The Trip-Finder, January 1998
The Route: Spend seven days at a 100-year-old, 54,000-acre cattle ranch laced with dirt roads and singletrack trails on Hawaii's least-populated major island. You'll then make day rides from three remote but well-equipped camps.
When to go: March to May, September to October
Difficulty: Moderate to strenuous
Travel advisory: If you bring your own bike, be sure to use Slime or a similar tube sealant. Nasty thorns from kiawe trees regularly puncture tires.
