Poli Poli Springs is located up above Kula which conatains a variety of hiking, biking and hunting trails. The most pupular is the Mamane trial which descends more than 800’ over 1.8 miles from the trailhead on skyline to its conclusion on Waipoli Road. The start of the trail is above treeline and rolls smooth and fast. As the trail progresses it quickly descends into low brush and tree cover and becomes increasingly technical. Rocky and rooty sections abound. The trail becomes the most technical at the bottom.
When it is dry the soil is the consistency of fine silt. Riding in dry conditions may compromise traction and can create clouds of dust. Many people prefer to ride Mamane when the ground is moist and tacky.Read More
The Haleakala Summit/Skyline Ridge Trail is an amazing ride. It is a great way to see the island, and to ride from the Summit, an option that isn’t available from commercial tour operators! The views from the Summit (elevation 10,023ft) are simply breathtaking. You will be able to see young cinder cones in Haleakala’s volcanic crater and view the masterpiece of colors and rugged topography that only the forces of nature can create. As you make your descent, you will ride off-road via the Skyline Ridge Trail and catch glimpses of the Big Island.Read More
