Parked at the entrance to Kekaha Kai and rode 0.3 miles on Queen K. to trailhead. Rode down lava trail then looped back up Kekaha Kai access road. (4.7 miles total) Lava portion is marked with white lines that are easy to follow for the most part and trail follows some natural lava flows and has small lava caves. The cut across from the lava trail to Kekaha Kai access road is cobblestone lava and rough, but overall is a good ride. (Kekaha Kai access road was closed at the time and had no traffic. Normally has heavier vehicle traffic when open.)

Super boring. Trail is not marked. Thank goodness the guy at the bike shop said to follow the white paint. The beach that’s right there, is amazing though.
