Renegade Trail. This is the Throwback Thursday Trail. It’s the trail that started it all, the first mountain bike single track at the Makawao Forest Reserve Trails. The Renegade Trail is a two-way traffic trail and is as challenging to climb as it is to descend. There’s a lot of exposed off-camber roots, narrow trail sections, and hair-pin turns. One section borders the gulch and is extra challenging. Renegade is a true cross-country mountain bike trail.

Access Info

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.
