Thanks man, appreciate the info.
Sounds like there are good number of choices to ride.
Happy to hear some of the trails in the Volcano park are bike friendly.

Hawaii Volcano Nat'l Park, the mellower trails are now open to MTBs absolutely no MCs, in the old days we'd do Ninja MTB Runs through the Park Hiking trails, wife works there no so no civil disobedience for me...

Mana Road, basically a firebreak type road that goes along the eastern side of Mauna Kea, OK for motorcycles, can go WFO!!!!

Beach Road is pretty good and leads to other good opportunities for MCs, mellow for MTBs.

Old Puna Road if you can find it is brutal after the first mile and a half, I've never done it but heard stories of guys getting helicoptered out after spending the night... Check It Here

Mud Lane just east of Waimea is nice single track for MTBs and MCs.

I'll think of some more and let you know.
