Trail is good to go, but expect dry, dusty and loose trail surface and/or occasionally deep sandy areas.

Loam, pine trees, solitude, rock drops, and a couple of berms: Mahalo is a great trail. Folks tend to take it north to south, but it’s actually fun either direction. Either way, there’s a fair mix of climbing and descending. It’s not uncommon to see wildlife on Mahalo: we’ve seen deer, a black bear, and wild turkeys. Can be looped with Around the Mountain, Shingle Creek or Dry Creek.

  • The Los September 9, 2018 at 3:37 pmI'm very sorry to hear that this happened. I'm the Executive Director for the Southwest Idaho Mountain Bike Association. I just rode Mahalo on Friday to cut out a fallen tree about 3/4 of the way down, and I wish I had looked here first. I honestly am unclear about the stumps you're talking about, but sometimes you get sort of blind to stuff on a trail. I will try and make it back up there this week to take care of those stumps. Hope your son recovers quickly, Carlos
  • Rokjox August 20, 2018 at 3:45 pmsorry about the double post... this first one should be deleted, but I see no provision...
  • Rokjox August 20, 2018 at 3:40 pm...about 1/2 mile plus from the upper entrance to Mahalo is a bunny hop that drops onto what used to be a few nuisance trees about 2+ inches dia. These saplings have been cut off at 3" above ground, leaving small stumps. One in the center of the trail is a obstacle on landing, but the other, about 8 feet further along, is camouflaged by leaf shadows and is hooked... just enough to collapse the XTR front wheel set that hit it! Of course, (my son) was instantly pitched as the wheel sprung half taco... ...we walked back out... w/ a broken collarbone. Somebody should saw them off at ground level... I like obstacles, but he never really even saw it. And the bunny hop just prior means you'll always be tempting the fast landing to be a disaster over nothing but a bad prune job. I wont be going up that way for a while, my partner will be out for a long time now... but maybe somebody might think to fix that stump for me. A Stupid hazard, not a challenging one...

    These saplings have been cut off at 3″ above ground, leaving small stumps. One in the center of the trail is a obstacle on landing, but the other, about 8 feet further along, is camouflaged by leaf shadows and is hooked… just enough to collapse the XTR front wheel set that hit it!

    Of course, (my son) was instantly pitched as the wheel sprung half taco… …we walked back out… w/ a broken collarbone.
