Making plans for a winter vacation in Hawaii and curious about the kind of mountain biking trails available for riding on Maui? Of course you'll want to relax enjoying the many beautiful beaches and year round summer weather! You've already booked the kids on the your sunrise crater tour with a bike ride down the volcano. Now, you are thinking you love mountain biking and would really like to bike on Maui. You'll find every type of Maui mountain biking available for all types of riders and skill levels. For example, while the mountain bike trails in the Makawao Forest are fun for beginners, experienced riders will find challenging terrain with single tracks and plenty of hills for jumping. Located between the 3000 to 3600 ft elevation on slopes of Haleakala, mountain biking the Makawao Forest Reserve is a great way to cool off and experience a different geography of Maui.
The terrain available for mountain biking combined with the many different micro climates afford some of the most diverse bike riding conditions found anywhere on the planet. From the gritty volcanic cinder crusted single track mountain bike trails at the top of the Haleakala Skyline trails to the eucalyptus forests of Polipoli or the upcountry feel of the Makawao Forest reserve, you won't be disappointed choosing a Maui mountain bike vacation.Watch a short mountain bike video of a ride through the Makawao Forest Reserve:
