What we’re about

This Group started in Maui and still continues to be a success there. If you find yourself in Maui please look up Craig and join him on one of his hikes.

I keep the name for traditions sake, but hikes can be any day, time and length. Mainly hikes will be on the weekends in the morning. This group and it's organizers do not function as hiking guides. Members and organizers gather as friends to explore new hikes and enjoy familiar ones alike.

At minimum, always come prepared with water and proper hiking shoes.
Another highly recommended gear would be spikes for the steep, muddy and/or loose dirt conditions on many trails. They are also very useful for rock hopping up streams to waterfalls. All other gear is up to you. I recommend researching hiking essentials if you've never done much hiking before.

Trails in Hawaii are not like trails on the mainland. If you are coming from the mainland, I would take the difficulty of the hike and bump it up one level. An easy hike in Hawaii would often be at least an early intermediate hike on the mainland.

Rules for attending a hike for all attendees and their guests:

1. Come prepared. Not bringing the proper supplies puts undue stress on other hikers and can turn a fun day out into a stressful one. Required supplies are listed in every hike description. Any hiker who does not bring the required supplies will be turned away. Safety first. No exceptions.

2. Observe people's right to personal space. Keep at least 3 feet of distance between you and the person in front of you. Do not touch others without their permission, except in emergency situations (like helping someone avoid falling.) If you want to help, ask if that person wants help first.

3. Socialize respectfully. Do not make unsolicited comments about other people’s bodies/appearance, religious or ethnic backgrounds, sexuality and so forth. Discrimination and harassment will not be tolerated.

4. All hikes begin with a group photo for safety reasons. If anyone gets lost, we have a picture of you and what you were wearing when you started the hike. Those uncomfortable being photographed can request that we take 2 group photos, one with them and one without. The one with them will not be posted to meetup and is for reference in an emergency only. On a related note, ask others if it’s okay to photograph them before doing so.

5. Attendees who leave a hike early are required to notify the host before leaving. If the host is not available, they must notify the next available attendee and that person is required to notify the host. If there are no other persons available to notify, the attendee must immediately message the host in meetup that they are leaving and again once they finish hiking out. Failure to notify the host may result in having to call the police to file a missing persons report.

6. No loud music. Keep conversations to a moderate volume. Keep loud outbursts to a minimum. We are here to converse and make new friends, but also to enjoy the quiet beauty of nature.

7. Do not bring pets without notifying the host first. The exception being a hike that is already listed as dog friendly.
