Kahakapao West Loop Trail. This is the easier way to the top and connects with the Kahakapao East Loop Trail, Pineapple Express/Downhill Flow Trail and the Renegade Trail. The West Loop Trail climbs just over 2 miles and includes single track and plenty of places where the terrain flattens. It’s a two-way traffic trail that travels over some roots and a few switchbacks. It’s less technical than the East Loop Trail and also tends to be drier.
The Kahakapao Loop trail is located in Makawao State Forest Reserve, which is composed of over 2093 acres of land on the west facing slopes of Haleakala.

|reporter State crew was up yesterday clearing the blow downs. All good now. Except the wind is still strong and that probably won't be it for blow downs.|
