The west side of the Kahakapao Loop - singletrack through diverse forest.

Description

The west side Kahakapao singletrack starts at the top of the Kahakapao East trail. The route rolls out along a steep bench cut trail and then dips through a drainage below a large forest of lush ferns and eucalyptus trees with an open canopy.

After climbing a short pitch, the route continues to descend gradually through a series of turns. The forest through this side of the Kahakapao Loop tends to be more open. The trail is also a bit drier.

The trail crisscrosses an old doubletrack route so watch for the red badges on the trees to stay on the singletrack.

Kahakapao West finishes through a beautiful section of verdant green jungle filled with more ferns and moss covered rocks.
