As a self-described outdoor enthusiast one of my favorite activities is to hit the trails. I have experienced a variety of challenging and beautiful trails while hiking and backpacking all over Hawaii and met a number of interesting people along the way. I have come to know that there are a few different types of hikers you’ll meet. Some prefer interesting geological, or botanical characteristics, scenic vistas, or cooling waterfalls; others prefer challenging hikes with long mileage, difficult, vertical terrain, or narrow ridgelines. And then, there are those who prefer “famous” hikes with characteristics or reputations that make for good social media posts.
Aloha HILT ‘Ohana,
Here are a few HILT updates for April 2017:
Talk Story on the Land Series:
Our 2017 Talk Story on the Land series if off to a great start! Many of our free hikes open to the public have been booked to capacity. To join us on our guided hikes, please visit: http://www.hilt.org/talk-story-on-the-land/
Hawaiian Islands Land Trust (HILT) has launched its 2017 “Talk Story on the Land” environmental education series of free, guided hikes across the islands. The popular series aims to connect residents and visitors with the ‘āina (land).
“One of the best things about Hawai‘i is our storied places and our beautiful natural and cultural resources. We want to share these stories and these places that have been preserved for future generations,” said Kawika Burgess, CEO of HILT.
