DESCRIPTION:  THE KEALIA TRAIL BEGINS AT THE DILLINGHAM AIRFIELD IN MOKULEIA.

A NUMBER OF SWITCHBACKS LEADS TO THE TOP OF THE RIDGE OVERLOOKING THE AIRFIELD AND A VIEW OF NORTHERN OAHU. PAST THIS POINT THE TRAIL BECOMES WELL GRADED AND EVENTUALLY BECOMES A DIRT ROAD FOR A SECTION OF THE TRAIL. 

 

THIS LARGER CLOCKWISE LOOP VARIATION DETOURS OFF TO AN ADJACENT RIDGE BEFORE RETURNING TO THE KEALIA TRAIL WITH A VIEW OF MAKUA VALLEY AT ITS TERMINUS. ALTHOUGH NOT A DIFFICULT TRAIL CRITICAL JUNCTIONS ON THE TRAIL ARE NOT APPARENT WITHOUT THE AID OF EXISTING RIBBONS.
