This Group started in Maui and was wildly successful at bringing people together and exploring that island. That group still continues to be a success there and if you find yourself in Maui I suggest you look up Craig and join him on one of his hike In the meantime I have moved to Honolulu and now it's time to explore what Oahu has to offer. Hike will start at 10 am on Sundays usually meet at trail head unless the trail head has limited parking wherein we will meet at a parking lot and commute in. I am not familiar with the majority of the hikes on Oahu yet so I will be learning the trails as we go. This means I cannot accurately give a time table of end times and there may be some missteps along the way. Hikes will typically range from 1-3 hours and are generally not terribly technical, I will try to make notes of anything unusual in advance on the site. Hikes are at your own pace and generally the group breaks into 2-3 smaller groups based on pacing. Your safety rests on your shoulders. Please bring ample water and appropriate shoes on any hike. Lastly if anyone has any hike they particularly want to go on please email it to me with details and I will see what can be done about adding it to the roster
SAFETY TIPS FOR HIKING: Inform a friend of your route and your expected time of return. Never hike alone or go beyond your capability Always bring water, basic first aid kit and rain gear, just in case. Do not drink stream water which contains biological impurities STAY ON THE TRAIL. YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN HEALTH AND SAFETY Plan your hike by knowing the terrain to be covered, the length of the trail, weather conditions, time of day, and hazards along the trail. Allow ample time to return before nightfall by figuring 1.5 miles per hour. Carry proper equipment, including a first aid kit and plenty of water. Wear proper shoes and clothing. Stay on the designated trail and be extra cautious when crossing streams and walking on wet, slippery trails or on loose, crumbly soil or rock. Hike in a group and keep track of those in your party.
It all distills to this: Use caution and take care of yourself. Know your limitations and be realistic about them. When in doubt ask! Of course have fun but also take care of yourself
