Kealia Trail is the gnarliest downhill trail on Oahu. Rocky, tight switchbacks, cliffs, prepare to be tested. It's also a popular hiking trail so be sure to yield and be polite. Most of the hikers are stoked to see mountain bikers and can't believe anyone would be crazy enough to ride it.

 Fun trail, awesome views. Lots of crazy exposure and sharp hairpin bends on even sharper exposed rocks. Lots of gnarly, technical bits leading into the corners, but nothing that can't be walked around if you're so inclined. Main feature/hazard? Hikers. It's barely wide enough in some spots to pass, so you have to practice some good etiquette. The feeder roads to get to the start of this are fun, but can be hilariously slick with any sort of rainfall. So, I guess they're always slick? It was good fun on a rented AM bike for someone more used to the BC north shore.
