some of the most amazing singletrack on the island. After enjoying the singletrack you get another long fireroad climb. The good news is once finished you'll be at the top of one of the best descents on the island, Kealia Trail! The first 1.5 miles is a super fast, steep fireroad descent. You'll run into some picnic tables and then the singletrack begins.

Beware that Kealia is the most technical descent on Oahu. It's rock, steep, tight switchback and cliffs. Not for the feint of heart. It's also a blast.

This loop done all together makes for such a great 4 hours of riding. It's a little bit of everything (AM, XC, DH).
