This is a group for families interested in hiking. Make getting fit and healthy a family affair, while socializing, meeting new people, and exploring this beautiful island of Oahu. Kids today spend too much time indoors playing video games, watching TV, etc...Spending time outdoors hiking with kids is an excellent opportunity to make lifelong memories, develop a genuine connection to the natural world and get exercise and fresh air. All skill levels are welcome. Most of our hikes will be beginner to moderate level.
Tips for a safer, more enjoyable hike: Bring plenty of water, snacks, wear comfortable shoes with good grip, and dress for the weather. It's also a good idea to bring your cell phone and a small first aid kit. Other items that may be needed include bug spray, sunscreen and a hat. You may also prefer to bring a hiking stick for stabilization on slick surfaces.
***Minor children (under the age of 18) must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, as this is a FAMILY hike. ***
