See you there!
Ohana Trail Users:
Most of the drains and switch berms at the top of the new section have been raked and repaired, some in the pouring rain this afternoon. They are extremely soft from the rain and need a few days to dry without any ruts or tracks to retain their optimal shape and drainage. Please avoid the upper new section until it can dry properly, probably 2 -3 days at least. Sticks, logs, and rocks were removed as well, these are temporary fixes that may provide immediate relief from the mud but ultimately compromise the proper drainage of the trail and hold more water than dirt alone. Please don’t modify the drains with these objects, if it’s that wet, then it’s too wet to ride. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
The Ohana Trail is almost complete and we’d appreciate your help to get it ready to ride from top to bottom.
What: Volunteer Trail Care day for all interested
Where: Ohana Trail, it connects from the White Fence trail on the Waimanalo side of Old Kalanianaole Hwy, keep right and follow the trail that heads toward the peaks of Olomana. For more info, email firstname.lastname@example.org
When: Saturday, October 10th, 11am-5pm
Bring: Water, safety glasses, closed toe shoes, (preferably) long pants, work gloves, bug spray, any tools you like to use (especially loppers and small cutting tools, or flat shovels if you love berms), a signed waiver. Please no children under 13 or dogs, it can be a dangerous activity for those that aren’t aware of swinging shovels etc.
Come anytime during the window, no one is expected to work for 6 hours, a little of your time goes a long way. Please fill out and bring a waiver from here if you have not done so in the last year.
Hope to see you there, thank you in advance,

From the Dirt Riders Of Pupukea Paumalu:
Due to her popularity, Hula Girl is in desperate need of a make over.
We are scheduling a trail work day for this Saturday, Sept 5. Meeting at the Sunset Hills trailhead at 8 AM. Or you can meet us at Lilikoi Junction at 8:30 AM.
We will focus all of our attention on Hula Girl. There are several sections that need attention.
We could really use your help.
We will have tools but we ask you to bring any tools that you have that may be helpful; shovel, McLoed, Pulaski, Pick, Loppers, Weed whacker, etc.
We will have two bike trailers to haul in tools, but we’ll need to hand carry some tools also.
We plan to work till early afternoon, but feel free to help out for any amount of time that you have.
Please reply to email@example.com so we know who’s coming and how many tools to bring. Also please let us know if you plan to bring any of your own tools.

Thank you to all who came up on Sunday to help with the finishing work on the Ohana Trail Completion, a lot was accomplished with a small crew! There’s a large amount of cut trail that needs to be finished now, the pace has picked up beyond what we could finish this weekend. Lots to do, hope to see you next Sunday.
The only scheduled trail day for the immediate future is Sunday, August 16th, from 1-5pm.
Trail Care Days this Friday and Sunday, Aug 7th & 9th.
Finishing work is needed on the newly cut sections of trail and other odd jobs.
What to bring:
Water, safety glasses, closed toe shoes, (preferably) long pants, work gloves, any tools you like to use (especially loppers and small cutting tools like handsaws etc), a signed waiver. Please no children under 13 or dogs, it can be a dangerous activity for those that aren’t aware of swinging shovels etc.
Where to go:
just walk or ride up the white fence trail and follow it to big tree, then follow the small fire road until it meets up with the existing new trail, you should be heading toward the peaks of Olomana, with the new development on your right side. Keep heading up the trail until you run into a work crew or all the way to the new section that will be marked with a yellow sign. If you are unfamiliar with the white fence trail, it is right at the junction of Old Kalanianaole Hwy, and the Current Kalanianaole Hwy on the Waimanalo side. You can call me (Leland) at 808-224-6745 if you need more instructions or help.
Friday, August 7th, 3pm – 6pm
