Hike with us through 50 years! July-September Victory Hikes

Last quarter, our outings leaders and volunteers had a great time sharing with everyone some of Sierra Club of Hawaiʻi’s greatest accomplishments through Victory Hikes statewide. We visited Wiliwilinui on Oʻahu, Māhāʻulepū at sunset on Kauaʻi, Wailua Iki and Hāmākua on Maui, and Oʻoma through the Ala Kahakai Trail on Hawaiʻi Island.

Each Victory Hike celebrates the club’s past, present, and future efforts in building, protecting, preserving, and/or improving a particular area. We encourage you to attend one or more of these outings and bring along friends to join in the celebration and learn about the club’s efforts and successes. See more of each Group’s outings here. See you on the trails!

MOKU LOA GROUP  |  Saturday,  August 4 – Pu‘u Maka‘ala
Join us for an outstanding hike through an old growth native forest at Pu‘u Maka‘ala, protected and managed by the Natural Area Reserve System. After the Kūlani Correctional Facility closed, the Moku Loa Group and partners supported the expansion of the Natural Area Reserve to include the former facility area.

In the last quarter of 2018, stay tuned for Pohu‘e Bay and more!

O‘AHU GROUP  |  Sunday, August 12 – Maunawili Trail
The O‘ahu Group was instrumental in the construction of some of O‘ahu’s most popular hiking trails in Maunawili. The Maunawili Demonstration Trail was built in 1991-1993—the Sierra Club O‘ahu Group built the first 9 miles of the trail and the Boy Scouts and Marines finished the last mile into Waimanalo. The O‘ahu Group also built the Maunawili Falls Trail in 1996 and spent an additional summer in 1997 improving the first 2 miles of the demonstration trail. The next year, the Group also developed an additional connector trail.

In the last quarter of 2018, stay tuned for Ka‘ena Point and more!

Learn how the Kaua‘i Planning Commission was legally challenged in order to assure there were increased building setbacks along the ridge at Donkey Beach to preserve the views on and along the coastline.
