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 please look up Craig and join him on one of his hikes.
Hikes are on Sunday at 9am. Subject to Host availability.
Please wear appropriate shoes for hiking (hiking boots, trail runners, etc. No flat bottomed shoes) and bring with you spikes for muddy or loose dirt conditions.
Bring ample amounts of water and drink it. I recommend at least 2 Liters.
Optional, but suggested stuff to bring: A snack or two, bug spray, sunscreen, trekking poles, a headlamp, a dry bag, small first aid kit.
Groups are kept small for safety reasons, those on the waitlist will be moved over when those going unrsvp in sequential order.
A bit about me:
My name is Lehua and I am born and raised on Oahu. I took over this group after our old Organizer and my good friend Glen moved back to the mainland. I love to explore and prefer to tackle the harder hikes more often than not. I deeply appreciate these islands as my home and respect the nature here greatly and hope you do too. For me hiking is about a lot more than a workout, so I don't mind spending the whole day on a trail, taking it all in.
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
