CLIMB SUMMARY

Bicycle ride Round Top Drive - views of Diamond Head and Honolulu

Cycling Peacock Flats (Mokuleia Forest Reserve Access Road)

Ride 3.6 miles to elevation 1,505’ gaining 1,495’ at 7.9%

View north to the North Shore community of Mokulēia

This climb is in the North Shore area of Oahu, only 20 miles from Oahu, but traffic could extend an otherwise 30 minute drive to an hour-plus so keep that in mind in selecting a start time for the cycling trip.

There is plenty of parking at the entrance to the Reserve Access Road.  We encountered many hikers, but no other cyclists on our climb.  There is no public vehicle traffic on the narrow road, but do be careful as there are many sharp turns and you will likely encounter several service vehicles along the route. We are in a tropical setting for the first part of the climb which does open up for a bit along upper portion of the route which gives us great views of the north shore behind us to the north.
