The Peacock Basics (Revised)

I'm assembling the basic stats on the Peacock run and am seeking the help of some of the techie gadget people. Here is what I have:

These are the revised numbers based on input.  If you have a gps I would appreciate your input. I have supplied a blank chart that you can carry along and fill in. (what great fun!!) 

I would like a check of the distances,  the beginning elevations, the elevation nets,  and if possible the total and subtotals for elevation change over each section.   Let me know what your phone, gps or satellite is showing.  Some of these section are quite hard to get a handle on.  The topo maps are driving me nuts. I finally just started putting down what I thought sounded about equal to the pain.  So far so good. 

Post any suggested changes or additions as comments. Thanks   Mike M.

Mike, do you have a measure for the parking lot to the paved access road? I am talking about leaving the parking area and heading through the airport and then exiting onto Farrington Hwy and heading down to the paved access road. We've been biking it from the parking area as described above, up paved access road, across the top-Kuaokala Road to Kealia Fire Road and down the switchbacks to my truck at 13.8.

Mike,
I've never made note of the specific elevation gain/loss for each section, but I get a net 9K gain.

I've been running up there for years and have consistently come up with just over 28 miles for a full loop, but that is starting at the parking lot. It's a 1/4 mile from the parking to the trail head. (green fence line).
Your point to point distances look pretty accurate. I come up with a few tenths difference here and there, but it really depends on where your start and end points are.

Top loop: (Top of Kealia, head toward domes, single track to water stash and back to top of Kealia): 6.5
Long road.
-- Yellow gate at Farrington Hwy to yellow gate at campground: 3.6 miles.
-- Yellow gate at Farrington Hwy to trail head (Kuaokala) 4.0 miles.
-- Yellow gate at Farrington Hwy to top of road. (old nike base) 4.85

I'll be out there this weekend, so I'll make a point to try to verify some of these sections.

Mike, those distances all look pretty accurate from what I remember. I have it written down somewhere. I've never done the elevation so that is good info. Thanks! Aloha, Bob

Actually, looking at my graph again I get a total of 10,382 ft of ascent and 10,276 ft of descent. sorry about the double post.

Devon

Thats what I get, also. See you out there.
