Hey, guys. Welcome to the Barefoot Hikers. No, we don't hike Barefoot, just reference our love of Hawaii and the many beach and outdoor type activities we do. Dangerous hiking conditions and unique trail composition meant hours of research in our efforts to find the most enjoyable, fun, and safe hikes on island. Local interactions, museum and library findings lead to incredible discoveries on the history and culture of the Hawaiian lands.
The desire to share not only the trails, but the experiences gained from the group's attempt to plan fun day hikes and events lead to what the Barefoot Hikers hold true today. We love all things, and all people and welcome diversity as our strongest quality.
So more about me, Jeremy. I am the founder, researcher, and only remaining member of Barefoot Hikers' core group. I teaches fun facts on hiking safety while volunteering my time to instruct and teach about experiences on Hawaiian lore and history. I know very little Hawaiian, so bear with me as I stumble through the words and ask for help on harder terms. It is a passion and something I will continue to do wherever I am.
Note: There isn't room on our trip for anyone using illegal drugs or alcohol on Hawaii trails. We need people attentive as sometimes there are dangers. Pakalolo/Spice is not allowed.
