Experience the “great outdoors” of Hawaii on two feet and two wheels. Begin with a two-mile hike on a private trail in the beautiful Manoa Valley to enjoy a brisk hike through the rainforest and follow a mountain stream past a hidden bamboo forest to the base of a cascading 200-foot waterfall.  After your hike, you’ll be taken to the top of a volcanic cinder cone where you will coast downhill 5 miles of paved road on comfortable Kona mountain bikes.  Visit a tropical rainforest with magnificent views of Oahu and smell fragrant tropical flowers and fruits along the way. See grand vistas of Punchbowl Crater, Diamond Head and the Koolau and Waianae Mountains.  Enjoy learning about Hawaii’s culture, geology and flora from experienced guides along the way.
