Prior to the development of the Kahakapao Loop, the renegade trail was the only single track in Makawao Forest. Renegade is an advance cross-country trail; as its challenging to climb and descend. It rolls, flows, twists and turns down the mountain. Technical features such as fallen branches, tight hairpin turns exposed roots prevail. One section hugs the edge of a steep gulch and is littered with an array of exposed roots.
Renegade trail intersects the west side of the Kahakapao loop at the top and bottom.
