Trail Cleanup: Give Back to the Community! Beginners OK

Please join this Hike and Clean-Up Session.  Get a fitness experience, give back to the community, see the Pearl from the ground level. 

Who maintains the trails we use?  We do!  The Hawaii Trail and Mountain Club maintains 320 miles of trails here on Oahu, but they can't do everything.  It is our turn to help.  Come out for a walk and pick up trash along the bike path.  It is a pleasant time and the job well done is its own reward.

The Pearl Harbor Bike Path was created by converting a rail line to trails under the aptly named "Rails to Trails" initiative.  It needs to be picked up every now and then, there is a lot of traffic. 

We are partnering with Navy and Air Force, service organizations, churches and other community volunteers for this Clean-Up Day.  They will supply the trash bags.  You might bring an old pair of gloves. 

Distance:  Less than 4 miles.

Time:  2-3 hours or as long as you like.

Difficulty:  Easy, it's a flat paved path. 

Shoes:  Closed toes only, no sandals or flip-flops.  

Dogs are allowed (on leash)

    Yesterday, our group of a dozen hikers hauled a dozen bags of trash off the Pearl Harbor Bike Path. Plus, we found an abandoned shopping cart and used it to haul out the load. Sweet! Double Duty as trash and trash hauler. With that, we were able to pick up all kinds of abandoned TV parts, motorcycle parts, broken umbrellas, and things that don’t fit in a trash bag. Then we piled the bags on and tied them around the cart. In the end, it looked like one of those homeless carts. This event was sponsored by numerous charities, about 100 people total showed up. They ran out of trash bags, so good thing one of our team brought some! Thanks! Your eyes and smiles told me you enjoyed this day to beautify our world. Great Work.
