Hike Rules

On Hawaiian Trail and Mountain Club (HTMC) sponsored hikes, we request a $3.00 donation for each non-member, age 18 or over. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Please sign our release and abide by our rules.

We meet at Iolani Palace, mountain side, at 8 AM unless otherwise noted on the hike description. (see Map and Directions here) 

We do not arrange transportation. However, you are welcome to arrange your own. You are cautioned not to leave valuables in parked cars.

Bring lunch and water on all hikes. Wear sturdy shoes and clothing. Extra caution may be required on some trails. You are responsible for yourself at all times. Be safe.

Keep trails and lunch sites free of litter; treat trees and plants with respect and care. ALWAYS be careful with fire, matches and cigarettes. Firearms and pets are prohibited on hikes.

Many of our hikes require special permission. The State of Hawaii, Dept of Natural Resources, Na Ala Hele program website has free maps and information on public trails.
